Laboratory Analysis

The WRE provides the Virginia wine industry with a large amount of complimentary laboratory analysis which will quantify the impact of these practices on finished wine.  All experimental wines will receive basic wine chemistry analyses, and most wines also receive more rigorous analysis from ETS tailored to the particular type of project.  The WRE will then summarize and synthesize these results and present them to the industry in a way which is easy to understand.  These summaries will also include potential problems with these practices based on the results where applicable (such as if a practice makes wine less heat stable), and will suggest future directions for research.
