Choose the long-standing trusted partner of the wine industry

With more than 20 years of experience in developing and distributing wine analysis instrumentation for more than 20 key wine quality parameters, Anton Paar is the market leader in beverage analysis. The portfolio includes measuring instruments for inline, at-line, and laboratory wine analysis. Combining laboratory and process instruments yields many benefits, especially for bigger producers; at the same time, each solution can stand on its own for accurate, reliable, and safe measurements. Anton Paar instruments will help you to provide your wine products in consistent quality and control them at every production step – from harvesting until final bottling. 

Go from fast screening to in-depth wine analysis in lab and process

More than 20 key quality parameters that you can analyze with Anton Paar instrumentation guarantee you in-depth knowledge about your wine and the right solution for your individual challenge in wine production. Solutions include the Lyza 5000 FTIR analyzer for fast screenings of more than 13 quality parameters in must, must in fermentation, and wine. Big wine producers and wine bottlers find many advantages in combining laboratory and process instrumentation, as shown in the graphic above, e.g. to control product quality or to reduce sample handling times. Wine farmers, on the other hand, might go for smaller solutions, such as DMA 35, while wine analysis labs need fast and comprehensive results that are delivered by FTIR.

Benefits for wine farmers

With the right analysis equipment you can easily answer questions such as:

  • When is the best time to harvest my grapes?
  • Do my grapes have the quality I expect?

Parameters you can measure to achieve this include grape sugar content and the acidity of grape juice. With this information you will be able to:

  • Determine the stage of grape development
  • Decide on the right time for harvest
  • Follow changes in the  acid composition

Benefits for wine producers and bottlers

Measuring solutions from Anton Paar for the wine industry will enable you to answer questions such as:

  • Are the grapes our providers deliver of the expected quality?
  • How is the fermentation progressing?
  • Is my wine profile correct?
  • Are product stability and appearance guaranteed?
  • Is this must composition suitable for effective fermentation?
  • And many more

Parameters you can measure to achieve this include sugar content, acidity, pH, turbidity, fructose, glucose, various acids and acid profile, alcohol, glycerol, specific gravity, and many more. For some parameters, you can use process meters to control the wine during production, and lab meters for quality control and calibrations. All in all, with this information you will be able to:

  • Guarantee the quality of your wine product to your customers
  • Control your product quality and production process all the way through, from grape to bottle
  • Reduce costs by reducing sample handling time
