Recent Advances in Wine Stabilization and Conservation Technologies is a book related to the developments in winemaking and mainly in wine stabilization and conservation technologies. The purpose of this book is to fulfill the need for accurate, state-of-the art information and perspectives regarding the most recent studies on wine stabilization and conservation technologies. The uses of these technologies have a great impact on wine quality in terms of microbiological, chemical and sensorial characteristics. Thus, this book is composed by nine chapters that provide current research on different topics of recent technologies used for wine stabilization and conservation, such as developments in wine tartaric and protein stabilization as well as membrane processes, different kinds of white wine aging, and the use of wood barrels and wood fragments from different sources in the wine aging process. This book also includes recent results about the impact of the different winemaking technologies, different wine stabilization processes, and conservation technologies on the wine physico-chemical composition and their relationship with wine sensorial properties. Written by a group of international wine researchers, this book provides up-to-date reviews, overviews and summaries of current research on wine stabilization and conservation process. This new book is an important publication which will be of great use to oenologists, food process engineers, wine scientists and oenology students, and other professionals that might be interested in reading and learning about some fascinating areas of wine research. The authors hope readers will use this compilation to discover the most recent tendencies of wine stabilization and conservation technologies. (Imprint: Nova)

“This book presents an update of the knowledge about “Wine Stabilization” and Conservation Technologies.” The recent advances in those topics are treated by relevant international scientists in the field, and the scientific coordination of the book has the leadership of two competent Enology scientists. This book will be a very useful updated document for academics (teachers and researchers) but also for Enology students, as well as for professional’s working in the wine sector, like winemakers, enologists, laboratory technicians.” – Jorge M. Ricardo-da-Silva, Full Professor in the Enology area, Instituto Superior de Agronomia/ Universidade de Lisboa, Portugal

“The visual impact of wine in glass is critical to the consumer’s response of ‘like’ or ‘dislike.’ The challenge for the wine industry is to ensure that wines are free of quality defects, not just at bottling but also during transport, storage and ageing. This book brings together a wealth of information on the stabilisation and protection of wine that is of major benefit to winemakers and oenologists and a handy reference guide to students of oenology.” – Dr. Geoffrey Scollary, Former Director of National Wine and Grape Industry Centre, Charles Sturt University – Australia

“This is an important book considering all advances in this area in recent years. The options now available are much more which puts an extra burden on the winemaker shoulders about which solutions to use. At the same time the problem is a classical one: The need to win the battle (having a stable wine), without losing the war (protecting the quality).” – Kathleen Franco, Dr. Rui Veladas, Winemaker/Production Manager, CARMIM Company – Portugal

“The book ‘Recent Advances In Wine Stabilization and Conservation Technologies’ provides an interesting and comprehensive overview on modern techniques in the field of wine treatments. In times of climate change and its needs to develop techniques to react to these new challenges, this book will help consumers and producers to find the right answers.” – Professor Monika Christmann, Head of Institute for Oenology, Hochschuke Geisenheim University – Germany
