EV 204
Science of Winemaking II


Credits: 5
Clock Hours per Quarter: 70

AA Discipline:

Lecture Hours:30    Lab Hours:40


Description
Emphasizes the chemistry of winemaking, wine analysis and quality control. Students will learn wine composition, wine analytical techniques, and the relevance of these analyses to winemaking decisions. Students will also gain knowledge of wine filtration and post-fermentation wine stewardship. Prerequisites: Successful completion of EV 203.

Intended Learning Outcomes
  • Understand the chemistry behind and methods of basic wine analyses through observation, and reproduce the lab analyses via hands on practice.
  • Repeat analyses including pH, titratable acidity, ethanol, free and total sulfur dioxide, and volatile acidity.
  • Independently reproduce individual lab analyses in a vintage work environment and be able to appraise the results.
  • Understanding the methods to evaluate, manage and modify various chemical components in a winery environment.
  • Evaluation of various species of wine phenolics, experience their taste perception, how to manage them in wine by investigating their responses to ageing, varietal type and fining regimes in a laboratory environment.
