LAB ANALYSIS

Panels of chemical analyses are grouped according to the stage of winemaking. Individual juice and wine tests are available. Results are delivered with rapid turnaround by email. Interpretation of lab results and suggested recommendations of appropriate winemaking decisions are among the other services offered. Every effort is made to provide accurate results quickly. In-house standardization is systematically performed. Please contact us for pricing.
