About the lecturer

Dr Bertil Magnusson Bertil started as a marine chemist looking for traces of metals in the Oceans in the 70’s. After his PhD, he joined AKZO-NOBEL, and worked there as a specialist in analytical chemistry mainly with spectroscopy (XRF, XRD, ICP) and wet chemistry.In 2002 Bertil joined SP, now RISE (Research Institutes of Sweden). He is working with analysis and quality in measurements including accreditation, quality control, validation, measurement uncertainty and decision making. A major part is teaching and taking part in writing guidelines from e.g. Nordtest and Eurachem. In 2016 he started a small company to support the quality in measurement for laboratories.

The agenda of this seminar is about the winemaking practices in Mediterranean climates and conditions. 
The seminar and workshop are delivered by Dominique Delteil, Master in Viticulture and Oenology, a distinguished International Wine Consultant and wine research and development scientist. The new international practices from the veraison of vines to the ageing of wines are discussed based on the latest research and development studies most of which are the result of his own R&D studies.

  • Treatment of wine at the beginning of veraison
  • Juice clarification and extraction of quality components 
  • Chitosan derivates 
  • Reduction of SO2 in wines
  • Improving yeast viability
  • Yeast nutrient concepts
  • Protection of flavour and prevention of browning of white/rose wines.
  • Selection and research projects of specific yeast for specific wine styles. 
  • Avoiding increased volatile acidity in juices
  • Malolactic fermentation, various types of bacteria, various wine styles and tannic intensity
  • Protecting wine by organic application (Chitosan derivate) from bretanomyces
  • Reducing content of dissolved oxygen in wine
