From Grapes to Wines Cool Climate Webinars Second Session

Thursday, January 21, 2021

The first session of From Grapes to Wines webinars took place last week on January 14 with the presentation of Dr. Karine Pedneault from Université Sainte-Anne. She talked about ripening grapes in Eastern Canada with a deeper look at how the climate affects grape potential for winemaking. A lot interesting questions were raised during Q&A session. If you were unable to join us for this session, you can watch it on-demand on YouTube from this link.

We would like to invite you to the second session on January 28, 2021, at 12:00 pm (AST). In this upcoming session, Dr. Belinda Kemp and Hannah Charnock from the Cool Climate Oenology & Viticulture Institute (CCOVI) will be presenting ‘The influence of the type of sugar used, and the metal content on the flavour of sparkling wines’, followed by a Q&A session.

This session will explore whether metal concentrations of sparkling wines can tell us the origin of the grapes used in the wines. Metals are involved in many reactions in sparkling wine, but could they also help distinguish sparkling wines by their production method? Sugar contributes sweetness and balance when added to the dosage but could the source of sugar, the type of sugar and the way the sugar is made affect your sparkling wine flavour? Join us for having all the answers to these questions!
