An e-book published for canned wine making: THE WINEMAKER’S GUIDE TO WINE IN A CAN

Tuesday, November 23, 2021

In South Africa, thanks to the recent collaboration between the industry organization Winetech, author Dr Carien Coetzee and the supplier of oenological products and solutions Enartis South Africa, an important resource about canned wine making has been published: The Winemaker’s Guide to Wine in a Can. The book brings together the results of international scientific research and the experience of different canning and oenological companies.

Although the popularity of canned wine has been increasing, we still need more resources for winemakers to fully understand the effect of aluminum packaging on the wine quality, and which factors to consider for canned winemaking. This e-book covers both of these important aspects, giving detailed information on the characteristics of the aluminum packaging and explaining potential issues encountered during storage of canned wines. Learning more about these issues allows winemakers to prepare wines that are suitable to embrace the interaction with this type of packaging and its medium, without losing its quality and longevity.

You can download the digital version of the book free of charge from the Winetech website.
