What Lallemand has to say about the seminar

The rapidity, unpredictability and irreversibility of recent climate change, extreme weather events, are some of the biggest challenges facing viticulturists and winemakers today.

  • What does it mean for the future of the industry?
  • Is it still possible to make good quality wine when sudden and severe weather events take place?
  • Can wines still be made to reflect site expression?

While the questions abound, the answers are less clear. One thing is certain; when it comes to climate change, wine brands must employ fresh thinking and the use of future-focused and science-based tools and strategies.

In this workshop we examine what can be done from a microbiological standpoint to continue making good quality wine under these conditions.

  • The results of latest research and trials
  • Lallemand’s top strategies around alcoholic and malolactic fermentations
  • Sanitary conditions of the grapes and contaminants management
  • How to balance phenolic maturity and physiological ripeness
  • Management of alcohol and acidity levels
  • How to overcome issues of contaminant development at high pH
