Bio/Research

In support of our outreach mission, the Enology Extension Laboratory focuses on research projects designed to help regional and small-scale wineries fine-tune wine quality and enhance production efficiency. Current areas of focus include fermentation nutrition, the sensory impact of wine phenolics, acid adjustment in cool- and cold-climate wine types, and defining the concepts of regional and cultivar typicity. Recent studies have addressed optimized measurement of yeast assimilable nitrogen (YAN) and its impact on wine aroma development, pigments (anthocyanins) and phenolic compounds in red hybrid and aromatic white wines, acid adjustment kinetics in high-malic musts, and expert and consumer perception of regional wines. The Lab also supports Cornell’s grape breeding program in the evaluation of the enological viability of new winegrape cultivars, and optimization of winemaking protocol for new
