The Role of Sulfur in Winemaking

Although used in winemaking for centuries, many consumers remain skeptical about the importance of sulfur dioxide (SO2) in creating shelf-stable wines.

In our second video from the Gravity Wine House Chemical Analysis Laboratory, we discuss the role of added SO2 in wine freshness and flavor, as well as how to measure and maintain optimal SO2 levels in wine.

Whether you’re an enology student looking to learn more about SO2 measurement or a wine drinker trying to understand the importance of this compound in your favorite beverage, join our chemists for another trip into the wine lab!
