Due to effects of global warming, sugar content of wine is increasing. The team of the French scientific research institute the INRA therefore developed a method, that allows to reduce the degree of sugar in the wine.

The stakes are high for the French vineyards. The INRA has developed a special program to produce “quality wines with reduced alcohol content” (French acronym: VDQA). Twelve state companies and private partners are involved in the experiment. In short terms, the researchers work out a solution to reduce the alcohol content of wine, which seems an easy task. A part of the water and alcohol content is removed from the wine, than the resulting crop water will be reunited with the original wine. (MTI)
