What’s the problem?
Brettanomyces can affect the entire wine production, if you discover it too late. In this case, wineries risk to lose a large amount of time and money to decontaminate their products.
Prevention for your wine
Grape has already developed Self-brett®, a ready-to-use kit for detecting Brettanomyces in wine. The device is very useful during the winemaking process, but it would be advantageous if wineries could prevent the deterioration of the wine already from the grapes harvest, and intervene promptly in the case of Brettanomyces.
Grape has developed a device to directly analyze the grapes, in order to find out in advance if they are contaminated. In this case you can intervene promptly with appropriate treatments.
Discover Self-brett for Grape®
Self-brett for Grape is a easy to use device, fast in results and intuitive.
To use it just collect 5-10 grapes with a pair of sterile scissors, insert the berries in the sterile bag present in the package, press them and pour the must thus obtained into the Self-brett that you will find in the kit.
