About Memlo – Alcohol Removal System

Memlo is our highly specialised alcohol reduction and removal service, and is an accurate and non-invasive method of crafting low to zero-alcohol wines – an expanding sector in an increasingly health-conscious market. Along with our ‘sweet spotting’ trialling service, delicately fine-tuning the balance of wine has never been more achievable.

An upcoming development in the Memlo range will soon allow vintners to remove alcohol entirely from their product.

How does it remove alcohol in wine?

Memlo technology uses both controlled vacuum and temperature to separate and concentrate the aroma fraction from the wine and then remove the alcohol. The specialised design and PLC control ensures the highest quality on the market, and the Memlo system removes as much as 99.5% alcohol in a single pass, reducing handling of the product. The closed loop design ensures minimal volume loss of wine and only alcohol is extracted, and the process can continue automatically until the desired alcohol level is reached.
