Alcohol Correction & Adjustments

Imbalanced alcohol levels in wine can severely affect quality and possibly prevent market accessibility for winemakers. VAF Memstar provides a suite of alcohol correction, adjustment and removal services that can provide the desired alcohol in wine without sacrificing quality. Our service includes regular sensory trials for winemakers to assure quality and accuracy before final reduction processes occur.

How does it work?

Employing our patented reverse osmosis technology, the wine is separated into a concentrate and the alcohol-rich permeate. The permeate is then heated and passed through a specialized membrane that filters out alcohol while leaving other important components intact. Each pass typically removes approximately 1-2% of alcohol. The single tank recirculation method means that the process is simple to operate till the desired alcohol level is reached.
