Testing Services at a Glance

We provide the following testing services for all aspects of the wine process.


   Vines and Leaves
Ensure your grape vines and leaves are healthy and productive

A panel of tests for your vines which includes screening the vines for the production of key phenol and anti-oxidant precursors. We won't simply tell you that the chemicals are in the vine and leaves..we can tell you if the vines and leaves are actively making more with our novel gene expression profiling system.

To ensure great wine requires healthy vines and leaves to shade the grapes. FL Biognostics tests vines and leaves for potential plant damaging agents such as Xylella and Botrytis.


You want to be making wine long into the future, be sure your vines are as healthy as they can be.

   Fermentation
Find out early what organisms and chemicals are in your fermenting juice.

Fermentation is the process by which the 'must' (the primary, soon-to-be-wine mixture) turns into wine.

Fermenting juice may not have sufficient quantities of complex character producing chemicals. Find out early.

If your fermenting juice has spoilage organisms at the start you can be sure your wine is going to express the character of those organisms. Find out before your fermentation starts and tackle any problems early.

Great wines start with great grapes

Find out if your grapes are going to make that next great wine.

Do your grapes have enough anti-oxidant and phenol content to make a healthy and vibrant wine?

Are your grapes infected with bacteria like Lactobacillus, Pediococcus that might make a 'stuck' fermentation?

Are your grapes carrying "Brett" into your winery?

   Barrel Aging
Add character to your wine with the proper aging conditions.

The barrel aging process can be a terrific source of complex character for your wines. It can also be the time when you wines spoil and fail.

FL Biognostics offers a complete range of chemical tests incuding tannins and anti-oxidants to produce a healthy, complex wine.

Our biological tests will assist you in determining the organism content of your barrels..do you have enough live yeast to dry your wine? is your wine contaminated with Bret?

When you combine our biological and chemical tests you can determine if your wine is adding more complex character and when would be the best time to add SO4.

   Must
Must is the juice of freshly pressed grapes, that contains pulp, skins, stems & seeds

Must is the juice of freshly pressed grapes, that contains various quantities of pulp, skins, stems, and seeds, called pomace or grape solids, which typically comprise between 7–23 percent of the total weight of the must. These components, and the time they are allowed to be in contact with the juice, are critical to the final character of the wine.

When the winemaker judges the time to be right, the juice is drained off the pomace which is then pressed to extract the juice retained by the matrix. Yeast is added to the juice to begin the fermentation, while the pomace is often returned to the vineyard to be used as fertilizer. A portion of selected unfermented must may be kept as Süssreserve, in order to be added prior to bottling as a sweeting component.

   Final Product
Wine is an alcoholic beverage made from the fermentation of unmodified grape juice

Be it a red, white, or somewhere in between. Be it grape or apricot in origin. Your product can have tremendous marketing potential with the right combination of testing and evaluations.

More importantly, if you don't do the tests you may find that what was supposed to be terrific vintage ends up being spoiled by improper filtering and sterilization.
