Wine is a very delicate agricultural product, whereby, similar grape varieties can achieve very different aromatic profiles due to various cultivation conditions. With these variations, aroma profiling of wine is essential in the production process to identify consumers' preferences, formulating conditions and also quality control. These aromatic profiles are determined by a multitude of volatile compounds that are usually characterized comprehensively using GC/GCMS.

In this webinar, Professor Erich Leitner will share his knowledge of wine profiling and how GC/GCMS as analytical tool can help identify the origin of different wines.
