Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (15 November 2018).
Interests: grape and wine chemistry; analytical chemistry; sensory analysis; consumer research; viticulture; winemaking
Special Issues and Collections in MDPI journals
Special Issue in Foods: Chemical and Sensory Analysis of Alcoholic Beverages
Special Issue in Molecules: Smoke Taint in Grapes and Wine
This Special Issue will focus on all aspects of wine composition and quality analysis, from grape berries, to winemaking, maturation and packaging, as well as the relationships between wine composition, sensory properties, and quality. We encourage submissions that explore the composition and quality of grapes and wine, particularly contributions concerning grape and wine appearance, aroma, flavor, off-flavor and stability, or other sensory attributes which influence wine quality. Papers that focus on the development and application of new analytical methods for determination of wine composition and quality are also encouraged.
We invite submissions of original research and review articles that explore contemporary issues in grape and wine chemistry for inclusion in this Special Issue.
