Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Wine fining is an enological practice used over the centuries to eliminate undesirable wine components that may negatively affect quality, stability and/or safety. The final aim is to improve the visual and sensory quality of the resulting wine and to limit the presence of undesirable substances. Some of the fining agents have been used for a long time, however, in recent years, problems with some of them due to their allergenic nature have led to a search for alternatives and innovative processes. Due to all these aspects, we feel that there is a need for a Special Issue to join together the various and latest findings of this field. For the readers, this Special Issue will provide an attractive opportunity to more easily obtain information concerning the different facets of wine fining. For the authors, it will be an appropriate occasion to make their results and analyses more visible. This Special Issue will contain contributions discussing all the aspects broadly indicated by the keywords. Review articles by experts in the field will also be welcome.
