Determination of the potentially histaminogenic population in the malolactic fermentation of Pago de Carraovejas wines

National Individual Project | 2011 – 2013

Objective: To reduce with a view to eliminating the presence of histamine to make the wines healthier, since this compound may cause an allergic reaction in sensitive individuals. After a number of years researching into lactic microbiotics in the estate and in the wine cellar, indigenous non-amine producing bacteria have been selected that have optimum fermentation qualities and are successfully being used in production in the wine cellar.
