Presentation :

Devoted exclusively to the micro-organisms of wine, Microbiology of wine - Fundamental bases and applications (2nd ed.) is the first work of synthesis to expose the scientific bases of the microbiological phenomena of winemaking and to describe the oenological applications which result from them. The constitution of yeasts and bacteria, their taxonomy, their multiplication, the population growth parameters during the production of wine are thus exposed, but also the causes of microbiological alterations, the improvement and use of selected strains, finally the stabilization and microbiological analysis of wines.

For this 2nd edition, the work has been completely revised to present the concepts that prevail today. It integrates new knowledge resulting from the application in oenology research of molecular investigation methods and data exploitation. The most recent knowledge on the general biology of wine yeasts and bacteria, on the complexity of the microbial system and its functioning on which the quality of wine depends, completes the essential bases of wine microbiology.

Accessible and practical, illustrated with numerous specific examples from field and laboratory experiments, this book is an essential tool for oenologists and winemakers.
