While it may be impossible to meet in person, there is no reason to miss out on the 2020 Daikin South Africa Wine Seminar. Society is adapting in response to the pandemic and Daikin has transitioned and adjusted their seminar to fit the virtual space.

The 2020 Daikin South Africa Wine Seminar is designed for the entire wine production, management and marketing teams. We’ve managed to secure top speakers covering topics from winemaking processes to consumer insights to cellar technology.” says, Marketing Manager, Miguel Netto.

Topics you can look forward to, includes:

1. Underestimating the effect of even moderate ageing and/or storage temperatures (as opposed to low temperatures) on wine composition and quality is one of the main mistakes any wine producer can make. Tune in to Dr. Carien Coetzee’s presentation to find out more about the sensitivity of various aroma compounds to storage temperatures.

2. PhenoLAB analyses (providing important phenolic parameters) can be performed on grapes, juice, fermenting must and finished wines and help to make decisions during critical winemaking steps such as harvesting, processing (eg. maceration and pressing), blending and ageing. The new tool provides fast, accurate and reliable results and can even assist with interpretation. Don’t miss out on this informative presentation by Dr. José Luis Aleixandre-Tudó, from Stellenbosch University.

3.Your partner in sustainability and energy saving in wineries. Thirty years ago,
