Wine and Spirits Authenticity
  • Accreditation

Our wide range of analysis activities are underpinned by our UKAS accredited stable isotope analysis methods. These are performed to detect chaptalisation with either C3 or C4 sugars, as well as highlighting the addition of water. Our insights can verify the authenticity of your products, strengthening your brand and putting your customers at ease.

From this analysis, we can highlight various adulteration tactics across a range of measurable characteristics to ensure product authenticity is maintained across your supply chain, preventing risks of recall by ensuring purchased produce is supplied as described, and mitigating the risk of brand damage.

Within the EU, oenological practises and their implementation are covered by regulation and are typically informed by the recommendations of the International Organisation of Vine and Wine (OIV).

Wine authenticity is a major concern for industry, as chaptalisation occurrences & quality issues continue to be a mainstay. Fera’s analysis methods can highlight these issues & provide the insights required to address the underlying causes to ensure produce is fit for purpose.

Isotope ratio forms much of the basis of our authenticity analysis measures, and is used throughout our bespoke testing capabilities to inform our targeted analysis activities. To learn more about how we can meet your requirements through our flexible testing methods, contact us.
