Zoom: Roundtable on Malolactic Fermentation

Wednesday 22nd (5-6 PM) Zoom: Roundtable on Malolactic Fermentation
Malolactic Fermentation (secondary fermentation, MLF or ML for short) is the process in which malic acid in wine is converted to lactic acid. Mostly all red wines and some white wines go through ML after initial fermentation. Contrary to regular or primary fermentation (where yeast converts sugar into alcohol), ML is caused by bacteria.
NGGW members requested this ML session so here ‘ya go! An open discussion with lots of time for Q & A
• (10 Mins) ML, the Purpose & Benifits – Discussion led by Dave Perdue, Peavine Cellars
• (10 mins) ML Chemistry – Discussion led by John Klacking, PhD. DoubleBond Wine
• (10 Mins) ML Testing – Discussion led by Adrian Dyette, Dyette Family Vineyards
• (30 Mins) Roundtable Discussion – all participants

Our Guest Speaker

. . . is the fertilizer guru, Ken Ollenberger, Agronomist for Itronics Metallurgical, Inc., the manufacturer of GOLD’nGRO right here in Reno, Nevada.  Ken graduated with a degree in Agronomy from UC-Chico in 1972.  That’s correct, 1972. Ken has worked (exclusively) in the fertilizer industry now for 49 years, so (like the Allstate guy) he knows a thing or two, having worked in all phases of the industry; fertilizer application, equipment setup, retail sales and fertilizer manufacture representative.

Why You Should Attend This Zoom Meeting . . .

Chelated micronutrient fertilizers are used as supplements to crucial minerals like nitrogen and phosphate, zinc and potassium. By utilizing chelated micronutrients, you are ensuring your vines receive the exact nutrient elements they need; no more, no less
.
NGGW Member’s Complimentary Soil Test
First, Ken and his team conduct a complimentary soil test (see sample below). Based on the findings, each vineyard will then have its very own specialty fertilizer formula – developed through years of field studies – designed to generate more nutrient crops and an increased yield.
