While in recent years, wine consumption has decreased, consumers still perceive wine as a natural and
authentic beverage. The trend is showing that while consumption is down, revenue is stable. Meaning
that people are spending more for better quality wine. The main criteria among consumers in choosing
a quality wine are the region, followed by the denomination of origin, and finally the grape variety, to the
detriment of the wine grower. Therefore, the incentive to defraud wine and increase profit is high.
Unfortunately, the detection of fraudulent wine related to false DO declarations, regions or grape varieties
has been very challenging due to a lack of analytical methods available. The consequences of wine fraud
are devastating for the wine growers because they erode the consumers’ confidence in DO, regions
or grape varietals, leading to a plummet in sales. Bruker’s Wine-Profiling solution is an innovative and
powerful way to detect and prevent wine fraud.
Due to its unique “all-in-one“ capabilities, high-resolution 1H-NMR (Nuclear Magnetic Resonance) spectroscopy, combined with multivariate statistical chemometrics, is a powerful tool for testing the authenticity and quality of wine. Wine-Profiling can detect several hundred compounds in a wine sample simultaneously, which are used to characterize the wine through a comprehensive database of reference wines. The database is routinely updated with new variants for grape variety and geographical verification, providing a reliable, up-to-date, reference library
