 Second BEEWBC Wine Event of 2011 – Why should I worry about the pH and Total Acidity in my wine?


How does acidity affect the taste of your wine? What characteristics of a wine contribute to its ability to age well? How does a wine's pH affect spoilage, successful Malolactic Fermentation and flavor components? Can you always estimate a wine's pH by knowing its acidity? Should you invest in a good pH meter if you're serious about your wine? What can the winemaker do to achieve desired wine chemistry?

Well, there's the science and then again, there's experience, and I'll bet our club members have numerous opinions on this subject. With the 2011 wine making start just around the corner, this would be a good time to hear some opinions on these critical components of wine chemistry. So, come out and share your thoughts, do a little tasting and go home knowing a little bit more about this very important aspect of wine making.

Now's a good time to talk with others you know who may have indicated their interest in wine making, and invite them to attend. I'd also encourage any club members to bring a bottle of one of your wines that you are anxious to share, or one that you would like some other opinions on.

We'll have some wine friendly snacks to share, and so please send $5 per person to help offset the costs. You can send a check to either Fred Mazzitelli (18902 NE 150th St., Woodinville, WA 98072) or Haynes Arnett MS: 0L-67. Please respond to me at This email address is being protected from spambots.

Thanks, and looking forward to seeing you at our second Wine meeting of 2011!
