The fining process is a crucial stage in the production of all wine types. In winemaking, fining agents are used for a variety of different purposes including clarification, filterability improvement, haze prevention, sediment formation, organoleptic profile improvement, colour adjustment and removal of undesirable elements or flavors. Fining involves two very important reactions: flocculation and sedimentation. Flocculation involves the molecular interactions based on charge, chemical bonds and absorption. Sedimentation involves the flocculates which are not soluble and heavier than wine. Download the FAQ below for more information!
