Winemakers’ app launches

6th December, 2011 by Gabriel Stone

A new smartphone app has been created, which promises quick, accurate winemaking calculation tools.

Developed by Oenobrands, a Montpellier-based design firm, the Oenotools app has been created in collaboration with French oenologist Olivier Zébic.

The app’s functions cover a number of aspects involved in the winemaking process. This includes the addition of any powder, liquid or gas, such as gum arabic, which helps red wines retain pigmentation, enzymes, tannins and fining agents.

Oenotools also helps winemakers to calculate the amount of sulphites to add, as well converting units such as litres to gallons or brix into sugar concentration.

In addition the app can work out the conditions and flow rate for deoxygenation and decarbonisation where nitrogen stripping is used.

The app has been made available in four languages: English, Spanish, French and Italian.
