Cornell wine analysis lab re-launches

Inside the Cornell lab.
GENEVA -- The New York State Wine Analytical Laboratory has re-launched with new equipment and broader capabilities.

The facility, located in the Department of Food Science at Cornell’s New York State Agricultural Experiment Station here, offers more than 25 different chemical, microbiological, and sensory analyses of juice, wine, and distillates for quality assurance, trouble shooting, and federal regulatory compliance.

It also has a hotline for winemakers needing immediate assistance.

Analyses are offered at a discount to all New York bonded wineries, home winemakers, and craft distilleries because approximately one-third of testing costs are subsidized by the New York Wine & Grape Foundation (NYWGF).

The facility, which is a quarter-century old, does not offer the discount to wine distributors or out-of-state wineries because of the nature of NYWGF funding.
