Vinification and Bioprocessing

Our research is tailored to match the industry high demand for new knowledge and expertise on the vinification and healthy characteristics of southern wines. We conduct fundamental research in the area of healthy qualities of southern wines and provide training and experiential learning experience for students and industry clientele in the area of grape and small fruit enological characteristics and vinification qualities.
Ongoing research projects range from wine analysis and wine sanitation to understanding, characterization, and purification, of potential grape allergens; antioxidant capacities of phytochemicals in muscadine grapes; understanding the effect of grape phytochemicals in fighting obesity;  phytochemical bioavailability and efficacy in preventing chronic  diseases.
