We have been working with ETS Labs in

St. Helena, CA on several microbial issues associated with oak wine barrels, particularly the Brettanomyces spoilage yeast. ETS Laboratories conducted Scorpions analysis for Brettanomyces on several “before &

after” samples we submitted. The barrels

used in these trials all tested positive for Brettanomyces prior to treatment. Following our patent pending process, the ETS Scorpions analysis did not detect any live Brettanomyces in the treated barrel samples. The implications this has for the wine industry are enormous.

We look forward to disclosing the process and why it works as well as discreetly discussing any options this may present to you.
