Arsenic And California Wine: Do You Need To Worry?

If you’re drinking 2 L of wine a day, you’ve got bigger problems than just the arsenic levels in your wine. (For one, you liver likely won’t last long enough for you to develop cancer. And, a daily drinker of that much would certainly qualify as an alcoholic.)

Mass Spectrometric and Enzymatic Evidence Confirm the Existence of Anthocyanidin 3,5-O-Diglucosides in Cabernet Sauvignon (Vitis vinifera L.) Grape Berries.

It has been widely accepted that anthocyanidin 3,5-O-diglucosides do not exist in Vitis vinifera L. Cabernet Sauvignon (CS) berries. However, our anthocyanin analyses using HPLC-ESI-MS/MS detected the existence of a low level of anthocyanidin 3,5-O-diglucosides in the Cabernet Sauvignon grape berries grown in China. The authenticity of these samples was confirmed with microsatellite markers. The existence of anthocyanidin 3,5-O-diglucoside was further verified by the enzymatic evidence for the first time. Four putative 5-O-glucosyltransferase (5GT) genes were isolated from the Cabernet Sauvignon berries. The enzymatic analysis showed that a recombinant protein

Valley wine producers dispute arsenic claim

FRESNO, Calif. (KFSN) – Valley wine producers said there is no need to question the safety of a glass of California wine. A class action lawsuit filed in Los Angeles Superior Court claimed high levels of arsenic were found in some samples of low cost wine. 28 California wineries and 83 wines were named in the lawsuit – including popular labels like Sutter Home, Beringer and Charles Shaw. Peterangelo Vallis of the San Joaquin Valley Winegrowers Association said there was no need to throw out any bottles.

Rapid and label-free detection of egg allergen traces in wines by surface plasmon resonance biosensor.

The development of a surface plasmon resonance (SPR)-based biosensor tailored to the fast detection of egg-related fining allergens in wines is herein described. Ovalbumin (OVA) was chosen as the target protein to be monitored due to its highest abundance in the egg white powder, a typical fining agent used by the winery industry to promotewine clarification. A direct assay was designed, basing on the use of polyclonal anti-OVA antibody as bio-specific receptor. With the aim of optimizing the assay conditions, different parameters able to influence the final biosensor response were

Buenos Aires wine sector under pressure

Buenos Aires: Producers point to lack of competitiveness, gov’t says devaluation isn’t the answer. Lower consumption, fewer exports, higher production costs and an excess supply have led the wine sector to go through a harsh period in the last year, depriving producers of reasons to fill their glasses for a celebratory toast. While the government claims devaluation isn’t the answer and has unveiled a set of measures to aid producers, the sector is sounding the alarm over a steep crisis and a loss of competitiveness. Wine sales dropped 7.3 percent

Detecting Allergens Onsite

Winemakers routinely use a range of ingredients and processing aids during production that can be potentially allergenic including casein, milk, egg, fish, and shellfish. These ingredients, where present in detectable amounts, must be declared on product labelling. In particular, wine that is exported to places such as the EU, must declare the presence of egg and milk if over the detectable level. Allergen test kits, distributed in Australia by AMSL, are now available so you can perform your own testing onsite to test for the presence of allergens in finished
