MW Topic of the week - Sulfur in winemaking!

Hello MW students!

Sabrina Lueck, Sarah Bray, and I recently passed our year 1 exam after studying together for a spell. :)

We have decided to take our second year studies public and create a thread here in the hopes that others studying for their MW (or WSET) will join in!

We will present a new topic every Monday. You should feel free to post any thoughts or questions all week, and then we will post an explanation on Friday.

Sabrina will be covering science and winemaking, Sarah business and marketing, and I will handle viticulture and current events.

Sabrina will take the lead this week with the topic: SULFUR DIOXIDE IN WINEMAKING.

What wine properties affect sulfur dosages? What are the typical and/or legal ranges for wines around the world? How and when is it added? What effects does it have on wine?

Talk to you Friday!
