NIR Technology in the Wine Industry (Viticulture) Webinar

February 17, 2016 - February 18, 2016

We are kicking off our 2016 ASD Webinar Series in February! Our 2016 webinar series will focus on one different near-infrared (NIR) application each month.

This February, our webinar focuses on the specific application of NIR technology and Viticulture. Viticulture (from the Latin word for vine) is the science, production, and study of grapes. It deals with the series of events that occur in the vineyard.

In this webinar you will learn:

  • How NIR technology can be used for continuous and non-destructive measurements on grape, wine products, and processes over time.
  • How NIR analysis can help identify grape characteristics and chemical properties of materials during the production of wine products.


Daniel Cozzolino, PhD, Assoc. Professor at Central Queensland University (CQU)

Daniel CozzolinoDr. Daniel Cozzolino is an Associate Professor at Central Queensland University (CQU). Daniel graduated from the Universidad de la Republica (Montevideo, Uruguay) as an Agricultural Engineer in 1989 and obtained his PhD from the University of Aberdeen (Aberdeen, Scotland) in 1998. His research career started in 1993 with the development of NIR applications for a wide range of agricultural products at the National Institute for Agricultural Research (INIA-Uruguay). In 2002, Daniel joined the Australian Wine Research Institute based in Adelaide, South Australia as a Senior Research Scientist. Here, Daniel was the Team leader of a group investigating applications of rapid methods (Visible, NIR, MIR, UV) in grapes and wines and focused his research in applications of spectroscopy and chemometrics in the wine industry. Daniel has published more than 200 articles in peer reviewed journals. In 2013, he received the Tomas Hirschfeld Award for his outstanding contributions to NIR spectroscopy.
