Learning outcomes of the course unit:
Course Chemistry and microbiology of wine is focused on a specific area of biotechnology - oenology. Students learn about the composition of grape must and wine, basic technological processes of grape wines, microorganisms associated with viticulture, biochemical and physico-chemical processes during fermentation, wine making and aging. Part of the course is also legislation in the form of categorizing of wines and of the Slovak viticulture law.
Course contents:
Course is successfully completed by the oral examination; the student has to learn following study areas.
