ETS will support future development of the global wine industry by continuing to ensure our industry leading position as the first, best, and, in many cases, only provider of valuable analytical services.
ETS conducts continuous development and evaluation of new analytical tools for our winery clients. Two full time PhD chemists / enologists are currently dedicated to developing these tools.
ETS enjoys close relationships with wine laboratories and Universities throughout the world. Collaboration with these partners provides ETS with a global view of wine industry problems and challenges while demonstrating our accuracy and reliability to the world wine markets.
ETS has expanded the industry's knowledge base by performing applied research projects for a number of client partners. ETS has worked with the California Wine Institute to satisfy U.S. Food and Drug Administration needs for data on ethyl carbamate levels in wines. Results have been instrumental in the formation of industry positions with regulatory bodies. ETS has conducted studies on behalf of the Cork Quality Council on TCA behavior in corks and wine. These findings have formed the basis for a cork monitoring procedure that is now being applied by primary suppliers in Europe, their U.S. agents, and many consumers of corks.
