Lower alcohol (Lifestyle) beverages
BevZero is proud to have been instrumental in the development and launch of the first lifestyle wines launched in the USA and UK and continues to work closely with wine producers launching new product in the growing category of lifestyle wines globally.
Alcohol Adjustment – Reducing alcohol slightly as desired for product style preferences.
With BevZero’s unique technology, only 10% of the total wine blend needs to be processed for each degree of alcohol reduction, and 90% of that wine is recovered during processing. Also unique to BevZero, wine does not need to be filtered and can contain a high percentage of solids.
BevZero can dispose of unwanted/tainted wine and can accept transfers in bond from Bonded Wineries into our Distilled Spirits Plant.
BevZero offers crossflow filtration down to 0.45 micron to be used in conjunction of reverse osmosis processing or before bottling.
BevZero offers VA removal services alone, or in conjunction with alcohol adjustment. Our technology is the highest quality available and incredibly selective. Nothing other than the unwanted acetic acid is removed.
Flavor and Aroma Recovery
BevZero can concentrate and isolate the volatile flavor profile of liquids and slurries. The oak extract industry for wine additions relies heavily on Spinning Cone technology.
BevZero offers legal reductions of total FSO2 levels in wine down to 50ppm.
Stuck Fermentation Services
BevZero can reduce the alcohol content of the fermenting must to a level at which the winemaker can re-start the ferment.
Sweet Spotting Consultation
BevZero offers complimentary on-site tasting to determine the best final alcohol strength of the wine being adjusted (the Sweet Spot).
When sugar accumulation is low in the vineyard, BevZero can remove neutral water to 40 brix while allowing zero loss of flavors and aromas.
