Since the Estación Enológica de Haro (EEH) was founded in 1892, the EEH has been dedicated to the study of wine and viticulture, and is proud to serve as the official laboratory of the Government of La Rioja (Servicio de Investigación Agraria y Sanidad Vegetal), and to provide a point of reference for viticulture and winemaking in Spain with its work. In 2015 Bruker Wine-Profiling™ was acquired and this new technique went some way to revolutionising wine analysis through origin and varietal certification. The combination of this technique with chemometrics opens up a new world in wine traceability and authentication, making this equipment stand out above any method previously used in the wine industry. The versatility of this technique and of this equipment makes it possible to adapt the analysis to the specific needs of the client, being able to be used for self-monitoring, fraud detection, or improvement of the winemaking process, among other purposes.
