As the world leader in alcohol and flavor management, ConeTech pioneered the application of the Spinning Cone Column as a method to remove alcohol from wine. Today ConeTech is the largest owner of this technology and is the exclusive distributor of a complementary patented technology and process (GoLo™).
With ConeTech’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 ConeTech, wine does not need to be filtered and can contain a high percentage of solids.
ConeTech offers a new solution for the elimination of undesirable characters in smoke tainted wines. ConeTech’s team of enologists and food scientists, has worked over the last year on an approach to the problem which differs in several key respects from all previously attempted solutions. The ConeTech team has developed and validated a new, unique, and proprietary method (patent pending) that drastically reduces, or eliminates completely, the volatile components that are responsible for the organoleptic deficiencies of smoke tainted wines. The process not only greatly improves smoke tainted wines but does so while protecting a wine’s most delicate aromatic compounds. Learn more.
