We spent hours measuring pH and titratable acidity to determine wine acidity. We analyzed enzymatic levels with a spectrophotometer, and there were weeks spent in the microbiology lab culturing yeast and bacteria.

Besides being an oenologist, Franjus-Adenis is also a journalist and a former winemaker in the Languedoc-Roussillon Corbières wine region.
