MOSTI MONDIALE started out as a Fresh Grape Must importer and distributor in 1989. Like most family businesses, we started as a small operation driven by customer service and high-quality products. MOSTI MONDIALE has since been a pioneer in the industry; we were the first to offer 100% Fresh Grape Must all year round. Now, fresh must is incorporated in every single one of our products.
What is Fresh Grape Must?
Fresh Grape Must is essentially the juice that is extracted from wine grapes. It retains a varietal’s main qualities, characteristics and transfers them into the wine.
MOSTI MONDIALE has always been committed to providing the winemaking industry with products made from the highest quality fresh musts.
Reducing Sulphites in Your Craft Wine
One of the many unique benefits of crafting your wine, is that you can customize the wine to your needs – and if reducing the sulphite levels is one of those needs, you’re in luck! If crafting in store, be sure to discuss this with your craft wine retailer and they will assist you with this. If you are crafting at home, you can opt to not add any sulphites to your wine to reduce their level. However, there will still be some present in the final product (10ppm), as it is a natural by-product of fermentation. If you are adding sulphites via the add pack, as per our instruction sheets then the final product will have between 35-50ppm. Ensuring that everything is properly sanitized when crafting your wine and using longer corks to minimize oxidation will help ensure the quality of your wine.
Sulphites in Wine
Sulphur dioxide has been used in winemaking for thousands of years, ever since the ancient Romans discovered that it would keep their wine from turning into vinegar. To this day sulphites play an important role in preventing oxidization and maintaining a wine’s freshness. They also help in the extraction of pigments in wine, making red wines “redder.”
The sulphite level in wine is measured in “ppm”, or parts per million. In Canada and the United States, conventionally made wines are permitted to contain up to 350ppm of sulphites, and in the European Union wine may contain up to 210 ppm sulphites. The current CFIA labelling requirements for Alcoholic Beverages requires any wine that contains more than 10 ppm (parts per million) sulphite to be labeled with, “Contains sulphites.”
Storing & Consuming Your Sulphite-Reduced Craft Wine
Craft wines that have been crated without the sulphite add pack should be consumer when they are young, as they are not as protected against bacterial infection and oxidation. We would recommend drinking them within 2 weeks to a maximum of 6 months from their production date. They should be stored in a temperature-controlled environment (less than 16°C/60°F) out of direct light.
Contrary to popular belief, we do not recommend storing your wine in a refrigerator long-term unless it is set to a “cellar” temperature. As when wine is stored at lower temperatures, it could cause a precipitation of tartaric crystals.
When serving the wine, minimizing its contact with oxygen is best practice. As a result, we don’t recommend decantering it – especially for grape varieties that are prone to oxidation, like Grenache-based wines.
Note: Most retailers will waive their 100% satisfaction guarantee if you opt to omit using the sulphites add pack.
Are Sulphites in Wine Bad?
Not for most people. There are however some notable exceptions to this rule. About 5-10% of people with asthma have severe sulphite sensitivity. Sulfur is also on the rise as a concern among the populous as a cause of health problems (from migraines to body swelling), because of its prevalence in processed foods.
