As many of you know, Winemaker Magazine (WMM) is a great source of information and techniques for the serious home winemaker. This weekend many of us planned to attend the annual WMM Conference that was to be held in San Luis Obispo amid one of our favorite wine regions, the California Central Coast. In the interest of public health and safety, the meeting has been postponed. As of this writing, it is to be held next year May 20-23 in the same location. So we’re looking forward to that!
The Vinmetrica Team would have been at the WMM Conference to share information about our products and to learn more about your needs. We can’t all meet this year, but we can provide the same discount codes for a brief time as we do every year at the conference!

Measuring sulfites (SO2)
Vinmetrica got its start with the original SC-100 for measuring free and total SO2. Now we make the SC-100A; and our most popular product, the SC-300, includes ability to measure pH and TA, (and a few other things.) If you really want to step up your testing, we would suggest the SC-300 Pro Kit which gives you all the accuracy and reliability of the SC-300 mentioned above with some added laboratory equipment to help speed up your testing and make it easier for you.
We recently put up information comparing the Vinmetrica SO2 test to other methods in terms of speed and accuracy.
Measuring pH and TA
As mentioned above, our most popular product is the SC-300 because it gives you both SO2 and pH/TA (acidity) results. We also make the SC-200 for pH/TA only. Both are cost-effective devices for making pH and TA measurements.
Here’s some recent information on pH, TA, and the Vinmetrica devices…
