Wine is a complex matrix that contains many classes of compounds such us sugars, alcohols, acids, flavonoids (tannins), non-flavonoids, minerals, and proteins, among others. Beyond the mastery of the winemaker and winemaking techniques, including aging conditions, wine is the expression of various factors related to the provenance area, type of grape variety, terroir (soil type and climate), and grape-ripening process. All these features give its uniqueness and value.
The authenticity and typicality of wine are basic attributes that guarantee its quality. The terms are closely related but not identical: authenticity refers to the origin—variety and vineyard—while typicality refers to wine characteristics imprinted by the variety, “terroir”, and technology of production.
This Special Issue aims to provide an insight on wine chemistry, from grapes to wine, covering both winemaking technological aspects, and wine aging and storage. Submissions that explore the chemical profile and sensory properties of wines, particularly chemical markers for specific winemaking practices and assessment of wine traceability, are encouraged. Novel approaches in terms of not only oenological practices and analytical methodologies for identifying compounds of interest (e.g., polyphenols profile, organic acids, minerals, and trace and rare earth elements) as quality and authenticity indicators but also valorization of by-products and waste from vinification processes are also welcome.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All submissions that pass pre-check are peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Applied Sciences is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 2400 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
