Napa: May 10, 2017 – Bernard Gillery, Founder and Chairman of Eurodia Industrie of France, and one of the originators in the development of the Electrodialysis processes for Tartrate Stabilization, will be in Napa this week for the first OENODIA GLOBAL CONFERENCE. OENODIA, the Eurodia wine division which has a branch office in Napa, was created as a result of the development of an innovative solution for the Tartaric Stabilization of wine along with Monsieur Gillery’s interest in developing a range of exclusive and highly effective solutions tailored to the winemaking industry. OENODIA and its eco-processes, which guarantee quality treatments without any additives; Tartaric Stabilization by Electrodialysis, as well as membrane-based pH and alcohol adjustment, now operate in 12 countries across 5 continents.
Partners from across the globe will join Monsieur Gillery in Napa next week to discuss the future of OENODIA, the company’s continued growth, their ongoing commitment to Research & Development and the new technologies they have in the pipeline.
