Mathematics and oenology

exploring an unlikely pairing

Lucio Cadeddu, Alessandra Cauli, Stefano De Marchi

pp. 1-31

The aim of this chapter is to discuss some applications of mathematics: in oenology and in food and wine pairing. We introduce and study some partial differential equations for the correct definition of a wine cellar and to the chemical processes involved in wine aging. Secondly, we present a mathematical method and some algorithmic issues for analyzing the process of food and wine pairing done by sommeliers.
