Accuvin, LLC was born during the crush of 1999 when its founder, Mike Miller, prepared to bring in the first harvest in his new Cabernet Sauvignon hillside vineyard. Mike looked for tests similar to the tests he had been manufacturing the last 30 years for the medical field: easy, accurate, inexpensive tests that did not require laboratory equipment or training. When he could not find any, he decided to make them.
A world-wide survey brought a huge response confirming his ideas that such tests would be welcome. Survey answers along with talks with winemakers and vineyard managers as well as reading texts, periodicals, and manuals gave an idea of which tests were most desired and at what levels.
Removing the red color interferences so all tests could be quickly done without any preparation to the sample or test was accomplished the first year as well.
Requests for other tests led to the application of our technology to food and beverage harvesting and manufacturing as well.
Accuvin, LLC has 2 goals: to provide quick, accurate, and inexpensive chemistry tests for the wine and food industries and to provide information necessary to use these results to optimize quality output.
