ETS & Enartis/Vinquiry Laboratories, to Merge

NEWS RELEASE, July 6, 2020


St. Helena, CA — The Burns (ETS Laboratories) and Nulli (Enartis) families are happy to announce an agreement combining their analytical service offerings.


Enartis will continue to support wineries worldwide with enological products and technical support, while winemakers who previously worked with Vinquiry for analysis will have access to the broad range of analytical capabilities and expertise that ETS Laboratories has provided over the past 42 years. This transition will occur as of July 24, 2020.


Said Piero Nulli, Esseco Group President and principal shareholder: “After 11 years of direct presence in North America, Enartis is entrusting its analytical services business to a very capable partner. Enartis now wishes to concentrate its resources on its core business of oenological products, further strengthening its position of leadership and innovation.”


“We are happy to be able to work with the Nulli family who share our family business values, as we take this step forward continuing the ETS tradition of analytical innovation and excellence.” said ETS Laboratories Co-Founder Marjorie Burns


The wine industry has shown remarkable resilience during the recent turbulent years. Both Enartis and ETS have been stabilizing forces for the industry through this period, and this agreement is evidence of the continued pledge from both companies to do what is right for the success of the entire alcoholic beverage industry. The Burns and Nulli families wish to ensure that Enartis and ETS, along with our mutual industry clients and partners, will continue to flourish sustainably far into the future.


“We share Enartis’ dedication to supporting the wine and beverage industries, and look forward to better serving our mutual clients by focusing on each company’s core strengths”, said ETS Laboratories President and Technical Director Gordon Burns.


“The US market remains one of the top global priorities for Enartis, which has recently launched a proprietary and revolutionary technology for wine stabilization,” said Francesco Nulli, Esseco Group CEO and shareholder.
