Extraction of anthocyanins from wine grape pomace (grape variety "Vranec") with water containing 0.05-0.5% SO2 was investigated. A multistage extraction was performed using minimal pomace to solvent mass ratio 1:3 that enabled soaking of pomace, as well as a mass ratio 1:5. Content of anthocyanins and ballast-tannins and nitrogen compounds, were determined in the extracts. The degree of extract purity was estimated by so called quality indicator (QI) value. It indicates the difference between the anthocyanin yield and the average ballast yield. The extracts purity increases as SO2 concentration increases. The extracts obtained with mass ratio 1:5 were purer.
