“Zonation”: interpretation and estimation of “Great zonation” (GZ) following the base methodology of “GRANDE FILIERA” (GF) (Great chain)

Abstract

[English version below]

Dans des travaux précédents sur le zonage, on a traité de la « Grande Filière », du « terroir », du « territoire », de la «″Terra »″ (« Terre »”), des « Petits zonages ou sub-zonages », du « Grand Zonage », de la qualité (nous en avons classifié plus de quatre-vingt-dix), des « Grands Objectifs » (GO) de l’activité vitivinicole et des moyens utilisés pour les atteindre. Dans le « GRAND ZONAGE » (GZ) nous avons précisé que pour zoner, nous partons des aspects économiques, sociaux et existentiels que représentent du bas vers le haut en filière les « GRANDS OBJECTIFS » (GO) de l’activité vitinicole et donc du zonage et non pas des aspects « techniques » tels que par exemple le sol, le climat, le modèle de vignoble et sa gestion, etc., qui représentent les « MOYENS » pour atteindre les grands objectifs cités ci-dessus (Cargnello G. 1995, 1997, 1999a-b-c-d, 200a-b et 2003a-c-d). Il faut donc souligner que les « grands objectifs » ne doivent pas être confondus, comme c’est souvent le cas dans notre secteur, avec les moyens utilisés pour atteindre ces objectifs. « Zoner » (« Grand Zonage ») en incluant aussi la lecture et l’évaluation de ce zonage, objet de ce travail, en suivant la méthodologie de base de la « GRANDE FILIERE » (GF) signifie donc, entre autre, opérer aussi bien dans la « globalité », de façon équo soutenable solidaire au niveau temps, économique et social et réalistiquement « qualitatif », aussi bien en syntonie (au mieux) avec les 54 descripteurs d’ordre technique économique social existentiel prévus dans la « Grande Filière ».
On exposera dans ce travail la lecture et l’évaluation du zonage d’après ce qui a été exposé ci-dessus. Lecture et évaluation qui à la suite des recherches conduites à l’étranger aussi a suscité un vif intérêt et nous a encouragé à intensifier ces recherches.

In previous papers on zonation we investigated: so called “GRANDE FILIERA” (GF) (“Great chain”), “terroir”, “Terra”, “Small zonations or sub-zonations”, “Great zonation”, qualities (we have classified more than ninety), economy of qualities, as well as “GREAT OBJECTIVES” (GO) of vitivinicultural activity and means utilised for its achievement.
In “GREAT ZONATION” (GZ) we have specified that in order to zonate, it is necessary to start from economic, social and existential aspects which in filiera from below to above represent “GREAT OBJECTIVES” (GO) also of vitivinicultural activity and thus of zonation, and not from “technical” aspects such as soil, climate, vineyard model and its management, etc. which represent “MEANS” for achievements of “great objectives” above mentioned (Cargnello G., 1995, 1997, 1999a-b-c-d-, 2000a-b and 2003a-c-d).
Must be therefore said again that “great objectives” shouldn’t be messed-up, as frequently happens in our branch, with means utilised for achievement of such objectives.
Consequently “Zonating” (“Great Zonation”) comprised between interpretation and estimation of zonation, following the base methodology of “Great Chain” means, among other things, to operate in “globality” and in sustainable equal mode on tempistic, economic-social and realistically “qualitative” level, also in harmony (the best) with listed descriptors.
In the present paper, zonation interpretation and estimation will be treated as explained above. Type of interpretation and estimation that after researches conducted by foreign researches have risen in importance and have stimulated us to intensify our investigations in that sense.

Physiological and growth reaction of Shiraz/101-14 Mgt to row orientation and soil water status

Advanced knowledge on grapevine row orientation is required to improve establishment, management and outcomes of vineyards on terroirs with different environmental conditions (climate, soil, topography) and in view of a future change to more extreme climatic conditions. The purpose of this study was to determine the combined effect of row orientation, plant water status and ripeness level on the physiological and viticultural reaction of Shiraz/101-14 Mgt.

Effects of mechanical leafing and deficit irrigation on Cabernet Sauvignon grown in warm climate of California

San Joaquin Valley accounts for 40% of wine grape acreage and produces 70% of wine grape in California. Fruit quality is one of most important factors which impact the economical sustainability of farming wine grapes in this region. Due to the recent drought and expected labor cost increase, the wine industry is thrilled to understand how to improve fruit quality while maintaining the yield with less water and labor input. The present study aims to study the interactive effects of mechanical leafing and deficit irrigation on yield and berry compositions of Cabernet Sauvignon grown in warm climate of California.

The effects of cane girdling on berry texture properties and the concentration of some aroma compounds in three table grape cultivars

The marketability of the table grapes is highly influenced by the consumer demand; therefore the market value of the table grapes is mainly characterized by its berry size, colour, taste and texture. Girdling could cause accumulation of several components in plants above the ringing of the phloem including clusters and resulting improved maturity. The aim of the experiments was to examine the effect of girdling on berry texture characteristics and aroma concentration.

Application of a fluorescence-based method to evaluate the ripening process and quality of Pinot Blanc grape

The chemical composition of grape berries at harvest is one of the most important factors that should be considered to produce high quality wines. Among the different chemical classes which characterize the grape juice, the polyphenolic compound, such as flavonoids, contribute to the final taste and color of wines. Recently, an innovative non-destructive method, based on chlorophyll fluorescence, was developed to estimate the phenolic maturity of red grape varieties through the evaluation of anthocyanins accumulated in the berry skin. To date, only few data are available about the application of this method on white grape varieties.

Different yield regulation strategies in semi-minimal-pruned hedge (SMPH) and impact on bunch architecture

Yields in the novel viticulture training system Semi-Minimal-Pruned Hedge (SMPH) are generally higher compared to the traditional Vertical Shoot Positioning (VSP). Excessive yields have a negative impact on the vine and wine quality, which can result in substantial losses in yield in subsequent vintages (alternate bearing) or penalties in fruit quality. Therefore yield regulation is essential. The bunch architecture in SMPH differs from VSP. Generally there is a higher amount but smaller bunches with lower single berry weights in SMPH compared to VSP.
