Application of zoning for wine production, digitalisation and traceability

Abstract

Depuis la création des outils d’amélioration et de suivi de la qualité, le CREDO développe et réalise des zonages de potentialités viticoles.
Le rendu des travaux est synthétisé sur des cartes et constitue une base documentaire.
Certaines communes de grande qualité, dans le souci d’approfondir ces travaux, ont chargé, de 1988 à 1992, le CREDO et le BRGM de réaliser ces études. Les travaux entrepris furent affinés par la réalisation de campagnes d’ouverture de fosses pédologiques et une réflexion sur la méthodologie et la nomenclature en relation avec les syndicats viticoles.
En 2001, le CREDO, à la demande d’une commune et d’une cave, a informatisé ces travaux.
La numérisation de 1797 parcelles réparties sur les 6 communes de Vinsobres, Mirabel, Nyons, Piégon, Valréas et Venterol en utilisant un Système d’Information Géographique et un logiciel de gestion des données a conduit à la mise en œuvre de différentes étapes dont la méthodologie est la suivante :
– Scannérisation des planches cadastrales
– Géoréférencement des plans par rapport aux coordonnées Lambert
– Création de la base de donnée (Communes, Parcelles, Superficie, etc.)
– Numérisation du parcellaire
– Liaison du SIG et de la base de données
– Correction en partenariat avec les professionnels
– Impression des plans au format A4, A3 ou A0.
Ce travail permet de réaliser des cartes thématiques en fonction des besoins de l’utilisateur. Par exemple, le CREDO a réalisé des cartes d’âge des vignes pour gérer la restructuration, des cartes de terroirs d’un cépage pour visualiser différentes nuances au sein d’une unité variétale afin d’élaborer une cuvée Sélection Terroir.
Ainsi les producteurs seront en mesure de gérer au mieux les caractéristiques des raisins entrant dans leurs chais et optimiser leur vinification.
Intérêt de l’étude :
– Disposer d’une base de données géoréférencées, facilitant une mise à jour régulière et fournissant des informations parfaitement compatibles avec les logiciels de traçabilité.
– Permettre une visualisation graphique d’un parcellaire, avec toutes les implications de gestion et de marketing que cela implique.
– Optimisation des apports et meilleure gestion de l’élaboration de cuvées.
– Traçabilité des produits et caractérisation des apports.
– Création de fichiers base de données utilisables par les producteurs à partir des logiciels du commerce.

Since the creation of tools for improving and monitoring quality, the CREDO has been developing and establishing zoning for potential wine producing areas.
The result of the work is summarized on maps and constitutes a documentary basis.
Between 1988 and 1992, certain communes with very high quality have requested the CREDO and the BRGM to carry out these studies with a view to going into further detail in this work. The work done was improved by the carrying out of campaigns to open pedological ditches and deliberations on the methodology and classification terms in conjunction with wine producing associations.
In 2001, the CREDO computerized this work at the request of one commune and one wine producing cellar.
The digitalization of 1797 sections of land spread over the 6 communes of Vinsobres, Mirabel, Nyons, Piégon, Valréas and Venterol using a Geographic Information System and a software program for data management has led to the implementation of various stages whose methodology is as follows:
– Land registry sheets have been scanned
– Drawings have been referenced geographically with relation to the Lambert co-ordinates
– The creation of the data base (Communes, Sections of Land, Area, etc.)
– Digitalisation of the sections of land
– Link between the GIS and the data base
– Correction in partnership with the professionals
– The printing of drawings in A4, A3 or A0 format
– This work has enabled theme maps to be produced depending on the user’s needs. For example, the CREDO has produced maps of the ages of vines in order to manage restructuring and maps of the territories of the grape varieties in order to view various sub­sections within a variety as a whole in order to establish a Cuvée Sélection Terroir.
In this way, producers can optimise the management of the characteristics of the grapes entering their wine- making facilities and their vinification.
Usefulness of the study:
– To dispose of a data base that is referenced geographically, thus making it easier to update it regularly and supplying information that is perfectly compatible with traceability software.
– To enable graphie viewing of sections of land with all the value for management and marketing that that implies.
– The optimisation of contributions and irnproved management of the elaboration of wines.
– Traceability of the products and characterisation of the contributions.
– The creation of data base files that can be used by producers using commercial software.

Impact of environmental conditions in vscs production during wine fermentation by Saccharomyces cerevisiae

The aroma of wine is one of the most important determinants of quality as it strongly influences the consumer’s acceptance or rejection. Among the thousands of molecules comprising the wine aroma, sulfur-containing compounds can be considered as a “double-edged sword”: some of them, deriving from varietal precursors provide fruity pleasant aromas, while other ones, produced by yeast metabolism are related to “unpleasant” aromas
