Valuation of the fields viti-vinicoles by the landscapes


[English version below]

La prise en compte des paysages viticoles dans le développement durable ou l’aménagement du territoire est un thème non négligeable pour la valorisation de la filière viti-vinicole à l’échelle d’une exploitation ou d’une A.O.C. ITV France, Institut Technique de la Vigne et du Vin, a développé une thématique concernant la valorisation et la protection des paysages viticoles. La création d’une exposition itinérante ayant pour but de sensibiliser les professionnels et de leur faire prendre conscience des différents enjeux des paysages vis-à-vis de l’image et de la perception du grand public. Des études régionales des zones viticoles sont en cours de réalisation et s’appuient sur une méthodologie validée par un groupe national constitué de responsables de syndicats viticoles, des organismes de développement régionaux, des structures de recherche. Une méthodologie pour la réalisation de ces études est en cours de validation au sein de ce groupe.

Taking the wine landscapes into consideration in the durable development or in the regional development is not inconsiderable subject of the valuation of the viti-wine producing field in exploitation scale or an AOC. ITV France, Technical Institute of the Vineyard and Wine, developed a theme concerning the valuation and the protection of the wine landscapes. The creation an itinerant exposition aiming at making sensitive the professionals and at making them become aware of various stakes in the landscapes towards image and the perception of the general public. Regional studies of the wine zones are in progress and research structures press on a methodology validated by a national group constituted by responsible for wine syndicates, for regional bodies of development. A methodology for the realization of these studies is in progress of validation within this group.

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.
