Vine responses to two irrigation systems in the region of Vinhos Verdes


In this work we try to know the influence of two irrigation systems (Drip and Micro – jet ) with the same levels of water applied in an experimental vineyard in the region of Felgueiras.
At present we must say that there are not significant differences between the modalities in 1996, when we refer the yield and the pruning weight by vine. In 1998, we modified slightly the trial because there were troubles with some vines of one treatment. In 1999, we verified large significant differences among the modalities relatively to the pruning weight by vine but there were not significant differences at the yield/vine.
At the moment we do not have enough results about the relations quality of wine and amounts of water applied to the soil and their form of administration. So, we cannot conclude definitively about these two systems of irrigation and their levels of water applied. However, we can say that the treatment «Drip 100%Etm» did not show good results up to now.

Significance of factors making Riesling an iconic grape variety

Riesling is the iconic grape variety of Germany and accounts for 23% of the German viticulture acreage, which comprises 45% of the worldwide Riesling plantings. Riesling wines offer a wide array of styles from crisp sparkling wines to highly concentrated and sweet Trockenbeerenauslese or Icewines.

Winemaking techniques and wine tasting methods at the end of the Middle Ages
