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.

The typicality of a wine, as well as its aromatic identity, are attributes that are highly sought after and requested by the current market. It is therefore of considerable technological interest to investigate the aromatic aspects of specific wines and to identify the odorous substances involved.In this thesis work, the characterization of the aromatic composition of Prosecco wines available on the market with a price range between 7 and 13 euros was carried out. These wines came from three different areas of origin such as Valdobbiadene, Asolo and Treviso.

Mannoprotein extracts from wine lees: characterization and impact on wine properties

This study aims at exploiting an undervalued winemaking by-product, wine yeast lees, by developing efficient and food-grade methods for the extraction of yeast glycoproteins. These extracts were then supplemented to wine and their impact on wine properties assessed.

Polyphenols in kombucha: impact of infusion time on extraction and investigation of their behavior during “fermentation”

Kombucha is a non-alcoholic beverage made of sugared tea that is transformed by a symbiotic consortium of yeasts and bacteria. Polyphenols are expected to be responsible of several health benefits attributed to kombucha consumption, among other metabolites. This study investigated the impact of tea infusion time and of kombucha “fermentation”, on total phenolic content,

The terroir of winter hardiness: a three year investigation of spatial variation in winter hardiness, water status, yield, and berry composition of riesling in the niagara region using geomatic technologies

Grapevine winter hardiness is a key factor in vineyard success in many cool climate wine regions. Winter hardiness may be governed by several factors in addition to extreme weather conditions – e.g. soil factors (texture, chemical composition, moisture, drainage), vine water status, and yield– that are unique to each site.
