AOC valorization of terroir nuances at plot scale in Burgundy

In the highly competitive global wine market, Burgundy has a long-established reputation to maintain. The vine and wine sector in Burgundy is based on a five-level ranking of AOC (Appellation d’Origine Contrôlée) wines and of the plots where the grapes are grown.

Phenolic characterization of four different red varieties with “Caíño” denomination cultivated in Northwestern Spain

In this work, these four red varieties were characterized in terms of phenolic composition. Thus, the anthocyanin accumulation and the extractability evolution during ripening were compared.

Effect of potential crop on vine water constraint

It is important to quantify the effect of potential crop on vine water constraint in order to adapt vine-growing consulting and vine management to the Mediterranean climate conditions

High and extreme high temperature effects on shiraz berry composition 

Climate change is leading to a rise in average temperature and in the frequency and severity of heatwaves, and is already significantly disturbing grapevine phenology and berry composition. With the evolution of the weather of Australian grape growing regions that are already warm and hot, flavonoids, for which biosynthesis depends on bunch microclimate, are expected to be impacted. These compounds include anthocyanins and tannins which contribute substantially to grape and wine quality. The goals of this project were to determine if berry tannin accumulation is sensitive to high temperature and to enhance knowledge on upper temperature limits for viable wine production, in turn informing critical timing for mitigation strategies.

Toward an automatic way to identify red blotch infected vines from hyperspectral images acquired in the field

Vineyards are affected by different virus diseases, which can lower yield and affect the quality of grapes. Grapevine red blotch disease is one of them, and no curative solution exists. Once infected, a vine must be removed and replaced with a virus-free vine (aka roguing). Screening vineyards to look for symptoms can be time-consuming and needs well-trained experts. To improve this process, we conducted an experiment identifying infected vines using a hyperspectral camera in the field.
