Characterization of vineyard sites for quality wine production using meteorological, soil chemical and physical data

Abstract

The quality of grapevines measured by yield and must density in the northern part of Europe -conditions can be characterized as a type of “cool climate” – vary strongly from year to year and from one production site to another, i.e. différences in must densities can range from 30 to 50 °Oe. An explanation may be changes of weather conditions during critical developmental stages of the grapevines (2, 3, 5). These can be categorized as “macro climatic” influences. According to them different grape growing areas can be discriminated ; nothern viticultural areas show a distinct yearly variation in must quality than the southern ones. The second scaling deals with spatial and timely variability in a growing region, i.e. topography, soil type and climate. The influences of both categories on must quality will be described subsequently.

Projected impacts of climate change on viticulture over France wine-regions using downscalled CMIP6 multi-model data

Winegrape is a crop for which the quality and the identity of the final product depends strongly on the
climatic conditions of the year. By impacting production systems and the way in which wines are
developed, climate change represents a major challenge for the wine industry (Ollat et al., 2021).

Interaction between the enzymes of central carbon metabolism and anthocyanin biosynthesis during grape berry development

Primary and secondary metabolites are major components of grape quality and wine typicity. Their accumulation is interconnected through a complex metabolic network, which is still not well understood. This study aims to investigate how the enzymes of central carbon metabolism interact with anthocyanin biosynthesis during grape berry development: does the accumulation of anthocyanins, which represents a non-negligible diversion of carbon metabolic fluxes, require reprogramming of central enzymes or is it controlled downstream of central metabolism? To this end, 23 enzymes involved in central carbon metabolism pathways have been analyzed in the berries of 3 grape cultivars, which have close genetic background but distinct temporal dynamics of anthocyanin accumulation.

DOES LIGNIN AN ACCEPTABLE MARKER OF GRAPESEED MATURATION AND QUALITY?

Usually the winemaker consider polyphenols from the grape berry as an actor of the wine quality. There are frequently consider as a marker of grape maturity. It is commonly known that winemaker consider tannins and anthocyanins as main polyphenol actors for winemaking practices and wine quality. Here we will focus on the characterisation of lignins in grape seeds. Previous studies suggest that the seed is lignified [1], which could explain the change in colour of the seed when it reaches maturity and thus provide a reliable indicator for describing the maturity stage in the seed.
