Diversity of arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi on grapevine roots across an edaphoclimatic gradient

Abstract

Challenges associated with climate change, such as soil erosion and drought, have impacted viticulture across wine regions globally in recent decades. As winegrowers struggle to maintain yield and quality standards under these conditions, methods to adapt to and mitigate the impacts of climate change have become more prevalent. One potential mitigation strategy is to enhance symbiotic interaction of grapevine roots with arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi (AMF). The symbiotic association between AMF and grapevine roots can increase nutrient availability, soil health, and water use efficiency by improving soil aggregation, aeration, and permeability, while limiting soil organic matterdegradation. However, little is known whether the benefits of AMF colonization and diversity may be altered by soil type, rootstalk, and scion. The goal of this research is to survey 12 vineyards across an edaphoclimatic gradientextending from the Willamette Valley (Oregon) to Santa Maria (Central California) to identify AMF colonizing communities. This study aims to gain an understanding of how the AMF abundance and diversity are influenced by different soil types, rootstocks, and scions. The AMF communities and diversity were evaluated by amplifying mycorrhizal DNA in grapevine roots. Fungal community abundance was determined by clearing and staining grapevine roots with trypan blue. We hypothesized that AMF diversity and abundance vary across the edaphoclimatic gradient with greater AMF abundance and diversity occurring in California, which whose soil properties (i.e., texture, pH, and plant-available nutrient concentrations) promote grapevine root symbiosis. This research provides valuable insight into AMF communities across diverse wine-growing regions to improve regenerative agriculture management in vineyards. Future research will focus on assessing the influence of regenerative agriculture management practice on AMF colonization and diversity in grapevines.

Impact of some agronomic practices on grape skins anthocyanin content

Wine colour is the first quality characteristic to be assessed, especially regarding red wines. Anthocyanins are very well known to be the main responsible compounds for red wine colour. Red cultivars can synthesize and accumulate anthocyanins in berry skin to express their colour. However, anthocyanin accumulation is often influenced by a series of factors, such as genetic regulation, phytohormones, environmental conditions and viticultural management.

Spain c Department of Agro-Industry and Enology, Faculty of Agronomical Sciences, University of Chile, Post Office Box 1004, Santa Rosa 11315, La Pintana, Santiago, Chile País grape has been estimated to arrive to Chile almost 500 years ago, being the first strain grown in this country. Traditionally, this grape has been used to mix with other varieties, to produce poor quality wines, but today is beginning to be used in the production of high quality wines. However, very little is known about the chemical characteristics of this variety.

Ageing of Sauvignon Blanc white wines with Specific Inactivated Dry Yeasts: Effect on physical and chemical characteristics

The ageing of white wines on lees is used in order to release higher amounts of polysaccharides by the autolytic processes in order to obtain higher-quality wines. However, this technique is too slow, because the temperature and pH conditions are not the most suitable for this process. In addition, it can also involve certain disadvantages such as a greater demand on winery resources, a longer period of wine storage, the appearance of reduction notes and some microbiological alterations.

Effect of ageing with Specific Inactivated Dry Yeasts on the volatile composition of Sauvignon Blanc and Carménère wines

Chile y Compañía Limitada, Rosario Norte 407, piso 6, Las Condes, Santiago, Chile The wine is a complex matrix made up of several compounds which can interact among themselves throughout the wine ageing process, thereby modifying their sensorial characteristics. It is well known that during ageing of wines on lees, polysaccharides (mainly mannoproteins) can be released and can interact with the aromatic fraction modifying its volatility.

New molecular evidence of wine yeast-bacteria interaction unraveled by untargeted metabolomic profiling

Bacterial malolactic fermentation (MLF) has a considerable impact on wine quality. The yeast strain used for primary fermentation can consistently stimulate (MLF+ phenotype) or inhibit (MLF- phenotype) malolactic bacteria and the MLF process as a function of numerous winemaking practices, but the molecular evidence behind still remains a mystery. In this study, such evidence was elucidated by the direct comparison of extracellular metabolic profiles of MLF+ and MLF- yeast phenotypes. Untargeted metabolomics combining ultrahigh-resolution FT-ICR-MS analysis, powerful machine learning methods and a comprehensive wine metabolite database, discovered around 800 putative biomarkers and 2500 unknown masses involved in phenotypic distinction.
