Scientific research for an «Ad Maiora 4.1C» application «A step back towards the future universally sustainable EME4.1C». A concrete example of forward-looking and revolutionary entrepreneurial choices in the vine and wine sector


1- In 1979 an enlightened and farsighted business owner in an area and in an activity unknown to him and in 120 hectares of land cultivated with corn and wheat expressed to one of us that he wanted to start a business in the wine sector. The first innovative “Vigna Dogarina Scientific Applicative Project” has become famous and harmoniously inserted in and with the “Territoir” of eastern Veneto in northeastern Italy. The revolutionary project allowed one of us: 1. to put into practice results of research related to the applied philosophy, vision, methodology of the “Great MetaEthic Chain 4.1C®” algorithm of the “Conegliano Campus 5.1C®” that considers all material, immaterial, spiritual, technical, economic, environmental, social, existential, relational, ethical, MetaEthical factors with basic indexing in a harmonious chain “ 4.1C®” and application “5.1C®”, 2. to implement: 2.1. land transformations and revolutionary land arrangements relating to: 2.1.1. to the landscape, to the image of the area, to the location of the company and the cellar, 2.1.2. access to the company, 2.1.3. to full mechanization, 2.1.4. the supply, distribution and economy of water resources, 2.1.5. plots designed for irrigation by infiltration, 3. training and pruning systems “Sylvoz mod. Cargnello” and not Bellussi and Sylvoz. classic expanded Veneto, 4. planting spacing extremely reduced for the area, 5. original poles, wires and tie rods in terms of height, shape and materials, 6. cultivars and clones particularly of sensory and economic-social quality, 7. the automatic mechanical planting of the vines next to the posts with a patented planter, 8. fast phytosanitary treatments with a patented operator, 9. the electronic control of irrigation, 10. the electronic filling of the tank for phytosanitary treatments, 11 . the integral mechanization of all cultivation operations, 12. an original grassing and management of the “leopard-spotted” turf, 13. an original non-management mechanical management of the foliage, 14. the application of the original technique of the “Poly Double Reasoned Maturation 5.1C” which allows to improve the quality of the grapes and to obtain in the same homogeneous plot more and different enochemical qualities of the grapes and its natural defense against botrytis, 15. training, information and communication activities of the highest level for entrepreneurs, students, technicians, workers. Therefore “Vigna Dogarina” has been visited by the most important and qualified scientists and technicians, also, internationally.

2- On this basis in 2016 “Ad maiora 4.1C®” “Wineries Viticulturists of Eastern Veneto s.a.c.” (Vi.V.O. Wineries s.a.c.) has taken “A step back towards the not indefinite but defined future EME4.1C®” (“Un passo indietro verso il futuro non indefinito ma definito EME4.1C®”-“A step back towards the future universally sustainable EME4.1C®) on “Vigna Dogarina” updating the existing wine production, communication and marketing model as well as the social aspect , environmental, existential, relational, ethical, “MetaEthical” 5.1C so that “Vigna Dogarina”: 2.1.is an example for the whole territory, and the indispensable and urgent “Ecological Transition Meta Verso Ethics 4.1C®”, 2.2. contributes to improve activities, image, communication and quality of Vi.V.O products,3. represents excellence in the communication of Vi.V.O italian top cooperative.

Physiological and growth reaction of Shiraz/101-14 Mgt to row orientation and soil water status

Advanced knowledge on grapevine row orientation is required to improve establishment, management and outcomes of vineyards on terroirs with different environmental conditions (climate, soil, topography) and in view of a future change to more extreme climatic conditions. The purpose of this study was to determine the combined effect of row orientation, plant water status and ripeness level on the physiological and viticultural reaction of Shiraz/101-14 Mgt.

Effects of mechanical leafing and deficit irrigation on Cabernet Sauvignon grown in warm climate of California

San Joaquin Valley accounts for 40% of wine grape acreage and produces 70% of wine grape in California. Fruit quality is one of most important factors which impact the economical sustainability of farming wine grapes in this region. Due to the recent drought and expected labor cost increase, the wine industry is thrilled to understand how to improve fruit quality while maintaining the yield with less water and labor input. The present study aims to study the interactive effects of mechanical leafing and deficit irrigation on yield and berry compositions of Cabernet Sauvignon grown in warm climate of California.

The effects of cane girdling on berry texture properties and the concentration of some aroma compounds in three table grape cultivars

The marketability of the table grapes is highly influenced by the consumer demand; therefore the market value of the table grapes is mainly characterized by its berry size, colour, taste and texture. Girdling could cause accumulation of several components in plants above the ringing of the phloem including clusters and resulting improved maturity. The aim of the experiments was to examine the effect of girdling on berry texture characteristics and aroma concentration.

Application of a fluorescence-based method to evaluate the ripening process and quality of Pinot Blanc grape

The chemical composition of grape berries at harvest is one of the most important factors that should be considered to produce high quality wines. Among the different chemical classes which characterize the grape juice, the polyphenolic compound, such as flavonoids, contribute to the final taste and color of wines. Recently, an innovative non-destructive method, based on chlorophyll fluorescence, was developed to estimate the phenolic maturity of red grape varieties through the evaluation of anthocyanins accumulated in the berry skin. To date, only few data are available about the application of this method on white grape varieties.

Different yield regulation strategies in semi-minimal-pruned hedge (SMPH) and impact on bunch architecture

Yields in the novel viticulture training system Semi-Minimal-Pruned Hedge (SMPH) are generally higher compared to the traditional Vertical Shoot Positioning (VSP). Excessive yields have a negative impact on the vine and wine quality, which can result in substantial losses in yield in subsequent vintages (alternate bearing) or penalties in fruit quality. Therefore yield regulation is essential. The bunch architecture in SMPH differs from VSP. Generally there is a higher amount but smaller bunches with lower single berry weights in SMPH compared to VSP.
