Creativini: an augmented reality card game to promote the learning of the reasoning process of a technical management route for making wine 


Context and purpose of the study – Nowadays, the entire viticultural and enological process is wisely thought out according to the style of wine to be produced and the local climatic conditions. Acquiring the approach of a technical management route specific for wine production remains a complex learning process for students. To enhance such learning, The Ecole d’Ingénieurs de PURPAN  (PURPAN), an engineering school located in Toulouse southwest France, has recently developed Creativini, a collaborative card game in English made of 150 cards spread into 14 batches. Students in groups of 3 to 6 must design a technical production route, from plant material to bottling. The game is played in ascending order of batch number with the three first batches (wine style, climate and production system) and the last one (hazard) being drawn. Based on previous research, augmented reality (AR) contents were included in the game to promote the commitment, the motivation of students in this learning, and to favor the anchoring of knowledge by offering a strong experience. The objective of this work was to investigate the added value brought by AR.

Material and methods – Thirty-six 20 years old students from PURPAN were divided into 6 groups of 6 students to play a game in March 2022. Half of them were allowed to get access to the AR content (AR group), while the other half was not. For these latter groups, the AR content was replaced by some text to read (without AR group). The knowledge of the students was assessed through a quiz composed of 20 questions using a learning management system (LMS) before to start and at the end of the game. At the end of the game, another questionnaire was also used to evaluate how the educational medium was perceived, and the emotions felt by the students during the game. Knowledge scores were treated through a one-way analysis of variance (ANOVA) treatment to assess the impact of AR.

Results – The questionnaire revealed that both groups enjoyed the game and were satisfied by the session which confirms the relevance of the medium. Those from the AR group experienced more positive emotions (pleasure/hope) than those from the group without AR who felt more stress and boredom. A significant difference was observed for the knowledge score between the two groups at the beginning of the game (5.1/20 with AR ; 8.1/20 without AR) highlighting an initial heterogeneity in student composition. However, at the end of the game, no significant difference was observed between the two treatments (9.5/20 with AR; 10.8/20 without AR) indicating that AR students managed to catch up. It remains unclear if this benefit is due to the AR content or to a lesser commitment of the students who played without AR and exhibited an initial higher level of expertise in viticulture and enology.

Climate change has brought several impacts that are becoming increasingly intense during the last few years and put at risk the quality of the berries or even the plant’s sustainability. Such extreme climatic events impact the composition of the wine while modulating its quality and the consumer preferences (Tempère et al., 2019). The three most important changes that take place in the must are: 1) decrease acidity, 2) increase of the concentration of sugar, hence increase of alcohol in the wine, and 3) modification
of the sensory balance and the development for example of cooked fruit aromas.


In Italy, in the past two decades, the rate of temperature increases (0.0369 °C per year) was slightly higher compared to the world average (0.0313 °C per year). It has also been indicated that the number and intensity of heat waves have increased considerably in the last decades. (IEA, 2022). Viticultural zones can be classified with climatic indexes. Huglin’s index (HI) considers the temperature in a definite area and has been considered as reliable to evaluate the thermal suitability for winegrape production (Zhang et al., 2023).

A synthesis approach on the impact of elevated CO2 on berry physiology and yield of Vitis vinifera

Besides the increase in global mean temperature the second main challenge of a changing climate is the increase in atmospheric carbon dioxide (CO2) in relation to physiology and yield performance of grapevines. The benefits of increasing CO2 levels under greenhouse environment or open field studies have been well investigated for various annual crops. Research under free carbon dioxide enrichment on field-grown perennial plants such as grapevines is limited to a few studies. Further, chamber and greenhouse experiments have been conducted mostly on potted vines under eCO2 conditions.

Microbial ecosystems in wineries – molecular interactions between species and modelling of population dynamics

Microbial ecosystems are primary drivers of viticultural, oenological and other cellar-related processes
such as wastewater treatment. Metagenomic datasets have broadly mapped the vast microbial species
diversity of many of the relevant ecological niches within the broader wine environment, from vineyard
soils to plants and grapes to fermentation. The data highlight that species identities and diversity
significantly impact agronomic performance of vineyards as well as wine quality, but the complexity
of these systems and of microbial growth dynamics has defeated attempts to offer actionable
tools to guide or predict specific outcomes of ecosystem-based interventions.

Searching for the sweet spot: a focus on wine dealcoholization

It is well known that the vinification of grapes at full maturation can produce rich, full-bodied wines,
with intense and complex flavour profiles. However, the juice obtained from such grapes may have very
high sugar concentration, resulting in wines with an excessive concentration of ethanol. In addition, the decoupling between technological maturity and phenolic/aromatic one due to global warming, exacerbates this problem in some wine-growing regions. In parallel with the increase of the mean alcohol content of wines on the market, also the demand for reduced alcohol beverages has increased in recent years, mainly as a result of health and social concerns about the risks related to the consumption of alcohol.
