A new path for sustainable development. First results in a Venetian “bio-métaéthique company“ (Italy)


This paper will show the results of changes in income in a Veneto winery located in the municipality of Motta di Livenza (Treviso) in the North East of Italy, determined by the application of the “Holistic Universal Sustainability Charter” Metaethic 4.1CC “or” Sustainability Charter BIO-MétaÉthique 4.1CC “of GiESCO (Carbonneau, Cargnello, 2017).

These activities allowed the realization and subsequently to certify “Company BIO-MétaÉthique 4.1CC” according to the new, innovative, revolutionary “Direct Certification and Warranty of Sustainability 4.1CC” (Cargnello, Carbonneau, 2018).

Total cost of production and the “Gross Seleable Product” (GSP) of the uncertified grapes and wine “BIO-MétaÉtique 4.1CC” with those certified “BIO – MétaÉtique 4.1CC ” were compared.

The application of the “Sustainable Holistic Universal Metaethic Charter 4.1CC” or “Sustainability BIO-MétaÉthique 4.1CC” of GiESCO and the related ” Direct Certification and Warranty of Sustainability 4.1CC ” resulted in an increase in the net profit for the company between 16 and 25%.

This change in profit for the company id due to the containment of the production cost obtained above all in the vineyard by the rationalization of the management of the soil, the plant and the phytosanitary treatments and the increase in the price of certified “BIO-MétaÉtique 4.1CC bottle compared to the non-certified one.

These results will be verified with further observations in the international markets.

Analyse of« terroirs» zoning on cooperative wineries (Côtes du Rhône area, France). Influence on vine agronomic response and on grape quality

Plusieurs caves coopératives de l’AOC Côtes du Rhône se servent des informations du zonage pour la sélection des vendanges en fonction du terroir d’origine, afin d’élaborer des «cuvées terroir» et d’exploiter ainsi le potentiel qualitatif de leurs secteurs.

Influence of the “terroir” (soil, climate and wine grower) on the quality of red Grenache wines in the Rhône Valley

«L’Observatoire Grenache» est un réseau de parcelles qui a été mis en place par l’Institut Rhodanien en Vallée du Rhône sur les millésimes de 1995 à 1999. Composé de 24 parcelles de Vitis vinifera L. cv Grenache noir, ce réseau vise à étudier l’influence du terroir (sol, climat et vigneron) sur la qualité des vins. Les parcelles ont été choisies afin de représenter différentes situations géographiques et géopédologiques de la vallée du Rhône. Le matériel végétal (clone, porte-greffe), la taille (cordon de Royat), la densité et l’âge de la parcelle ont été encadrées. Ainsi les conditions de milieu (sol, climat) et les pratiques du vigneron étaient les principales sources de variations.

Characterizing the effects of nitrogen on grapevines with different scion/rootstock combinations: agronomic, metabolomic and transcriptomic approaches

Most vineyards are grafted and include a variety (Vitis vinifera) grafted over a wild Vitis rootstock (hybrids of V. berlandieri, riparia and rupestris). Grape berry quality at harvest depends on a subtle balance between acidity and the concentrations of sugars, polyphenols and precursors of aroma compounds. The mechanisms controlling the balance of sugars/acids/polyphenols are influenced by the abiotic environment, in particular nitrogen supply, and interact with the genotypes of both the scion variety and the rootstock. Previous work suggests that some of the effects of water stress are in fact linked to a nitrogen deficiency driven indirectly by the reduction of water absorption.

Colloidal stabilization of young red wine by Acacia Senegal gum: the major implication of protein-rich arabinogalactan-proteins

Acacia senegal gum (Asen) is an edible dried gummy exudate [1] added in young red wines to ensure their colloidal stability, precluding the precipitation of the coloring matter. Asen macromolecules, belonging to the arabinogalactan-protein (AGP) family [2], are hyperbranched, charged and amphiphilic heteropolysaccharides composed especially of sugars (92-96 %) and a small fraction of proteins (1-3 %). Asen is defined as a continuum of macromolecules that could be separated into three fractions by hydrophobic interaction chromatography (HIC) [3-4]. HIC-F1 (85-94 % of Asen), HIC-F2 (6-18 % of Asen) and HIC-F3 (1-3 % of Asen) are named and classified in that order according to their protein content, and then a growing hydrophobicity. The efficiency of Asen towards the coloring matter instability is evaluated according to an “efficacy test” that consists to determine the Asen quantity required to prevent the flocculation by calcium of a colloidal iron hexacyanoferrate solution (International Oenological Codex).

Red wine extract and resveratrol from grapevines could counteract AMD by inhibiting angiogenesis promoted by VEGF pathway in human retinal cells

Age-related macular degeneration (AMD) that is the main cause of visual impairment and blindness in Europe which is characterized by damages in the central part of the retina, the macula. This degenerative disease of the retina is mainly due to the molecular mechanism involving the production and secretion of vascular endothelial growth factor (VEF). Despite therapeutic advances thanks
