Effects of progeny in the modulation of the response to water stress in isohydric and anisohydric varieties


Each grapevine variety has a specific water use regulation response under drought, and it is still unclear whether this regulation results from innate genotypic behavior (iso- and anisohydric), or is a response to environmental factors, namely recurrent water stress priming effects. In the present work, we explored the influence of the field-grown genotypes’ drought memory in the drought-response phenotype of their vegetative progenies, in Trincadeira (isohydric) and Castelão (anisohydric) varieties under a drought event followed by recovery in a glasshouse. Cuttings from both cultivars subjected to full irrigation (FI) and non-irrigation (NI) treatments for 5 consecutive years were used. Progenies were subjected to two irrigation treatments, well-watered (WW), where the soil was kept at field capacity, and water-stress (WS), where irrigation was withheld for 7 days. WS plants were then re-watered and kept at field capacity for 72h. Measurements and sampling were done in both progenies of both treatments, at 0h, 72h and 168h after the beginning of the treatment and after 24h and 72h of recovery. NI progenies from both cultivars had improved gas exchange parameters, better total plant hydraulic conductance under drought, and faster recovery than FI progenies. Nocturnal and diurnal transpiration were affected both by progeny and treatment. Leaf wax content was significantly enhanced by WS in both progenies, but it was higher in NI progenies. Stomatal conductance kinetic showed differences in the timing of stomatal aperture between progenies, in particular after water recovery. Leaf temperature (Tc) was similar in both varieties and progenies, but higher temperatures were measured under WS. Leaf temperature only recovered 72h after re-watering. Although isohydric and anisohydric genotypes exhibited different drought acclimation responses due to their inner genetic behavior, their underlying hydraulic, stomatal and photosynthetic regulatory mechanisms were also affected by historical origin. In this presentation, fundamental insights about potential priming mechanisms in grapevine will be further discussed.

Use of UHPH to improve the implantation of non-Saccharomyces yeasts

Ultra High-Pressure Homogenization (UHPH) is a high-pressure pumping at 300 MPa (>200 MPa) with a subsequent depressurization against a highly resistant valve made of tungsten carbide covered by ceramic materials or carbon nanoparticles. The intense impact and shear efforts produce the nano-fragmentation of colloidal biopolymers including the elimination of microorganism (pasteurization or sterilization depending on in-valve temperature) and the inactivation of enzymes.

Wine without added SO2: Oxygen impact and color evolution during red wine aging

SO2 play a major role in wine stability and evolution during its aging and storage. Winemaking without SO2 is a big challenge for the winemakers since the lack of SO2 affects directly the wine chemical evolution such as the aromas compounds as well as the phenolic compounds. During the red wine aging, phenolic compounds such as anthocyanin, responsible of the red wine colour, and tannins, responsible of the mouthfeel organoleptic properties of wine, evolved quickly from the winemaking process to aging [1]. A lot of new interaction and molecules occurred lead by oxygen[2] thus the lack of SO2 will induce wine properties changes. Nowadays, the phenolic composition of the wine without added SO2 have not been clearly reported.

Wine odors: chemicals, physicochemical and perceptive processes involved in their perception

The odors of wines are diverse, complex and dynamic and much research has been devoted to the understanding of their chemical bases. However, while the “basic” chemical part of the problem, namely the identity of the chemicals responsible for the different odor nuances, was satisfactorily solved years ago, there are some relevant questions precluding a clear understanding. These questions are related to the physicochemical interactions determining the effective volatilities of the odorants and, particularly, to the perceptual interactions between different odor molecules affecting in different ways to the final sensory outputs.

Biodiversity and biocontrol ability of Trichoderma natural populations in soil vineyards from Castilla y León region (Spain)

Trichoderma is a microorganism present in many agricultural soils and some of its species could be used as natural biological control agents. In this work, the presence of natural populations of Trichoderma was estimated in soil vineyard and its biocontrol capacity against Phaeoacremonium minimum, one of the main agent causals of grapevine trunk diseases instead of using pesticides. Moreover, physicochemical variables in soil such as pH, organic matter and nutrients were evaluated to determine a possible correlation to natural populations of Trichoderma.

Sparkling wines and atypical aging: investigating the risk of refermentation

Sparkling wine (SW) production entails a two-steps process where grape must undergoes a primary fermentation to produce a base wine (BW) which is then refermented to become a SW. This process allows for the development of a new physicochemical profile characterized by the presence of foam and a different organoleptic profile.
