Identifying physiological and genetic bases of grapevine adaptation to climate change with maintained quality: Genome diversity as a driver for phenotypic plasticity  (‘PlastiVigne’ project)


In the face of climate change, new grapevine varieties will have to show an adaptive  phenotypic plasticity to maintain production with erratic water resources, and still ensure the quality of the final product. Their selection requires a better knowledge of the genetic basis of those traits and of the elementary processes involved in their variability. ‘PlastiVigne’, an emblematic project of the Vinid’Occ key challenge, funded by the Occitanie Region (France), tackles this issue with innovative genomic and physiological tools implemented on a unique panel of grape genetic resources representing the genetic diversity of Vitis vinifera. A graph-pangenome is developed from a representative set of high-quality genomes to study the extent and impact of structural genome variations and chromosomal rearrangements in the rapid adaptation capacity of grapevine. We will characterize structural variants potentially related to differential expression or alternative spicing of candidate genes for stress tolerance in individual grape berries. Markers derived from structural variants mapped on the pangenome, as well as new sets of SNP markers, will allow the identification of genomic regions associated to leaf water and carbon balance under several water stress regimes, its  plasticity, adaptation traits like phenology, genomic vulnerability, and to some traits related to the aromatic potential of grape berries. They represent new tools for grape breeding. More detailed functional analysis of leaf and berry phenotypic plasticity in response to water deficit will be then conducted, on a subset of contrasted varieties. We will present the project strategy and highlight a few preliminary results.

Behaviour of two training systems for mechanical pruning combined with different nitrogen fertilizations on cv. Colombard

Today winegrowers involved in mechanical winter pruning are applying this viticultural technique on two main training systems, the free cordon, appearing to be the more efficient, and the trellised vertical shoot positioning (VSP) system. The main reasons for maintaining the trellis are generally due to common habits in vineyard management, risk of wind damage for the shoots, or risk of decrease in photosynthesis potential. The aim of the study was to assess the effects of the two training systems on vine. In addition, different nitrogen fertilization levels were applied on the two systems to evaluate the best combination to achieve yield and grape quality.

Significance of factors making Riesling an iconic grape variety

Riesling is the iconic grape variety of Germany and accounts for 23% of the German viticulture acreage, which comprises 45% of the worldwide Riesling plantings. Riesling wines offer a wide array of styles from crisp sparkling wines to highly concentrated and sweet Trockenbeerenauslese or Icewines. However, its thin berry skin makes Riesling more vulnerable to detrimental environmental threats than other white wine varieties.
