Tracking the origin of Tempranillo Tinto through whole genome resequencing and high-throughput genotyping  


Grapevine cultivars are vegetatively propagated to maintain their varietal characteristics. This process of multiplication leads to spontaneous somatic mutations that can eventually generate a variant phenotype, of potential interest for cultivar improvement and innovation. However, regardless their phenotypic effect, somatic mutations stack in the genome, and they can be used to reveal the origin and dissemination history of ancient cultivars. Here, a stringent somatic variant calling over whole genome resequencing data from 35 ‘Tempranillo Tinto’ clones or old vines from seven Iberian winemaking regions revealed 135 single nucleotide variations (SNVs) shared by some of the clonal lines. Among them, we selected 56 highly informative SNVs to custom-design a high-throughput genotyping chip for this cultivar, which was validated and further tested in 94 ‘Tempranillo Tinto’ vines from highly diverse regions. Phylogenetic analyses revealed that ‘Tempranillo Tinto’ samples grouped in three major clonal lineages, a clustering that reflected the geographic origin of the samples. After combining these results with genome re-sequencing data from the two ‘Tempranillo Tinto’ parents, we found the Ebro River Valley as the most likely region of origin for ‘Tempranillo Tinto’. Results also revealed one major historical dissemination route that likely progressed westwards from this original site, towards the main winemaking regions found across the Duero River Valley and to the South in Portugal. Collectively, the results obtained in this study shed light on the origin and historical dispersal of ‘Tempranillo Tinto’ in the Iberian Peninsula, and released highly informative SNVs for the differentiation of intra-cultivar lineages.

Survey reveals training needs for airblast sprayer operators

In California, little training in sprayer calibration or pesticide drift management is required to apply pesticides. Yet, there is a need to maximize pesticide efficacy and minimize drift. Therefore, our team is developing a training course on airblast application best practices. We distributed a survey to identify current practices and used importance-performance analysis to interpret responses to the importance of spray related topics and satisfaction with previous training.

Contribution of soil and atmospheric conditions to leaf water potential in grapevines

Etant lié au sol et aux conditions atmosphériques, le statut hydrique influence la physiologie de la vigne d’une part, mais joue aussi un role important en ce qui concerne la qualité du raisin et donc du vin d’autre part. Nous avons mesuré, dans la région de Stellenbosch, le statut hydrique sur des pieds de Sauvignon Blanc non irrigués, implantés sur 2 terroirs différents, l’un froid, l’autre plus chaud.

Corvina and Corvinone grape berries grown in different areas and their aptitude to postharvest dehydration

The Valpolicella area (Veneto Region, Italy) is famous for its high quality wines: Amarone and Recioto, both obtained from partial post-harvest dehydrated red grapes.

On sample preparation methods for fermentative beverage VOCs profiling by GCxGC-TOFMS

Study the influence of sample preparation methods on the volatile organic compounds (VOCs) profiling for fermentative beverages by GCxGC-TOFMS analysis. METHODS: Five common sample preparation methods were tested on pooled red wine, white wine, cider, and beer. Studied methods were DHS, Liquid-liquid extraction, mSBSE, SPE and SPME. VOCs were analyzed by GCxGC-TOFMS followed by data analysis with ChromaTOF. RESULTS: The volatile organic compounds (VOCs) profiling results were very dependent on the sample preparation methods.

Towards multi-purpose valorisation of polyphenols from grape pomace: Pressurized liquid extraction coupled to purification by membrane processes

Grape by-products (including skins, seeds, stems and vine shoots) are rich in health promoting polyphenols. Their extraction from winery waste and their following purification are of special interest to produce extracts with high added value compounds. Meanwhile, the growing concern over environmental problems associated with economic constraints, require the development of environmentally sustainable extraction technologies. The extraction using semi-continuous subcritical water, as a natural solvent at high temperature and high pressure a technology is promising “green” technology that is environmentally friendly, energy efficient and improve the extraction process in plant tissues.
