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.

A fine-scale approach to map bioclimatic indices using and comparing dynamical and geostatistical methods

Climate, especially temperature, plays a major role in grapevine development. Several bioclimaticindices have been created to relate temperature to grapevine phenology (e.g. Winkler Index, Huglin Index, Grapevine Flowering Véraison model [GFV]).

Unveiling the Grapevine Red Blotch Virus (GRBV) host-pathogen arms-race via multi-omics for enhanced viral defense 

The Grapevine Red Blotch Virus (GRBV) poses a critical challenge to the wine sector, lacking a uniquely identified vector. Current control methods involve costly and labor-intensive vine removal, emphasizing the urgency for targeted alternatives. The limited understanding of intricate host-virus interactions underscores the need for foundational knowledge to develop innovative disease control strategies. These include efforts to boost the plant’s RNA interference (RNAi) response, including RNA-based topical applications.

Prospects for enlarging of microzone Manavi in the East Georgia

The experimental studies conducted in the eastern Georgia in Sagarejo administrative district on the foothills of the southern slope of Tsiv-Gombori range reveal the possibility of enlarging Manavi traditional specific zone to the north-west (from Giorgitsminda to Khashmi), at 500-750 m above sea level.

Sensory evaluation of grape berries: predictive power for sensory properties of Sauvignon blanc, Riesling and Pinot noir wines

Sensory analysis of grape berries is a common tool to evaluate the degree of grape maturation and to make sound picking decisions.
