Recommended grapevine varieties for the vineyards zone Vrsac and trend meteorological elements


The aim of this paper was to analyze trends of the meteorological elements and determine suitability of growing grapevine cultivar in viticulture region. Trend analyses were done, based on the data for South-Banat sub-region, an important resource for the production of grapes and wines in Pannonia plain (Vršac:H = 83 m, φ=45 09 N, λ=21 19 E). Trend of significance for the 95% level of confidence, for mean air temperature and sunshine duration, was obtained for the May-June period. For those elements, trend was increasing us well us for the precipitation in September.
Vineyard personnel are beginning to change list of some cultivars and develop new techniques for producing better fruit. These technologies such as tailoring vine care on a row-by-row and even plant–by-plant basis may prove of value in adapting vineyard to climate change. Based on trend analysis and obtained results, correction of the list of the recommended wine and table grapevine cultivars for this vinegrowing region was done. We are recommending the following mid-early season grapevine cultivars: Pinot Nero R-4, Gammy 222, Pinot gris R-6 and VCR-5, Pinot Blanco VCR 1, Chardonnay VCR 4, Riesling Renaro R2, Riesling 21, Riesling 198, Riesling Italico SK 61, SK 54 and SK 13, Sauvignon Blanc R1, Traminer Gewurz R-1, VCR-6. From the list of the table cultivars we are recommending Muscat of Banat, Muscat of Hamburg clone 192, 197, 198 and Becman.
From the new grapevine cultivars, created at the Faculty Agriculture in Zemun, Department for Viticulture, we are recommending cv. Godominka (selfpolination of Dymiat) Negotinka (Pinot Noir x Zacinak). By choosing grapevine rootstocks, priority has the fooling rootstocks Teleki 5C G-52, SO4 G-47 and Kober 5BB G-114.

Acetaldehyde-induced condensation products in red wines affect the precipitation of salivary proteins. Will this impact astringency?

Acetaldehyde is a common component of wine. It is already formed during the fermentation being an intermediate in the production of ethanol. Moreover, it can derive from the oxidation of ethanol during the wine production and aging. In wine, concentrations of acetaldehyde range from 30 to 130 mg/L. Acetaldehyde in wine can react with many compounds such as SO2, amino acids and

Bioprotective effect of non-Saccharomyces yeasts in wines made without SO2

The sulphur dioxide (SO2) is the most widely used additive in the wine industry because of its preservative action. However, in recent years the number of wineries that produce wines without SO2 has increased significantly because its allergenic character.

NADES extraction of anthocyanins derivatives from grape pomace

Grape pomace is one of the main by-products generated after pressing in wine-making. It’s valorization through the extraction of bioactive compounds is the answer for the development of sustainable processes. Nevertheless, in the recovery of anthocyanins derivatives, the extraction stage continues to be a limiting step. The nature of the sample and the type of solvent determine the efficiency of the process

Vineyard management practices to reduce sugar content on ‘Monastrell’ grapes

Climate change is resulting in more dry and hot summers, accelerating grape ripening and increasing berry sugars concentration. This results in wines with a higher alcohol content, which has a negative impact on wine quality, as well as, on consumer health. Agronomic practices that minimize these effects on berry composition and, consequently, on wine quality must be defined. In this work, different management practices have been assessed on rainfed ‘Monastrell’ grapevines in Jumilla (Murcia, Spain) from 2021 to 2023 vintages. Mulching, shading, application of kaolin and different types of pruning were evaluated, among others field adaptation practices.

Rootstock effect on Cabernet Sauvignon aromatic and chemical composition

Grape quality potential for wine production is strongly influenced by environmental parameters and agronomic factors. Several studies underline the rootstock effect on scions vegetative growth and berry composition [1] with an impact on wine quality. Rootstocks are promising agronomic tools for climate change adaptation and in most grape-growing regions the potential diversity of rootstocks is not fully used and only a few genotypes are planted. Moreover, little is known about the effect of rootstock genetic variability on the aromatic composition in wines.
