IVES Technical Reviews

Launched in 2020, IVES Technical Reviews is a tool to transfer current research to end users.
Articles are sourced from scientific and technical journals and are reviewed by two members of the journal’s editorial board before publication. They are published online in six languages (English, French, German, Italian, Portuguese and Spanish) with Open Access*.

Editorial process

Its editorial board is equally composed of more than 70 researchers and professionals of the wine industry. All the articles published are previously reviewed by at least two members of the board. This process not only guarantees scientific quality and robustness of the sources, but also ensures that the format, angle and presentation of the results are consistent and that the scientific content meets our readers’ expectations.

Editorial team

・Editor-in-chief (vine): Damian Martin (Plant and Food research, New Zealand).
・Editor-in-chief (wine): Nikolaos Kontoudakis, (International Hellenic University).
・Editorial manager: Julien Dumercq, IVES.

  • Late frost protection – what to retain from the Champagne experience? 21 October 2022
    With the occurrence of frost, sensitive plants are susceptible to damage. One of the most counter-intuitive impacts of climate change is the increasing frequency of spring frost.  Studies have warned of this problem (Inouye, 2008), describing an earlier budburst due to higher temperatures during winter and the last day of frost remaining around the same […]
  • Reducing possibly synthetic fungicide input by using vigor thresholded NDVI as early risk indicator of <i>Botrytis</i> bunch rot in vineyards 11 October 2022
    Botrytis bunch rot (BBR) is a major disease occurring in vineyards worldwide. Its control, still largely based on synthetic fungicide sprayings at pre-determined intervals, often leads to residues in grapes and wines that may negatively affect the environment and/or human health. To rationalise BBR management, early disease risk indicators were developed and evaluated in field […]
  • Late pruning of the vine 22 September 2022
    In the current climatic context, with milder winters leading to earlier budburst in most wine regions, vines are exposed to the risk of spring frosts for a longer period.  Depending on the year, frost can lead to yield losses of between 20 and 100 %, jeopardizing the economic survival of wine estates. In addition, by destroying […]
  • Wine labelling with the list of ingredients: context, consumer’s perception and future challenges 8 September 2022
    Since 2011, Regulation (EU) No 1169/2011 on the provision of food information to consumers (FIC) exempted alcoholic beverages above 1.2% abv from the mandatory list of ingredients and the nutrition declaration. In 2017, the European Commission invited the alcohol beverages industry to respond to consumers’ expectations and to present, within a year, a proposal of […]
  • <em>Drosophila suzukii</em>, a species to monitor 23 August 2022
    Drosophila suzukii has recently arrived in Northern Hemisphere vineyards and has caused damage to grape, particularly in Europe. Damage to the grapes has been observed, as well as the development of sour rot linked to its presence. Other species of drosophila are also present in the vineyards. This insect has now clearly established itself in […]
