Mountainous terrain, volcanic soils, innumerable microclimates, and an ancient culture of winemaking influenced by Greeks, Phoenicians, and Romans make Italy the most diverse country in the world of wine. This diversity is reflected in the fact that Italy grows the largest number of native wine grapes known, amounting to more than a quarter of the world’s commercial wine grape types. Ian D’Agata spent thirteen years interviewing producers, walking vineyards, studying available research, and tasting wines to create this authoritative guide to Italy’s native grapes and their wines. Writing with great enthusiasm and deep knowledge, D’Agata discusses more than five hundred different native Italian grape varieties, from Aglianico to Zibibbo. D’Agata provides details about how wine grapes are identified and classified, what clones are available, which soils are ideal, and what genetic evidence tells us about a variety’s parentage. He gives historical and anecdotal accounts of each grape variety and describes the characteristics of wines made from the grape. A regional list of varieties and a list of the best producers provide additional guidance. Comprehensive, thoroughly researched, and engaging, this book is the perfect companion for anyone who wants to know more about the vast enological treasures cultivated in Italy.

Is red wine good for you? And if so, why? How much? And what are the actual benefits? This addition to the SpringerBriefs in Cell Biology series thoroughly but succinctly answers these questions. It covers the biochemistry, health benefits and therapeutic potential of wine grapes. It begins with an overview of phytoalexin production in Vitis vinifera (Common Grape Vine), detailing the relationship of resveratrol to analogues such as pterostilbene, piceid and the viniferins (resveratrol oligomers). The discussion then turns to the hundreds of reports linking resveratrol and related grape vine polyphenols to various beneficial health effects especially cardio- and cerebro- vascular, metabolic, anti-inflammatory and more. Also addressed are the numerous intracellular mechanisms that have been shown to mediate the effects of these compounds in mammalian cells and tissues. Finally, the authors discuss aspects of polyphenol bioavailability and how this will influence choices taken for delivering these compounds as nutritional supplements. A brief chapter containing general conclusions and prospectus rounds out the information. ​

Excerpt from The Best Wine Grapes for California; Pruning Young Vines; Pruning the Sultanina For the grape-grower who sells his grapes for so much a ton what ever the quality, the question resolves itself into, Which is the heaviest bearer? For the consumer the question means either What grape will pro duce good wine at the minimum cost? Or What grape will produce the best wine irrespective of cost? According to the kind of consumer he happens to be. As quantity and quality are to a great extent inversely proportionate, these views are widely divergent. For the wme-maker the question is a little more. Complicated, but may be stated essentially as, What grape can I handle with the most profit? This profit will depend on the difference between the price he is forced to pay the grower for grapes and that which he can persuade the consumer to pay him for wine. For one class of consumers he must get cheap grapes, for the other he can afford to pay almost any price, providing they are of the right quality.

During spontaneous food/beverage fermentations, the microbiota associated with the raw material has a considerable importance: this microbial consortium evolves in reason of the nutrient content and of the physical, chemical, and biological determinants present in the food matrix, shaping fermentation dynamics with significant impacts on the ‘qualities’ of final productions. The selection from the indigenous micro-biodiversity of ‘virtuous’ ecotypes that coupled pro-technological and biotechnological aptitudes provide the basis for the formulation of ‘tailored’ starter cultures. In the fermenting food and beverage arena, the wine sector is generally characterized by the generation of a high added value. Together with a pronounced seasonality, this feature strongly contributes to the selection of a large group of starter cultures. In the last years, several studies contributed to describe the complexity of grapevine-associated microbiota using both culture-dependent and culture-independent approaches. The grape-associated microbial communities continuously change during the wine-making process, with different dominances that correspond to the main biotechnological steps that take place in wine. In order to simplify, following a time trend, four major dominances can be mainly considered: non-Saccharomyces, Saccharomyces, lactic acid bacteria (LAB), and spoilage microbes. The first two dominances come in succession during the alcoholic fermentation: the impact of Saccharomyces (that are responsible of key enological step of ethanol production) can be complemented/integrated by the contributions of compatible non-Saccharomyces strains. Lactic acid bacteria constitute the malolactic consortium responsible of malolactic fermentation, a microbial bioconversion often desired in wine (especially in red wine production). Finally, the fourth dominance, the undesired microbiota, represents a panel of microorganisms that, coupling spoilage potential to the resistance to the harsh conditions typical of wine environment, can cause important economic losses. In each of these four dominances a complex microbial biodiversity has been described. The studies on the enological significance of the micro-biodiversity connected with each of the four dominances highlighted the presence of a dichotomy: in each consortia there are species/strains that, in reason of their metabolisms, are able to improve wine ‘qualities’ (resource of interest in starter cultures design), and species/strains that with their metabolism are responsible of depreciation of wine. Articles describing new oenological impacts of yeasts and bacteria belonging to the four main categories above mentioned (non-Saccharomyces, Saccharomycetes, lactic acid bacteria, and spoilage microbes) are welcome. Moreover, in this Research Topic, we encourage mini-review submissions on topics of immediate interest in wine microbiology that link microbial biodiversity with positive/negative effects in wine.

The second edition of the book begins with the description of the diversity of wine-related microorganisms, followed by an outline of their primary and energy metabolism. Subsequently, important aspects of the secondary metabolism are dealt with, since these activities have an impact on wine quality and off-flavour formation. Then chapters about stimulating and inhibitory growth factors follow. This knowledge is helpful for the growth management of different microbial species. The next chapters focus on the application of the consolidated findings of molecular biology and regulation the functioning of regulatory cellular networks, leading to a better understanding of the phenotypic behaviour of the microbes in general and especially of the starter cultures as well as of stimulatory and inhibitory cell-cell interactions during wine making. In the last part of the book, a compilation of modern methods complete the understanding of microbial processes during the conversion of must to wine.This broad range of topics about the biology of the microbes involved in the vinification process could be provided in one book only because of the input of many experts from different wine-growing countries.

Wine grape varieties are classified by their water stress response in two groups: Isohydric varieties showing high and constant water status under drought due to highly sensitive stomata and anisohydric varieties showing low and variable water status under drought due to insensitive stomata. We investigated the soundness of this classification for 18 different varieties in eastern Washington. From 2015 to 2018, dry-down cycles were applied to the vineyard until severe signs of stress were apparent. Physiological parameters as well as soil moisture (Ïþv) were monitored. Our results show that there was a continuum of midday leaf water potential pattern (ηl), progressing from a linear drop to one that shows a plateau down to a level of Ïþv. There was also a continuum in the minimal midday ηl recorded (from -1.3 to -1.9 MPa). Stomatal sensitivity was not correlated with the minimal midday ηl. When an internal regulation model of ηl was applied, most varieties showed an efficiency of the stomata in controlling against water potential drop. Chardonnay, however, showed a potential riskier strategy in terms of hydraulic failure. The model's parameter ϳ was not correlated with the minimal midday ηl, nor was it correlated with stomatal sensitivity. In a second experiment, we used a design of scion/rootstock combinations to isolate the effect of the root material, canopy material and grafting union on the water status and stomatal responses seen at the leaf level. Two model genotypes Grenache and Syrah were monitored in 2017 and 2018 in self-grafted, reciprocally grafted and own-rooted combinations while the soil is drying after standardizing the leaf area. No rootstock, scion or grafting union effect was found in any of the combinations. We conclude that leaf area might be an important confounding factor in determining water stress responses among genotypes and that leaf water stress response is not an inherent genetic characteristic. In a third experiment, we tested the effect of vapor pressure deficit (VPD) on stomatal response in a growth chamber setup under high Ïþv. When VPD increased from 1.5 to 2.8 KPa, gs decreased by a 1.5 and midday ηl decreased by a 1.14-fold.
