A novel system for evaluating drought-cold tolerance of grapevines using chlorophyll fluorescence.

BACKGROUND:Grape production in continental climatic regions suffers from the combination of drought and cold stresses during winter. Developing a reliable system to simulate combined drought-cold stress and to determine physiological responses and regulatory mechanisms is important. Evaluating tolerance to combined stress at germplasm level is crucial to select parents for breeding grapevines.RESULTS:In the present study, two species, namely,Vitis amurensis and V. vinifera cv. ‘Muscat Hamburg’, were used to develop a reliable system for evaluating their tolerance to drought-cold stress. This system used tissue -cultured grapevine plants, 6% PEG solution, and

What Can the Brain Teach Us about Winemaking? An fMRI Study of Alcohol Level Preferences.

Over the last few decades,wine makers have been producing wines with a higher alcohol content, assuming that they are more appreciated by consumers. To test this hypothesis, we used functional magnetic imaging to compare reactions of human subjects to different types ofwine, focusing on brain regions critical for flavor processing and food reward. Participants were presented with carefully matched pairs of high- and low-alcohol content red wines, without informing them of any of thewine attributes. Contrary to expectation, significantly greater activation was found for low-alcohol than for high-alcohol content wines

Aroma Potential of Oak Battens prepared from Decommissioned Oak Barrels.

Oak maturation plays an important role in the production ofwine and traditionally involves aging in oak barrels. During barrel maturation, volatile compounds are extracted from oak wood and impart aroma and flavor towine, enhancing its character and complexity. However, barrels contain a finite pool of extractable material and so the volatile compounds available for extraction diminish with time. As a consequence, most barrels are decommissioned after 5 or 6 years. This study sought to investigate whether or not decommissioned barrels can be ‘reclaimed’ and utilized as a previously untapped source

Study of combined effect of proteins and bentonite fining on the wine aroma loss.

The wine aroma loss as a consequence of treatments with bentonite is due to the occurrence of multiple interaction mechanisms. In addition to a direct effect of bentonite, the removal of aroma compounds bound to protein components adsorbed by the clay has been hypothesized but never demonstrated. We studied the effect of bentonite addition on total wine aroma compounds (extracted from Moscato wine) in a model solution in the absence and presence of total and purified (thaumatin-like proteins and chitinase) wine proteins. The results showed that in general bentonite alone
