One day about seven years ago, Danish entrepreneur Heini Zachariassen found himself standing in front of an enormous wine shelf at his local supermarket and feeling, as he recalls, “stupid.” He wanted to buy a bottle of wine, but he had no idea what was considered good.

Ask scientist Alan Wei about the grapevine disease known as red blotch and he won’t mince his words: “Aside from drought, it’s the most serious concern to confront grapegrowers in the past 10 years.” Striking words from the owner and manager of Agri-Analysis, an agricultural diagnostics lab in Davis, Calif., especially considering the virus was only recently identified. Red blotch can severely hinder the grapegrowing process, to the point that infected vines are best destroyed. Vines with blotch produce smaller grapes that fail to reach full physiological maturity and ripeness,

The Geantet-Pansiot vineyard estate in Burgundy, France is to equip all of its wine bottles with a ‘near field communication’ (NFC) tag to let its customers authenticate the beverage and receive information about the wine directly on their smartphone.

More wine is drunk in Paris than in any other city, according to new research on the biggest wine drinking cities released by France’s INSEEC business school. It crowned Paris as ‘the world capital of wine’. Parisians drink the equivalent of 697 million bottles of wine per year, according to the stats, which were compiled with help from the International Organisation of Vine and Wine (OIV).

“That’s how we passed from blood, to spirits, to wine.” Were a wine lover to hear this out of context, they might recoil in horror at the merest association between the two. For Luv Valecha and his two friends and colleagues, Aurore Ceyrolle and Hugo Gradel, the link is critical. The three students from the Institut d’Optique Graduate School, part of the Université Paris-Saclay in France, have created a unique, portable device, adapted from existing blood analysis technology invented by biotech start-up Archimej Technology, which allows for the real-time control

Escape of carbon dioxide during grape must fermentation leads to loss of volatile compounds, which ultimately affects the wine’s aroma. An innovative condensation device was designed to trap organic volatile compounds that would otherwise be lost. Trials were performed using Sangiovese and Syrah grapes and involved continuous condensation of vapor (condensed fractions, CFs) that escaped from fermentation tanks. Ethanol content and volatile compound composition of CFs were measured daily since 48 hr after the fermentation began. An average of 1.3 g CF per kg fermenting must was recovered, corresponding to
