Wine exporters from across the region have raised a toast to the Chinese free trade deal which they hope will grow the Australian brand in the major market. Shaw Vineyard Estate owner Graeme Shaw, of Murrumbateman, said the greatest benefit of the progressive elimination of trade tariffs would likely be promotional opportunities. The free trade agreement, signed by Prime Minister Tony Abbott on Wednesday, was expected to remove the 14 per cent tariff on Australian bottled wine, and 20 per cent slug on bulk wine, across four years once in
Dicen que aventaja a la botella y a las damajuanas. Responde a las nuevas formas de consumo. Es más ecológico que otros envases.
AIMS: This study examined the effects of yeast strains in a novel winemaking process that had been designed to optimize phenolic extraction and improve production efficiency for Pinot noir winemaking. METHODS AND RESULTS: Microwave maceration with early pressing and co-inoculation of yeast and malolactic bacteria for simultaneous alcoholic and malolactic fermentation was investigated. Yeast treatments (Saccharomyces cerevisiae RC212 and EC1118, and Saccharomyces bayanus AWRI1176) were co-inoculated with Oenococcus oeni PN4 immediately after must microwave maceration. Alcoholic and malolactic fermentation were complete 17 days postinoculation for all three yeast treatments. At 16-month
We recently launched the winter wine tour program. Two long-distance wine and food tours that are perfect to make the cold and dark winter more bearable: Chile and Argentina in February: A magnificent experience both for the wines and the food, but also the countries, the people, the cultures, the […]
Un equipo de investigación de la Universidad de Florida dirigido por Dennis Gray, está desarrollando variedades resistentes a las enfermedades, utilizando el llamado “cruzamiento de precisión”. Han conseguido cruzar con éxito Thompson Seedless, Seyval Blanc y Syrah, variedades resistentes a enfermedades fúngicas.
Resveratrol, a phytoalexin found in grapes andwine, exhibits antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, anti-aging and antitumor activities. Resveratrol also protects neurons and astrocytes in several neurological disease models. Astrocytes are responsible for modulating neurotransmitter systems, synaptic information, ionic homeostasis, energy metabolism, antioxidant defense and inflammatory response. In previous work, we showed that resveratrol modulates important glial functions, including glutamate uptake, glutamine synthetase activity, glutathione (GSH) levels and inflammatory response. Furthermore, astrocytes express toll-like receptors that specifically recognize lipopolysaccharide (LPS), which has been widely used to study experimentally inflammatory response. In this sense, LPS
Resveratrol, an antioxidant found in the skin of red grapes, has been found to reduce weight gain by turning “white” fat into calorie-burning “brown” fat.
BACKGROUND:Gaseous fumigants are commonly employed to control fungal decay of cold-stored grapes. So far it is not clear if these fumigants, beside the direct interaction against fungal structures, induce transcriptional responses of defensive markers. In order to contribute to understand the mechanisms by which these fumigants exert their effect, it was studied the influence of ozone (O3 ) and sulfur dioxide (SO2 ) on the decay caused by Botrytis cinerea, and the quality and expression of the defense related genes chitinase, β-1,3-glucanase and phenylalanine ammonia-lyase (PAL) in the tablegrape cultivars
Spirits globally are bouncing back according to the latest Rabobank Spirit Quarterly Q3 2015 report, which made Vinexpo’s new “Spiritual” zone a big draw for attendees.
The American wine market, already the world’s biggest, still has “phenomenal” potential for growth if handled with care, US wine professionals said this week at the world’s leading wine fair, Vinexpo. “We are a young thirsty nation,” one expert said, referring to the 370 million cases of wine guzzled in 2014 — 25 percent of them imported — as well as the steady growth in wine consumption in the past two decades, which is expected to see an 11 percent hike between 2014 and 2018.
Sustainable viticulture is much talked about in Champagne today. A year ago the producer unions starting making great efforts to get the growers to think more about the environment and to work towards sustainably (durable in French). Now, this work has yielded results and a certification that has been approved […]
According to provisional statistics from the organizer Vinexpo, the number of Chinese visitors to the Fair has increased by 14 percent over the first four days of the Show compared to whole period of the 2013 edition.
Aurelio Montes Jr. of Kaiken in Argentina has defended using preps like virgin deer stomach in the vineyard, claiming that biodynamic viticulture makes you “more human”.
Restructuring Argentina’s debt isn’t what you expect to find in most writing about wine. Nor is a center for early childhood development in South Africa. Nor, for that matter, is commentary on immigration in Italy and the recent elections in Turkey.
The sale of the Benziger brand to the makers of Franzia could give impetus to biodynamic wines. Ten years ago I went to one of the first biodynamic wine tastings in San Francisco. The mainstream wine media mocked it as a bunch of loons who bury cow horns filled with manure, and spend hours stirring potions by hand. There actually were some scruffy hippies in the room, with unusual tasting no-sulfite wines.
In a previous study, we demonstrated that agrape pomace extract (GPE) exerted antioxidant activity in endothelial (EA.hy926) and muscle (C2C12) cells through an increase in glutathione (GSH) levels. In the present study, in order to elucidate the mechanisms responsible for the antioxidant activity of GPE, its effects on the expression of critical antioxidant enzymes, such as catalase (CAT), superoxide dismutase (SOD)1, heme oxygenase 1 (HO-1) and gamma-glutamylcysteine synthetase (GCS) were assessed in EA.hy926 and C2C12 cells. Moreover, the effects of GPE on CAT, SOD and glutathione S-transferase (GST) enzymatic activity were evaluated. For this purpose, the C2C12 and
