Canberra wine exporters ready to cash in on Chinese free trade

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

Yeast strain affects phenolic concentration in Pinot noir wines made by microwave maceration with early pressing.

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

Resveratrol Protects Hippocampal Astrocytes Against LPS-Induced Neurotoxicity Through HO-1, p38 and ERK Pathways.

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

Quality and PR gene expression of table grapes treated with ozone and sulfur dioxide to control fungal decay.

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

US ‘phenomenally thirsty’ for wine: experts

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.

Biodynamic wine dives into the mainstream

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.

Grape pomace extract exerts antioxidant effects through an increase in GCS levels and GST activity in muscle and endothelial cells.

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
