Technology is becoming an increasingly vital part of the wine business. A new price-comparison tool from Liv-ex hopes to make things smoother for merchants. Rupert Millar investigates.

Without any argument or hesitation, Malbec jumped ship and traveled to Argentina in the 19th Century, where it subsequently found a welcome home in Mendoza, particularly in the legendary Uco Valley and Lujan de Cuyo sub-regions.
La Junta de Control de la Rioja ha dado el visto bueno para que se introduzcan cambios en las regulaciones que darán mayor visibilidad a las unidades geográficas más pequeñas.
Numbers reflect the improvements – with New Jersey having now increased to 50 wineries and more than 1,000 acres of wine – as do the recent awards – Sharrott’s port-style red called Wicked, made from Chambourcin grapes, won the state’s Governor’s Cup and a double gold in the San Francisco Wine Competition this year. That’s just one example.
El cambio climático va a provocar que los vinos de la variedad tempranillo tengan menos color y que baje su acidez si no hay una adaptación de la viticultura actual, un problema en la zona de Rioja donde ya de por sí este último valor es bajo.
There are some newer grape varieties that capture what people like about wines like cabernet, and they’re also cold-hardy. Many of these grape varieties like Frontenac Gris, Frontenac Blanc, Marquette and La Crescent were developed at the University of Minnesota.
They say that even water has taste, so given the more than 500 known aromas, can wine be any different? The question is, what do we taste, where does taste come from, and how do wine aromas differ from one another?

When it comes to wine, it’s been that black and white for the past hundred years. In short, native American grapes and hybrid American-Euro vines — varieties like Concord, Frontenac, and Vidal Blanc — are just not good enough for wine. Or at least not fine wine. But that could be changing. Source, VinePair.
Respect for nature and the craft of viticulture are more important than achieving success at any cost.
Central Otago produces about 60 times more wine than the Waitaki Valley but impending intellectual property rights registration for Otago’s two wine regions has benefits for both, Hamish MacLean reports for Otago Daily Times.
Although geographical distance is a key element involved in strain distribution, the high presence of industrial strains in vineyard reduced the differences between populations. This finding indicates that industrial yeast diffusion it is a real emergency and their presence strongly interferes with the natural yeast microbiota.
Elicitors play an important role in the defense against pathogens as an alternative to chemical pesticides by increasing secondary metabolites. Their effect on grape amino acid has been little investigated. Thus, the aim of this research was to study the influence of methyl jasmonate (MeJ), chitosan (CHT), and a yeast extract (YE) on grape amino acid composition, through foliar applications to grapevines. The must amino acid concentration was analyzed by HPLC. The results showed that CHT and YE treatments decreased the must concentration of several amino acids, affecting total amino
Titanium dioxide nanoparticles (TiO NPs) are widely used to additives in cosmetics, pharmaceuticals, paints and foods. Recent studies have demonstrated that TiO NPs increased the risk of cancer and the mechanism might relate with oxidative stress. Grape seed procyanidin extract (GSPE) is a natural compound which has been demonstrated to possess a wide array of pharmacological and biochemical actions, including anti-inflammatory, anti-carcinogenic, and antioxidant properties. Our data show that GSPE prevents the changes of histopathology and biomarkers in heart, liver and kidney that occur in mice exposed to TiO NPs.
Clean water is vital to life and one of our most precious resources, yet around 40% of the world’s population doesn’t have enough. At the same time, we are our own worst enemy as over 80% of wastewater…
As temperatures rose to over 100 degrees last week, wine grapes began to shrivel on the vine. The Umpqua Valley produces award-winning wine from its 30-plus vineyards across the county, and vineyard owners are glad the heat wave stretching from Portland to Redding at the beginning of August didn’t last for more than a week.
