Consortium: Qualivitis




Wine is one of the food-processing products whose value vary the most in function of quality. Wine quality is directly related to the intrinsic quality of the grapes. In fact, the phenolic and aromatic fractions (FFAs) of the grapes are the most important factors determining the wine quality, their structure in the mouth, aroma type and intensity, and their wine aging capacity. It is of great interest for the wine industry to have analytical indexes that allow to know the quality potential of the grape produces in a vine plot. In a comprehensive way, these indexes allow us to evaluate how certain culturing practices affect the wine quality.
The main aim of the action group is to establish collaborative work on the prediction and assessment of grape quality in wine-growing tests based on the characterization of the FFAs. This will help to better understand the implications of different growing and culture techniques of vines. Particularly it is of relevant interest the evaluation of vineyard management techniques in the context of climate change, trying to avoid unbalances between sugar and phenolic contents at the grape ripening.
