The latest work of the MICROWINE group is now available online and provides progress in the use of aerobic fermentation as a method to compensate for the excess alcohol content of wines (which is one of the negative consequences of climate change in the oenological field)....

Sulphur dioxide and its salts are among the most widely used preservatives in food and beverages. Although these agents contribute to both the chemical and microbiological stabilisation of food, in this work we have focused in the latter. In the case of wine, the main...

One of the main trends in oenological biotechnology in the last decade has been the incorporation of a growing number of non-Saccharomyces strains (alternative species to Saccharomyces cerevisiae) into oenological yeast catalogs. These yeasts provide several advantages,...

A class of small non-coding endogenous RNAs known as microRNAs (miRNAs) plays a major role in post-transcriptional gene regulation during plant development and plant responses to biotic and abiotic stresses. It has been suggested that the miRNA pathway contributes to pathogen...

Black-foot disease is one of the main fungal trunk diseases affecting planting material and young vines worldwide. Recently, several fungal trunk pathogens have been isolated from asymptomatic mature vines. Therefore, the objectives of this study were to (i) conduct extensive...

The microbiota colonizing the rhizosphere and the endorhizosphere contribute to plant growth, productivity, carbon sequestration, and phytoremediation. We characterize the rhizosphere bacterial and fungal microbiota across five grapevine rootstock genotypes cultivated in the...

Spontaneous fermentation is the most traditional way and a low-intervention method for conducting alcoholic fermentation in wineries, giving rise to the most complex wine profiles. However, inoculation with single culture inocula of Saccharomyces cerevisiae...

Black-foot disease is one of the main soilborne fungal diseases affecting grapevine production worldwide. Two field experiments were established to evaluate the effect of white mustard cover crop residue amendment and chemical fumigation with propamocarb + fosetyl-Al combined...

Hot-water treatment (HWT) is an efficient, environmentally safe and commercially viable method of suppressing a wide range of pests and pathogens in planting material of grapevine and other crops. The ecology of total fungal communities in grapevine is so far largely derived...

Esca and leaf stripe diseases are two of the most destructive grapevine trunk diseases which are caused by a complex of fungal species, being the Ascomycete Phaeomoniella chlamydospora the most frequently isolated species from affected vines. To date, no curative measures are...
