Physiology of Grape Ripening and Grape Enological Quality

The physiology of grape ripening and grape enological quality are studied in relation to environmental conditions and suitability for viticulture. Moreover, ecophysiological models useful for rationalizing the vineyard cultivation techniques in different contexts, grape cultivar, environment, wine objectives are developed through the characterization of the interaction genotype x environment.

Genetic resources of cultivated and wild grapevines

Studies for the identification, collection, preservation and enhancement of genetic resources of cultivated and wild grapevines are conducted. Moreover, genetic improvement of grapevines through clonal selection techniques for conservation of intravariety genetic diversity is pursued.

Resistance to stresses

Resistance to stresses

Grapevine rootstocks resistant to abiotic stresses (water stress, salinity and iron chlorosis) are selected through the development of molecular markers and their role on vegetative-productive and qualitative performance in the open vineyards is assessed.
