UE1117 UVV of INRA

INRA UE 1117 : experimental unit on grapevine and wine. In the framework of the Joint Technological Unit Vinitera, the experimental unit is conducting research projects about wine quality and typicality, taking into account the origin (terroirs) and the management (agricultural and oenological practices). The on-going research project of the unit deals with the “dynamics of the relations between terroirs and wines’ typicality in a changing context†. Climate change and reduction of pesticides applications are the two major factors of the context taken into account. For the last five years, the team has been participating in collaborative projects about climate change (PSDR GO CLIMASTER, ANR TERVICLIM, GICC TERADCLIM and MP ACCAF/LACCAVE). The experimental unit operates two pilot sites in the Mid-Loire Valley equipped with met stations and sensors coupled to grapevine parcels.
