  • General phenological model to characterize thetiming of flowering and veraison of Vitisvinifera L.Un modèle phénologique pour caractériser la floraison et la véraison deVitis vinifera L.Parker A., García de Cortázar-Atauri I.,van Leeuwen C. and Chuine I.Australian Journal of Grape and Wine Research 17, 206-216, 2011
  • The timing of phenology is a majorquality factor in viticulture• Too late ripening -> green and acidic wines• Too early ripening -> unbalanced wines lackingaromas• Ideally, complete ripeness is achieved at theend of the season :– September / October Northern hemisphere– March / April Southern hemisphere
  • Growers can influence the timing ofripeness• By choosing early orlate ripeningvarieties
  • Adaptation of plant material andviticultural practices to obtain the righttiming of phenology• Can be assessed through trial and error• Can be assessed through phenologicalmodelling
  • Potential applications of phenologymodelling• Adaptation ofplant material toclimaticvariations insidea growing region• Adaptation ofplant material toclimate changeSource : Bois 2007Source : meteo France
  • Existing phenological models• Growing Degree Days (Winkler)• Huglin Index
  • Existing models can be improved• Larger data bases– In this study 4030 phenology observations from :• 123 locations (France, Switzerland, Italy, Greece)• 81 varieties• 48 vintages• Meteo data < 5 km in distance ; < 100 m inaltitude• Improved modelling techniques based on themathematic Metropolis algorithm andcomputational power– Phenology Modelling Platform (I. Chuine)
  • 4 models were tested• Spring Warming (~ GDD) starting at 1st ofJanuary– 3 parameters• Spring Warming with unfixed parameters– 3 parameters• UniFORC– 4 parameters• UniCHILL– 7 parameters

  • This new phenology model is calledGrapevine Flowering Veraison Model (GFV)• Summation of daily averagetemperatures• Counting starts at DOY 60 (1st ofMarch)• Base temperature 0°C• Remains easy to use

  • Portugese varieties• We do not have a lot of data onPortugese varieties• We would be happy to receive phenologydata with corresponding daily climaticdata, particularly for:– Touriga nacional– Touriga franca
  • Work under progress• We are currently testing the model forripeness• We are also working on a classificationfor a broad range of varieties (~ 100)and we would be very hapy to includePortugese varieties
  • Conclusion• GFV phenology model– easy to use– performs better than existing models– Generic model across varieties• t0 : DOY 60• Tb : 0°C• Powerful tool for the classification of the precocityof grapevine varieties• Matching grapevine varieties to local climaticvariations• Matching grapevine varieties to a changing climate
