When wine has a thirst for research

Red, white, rosé... sweet, dry, sparkling... since man first sought to master the production and storage of wine, science has played a central role. How does the taste of a wine develop? Where do its aromas come from? By looking at vines, their genomes, varieties, grapes, bacteria or yeasts, INRA scientists are uncovering the secrets of this extraordinarily complex mixture, in order to improve its quality.

"When wine has a thirst for research" is a special report from INRA News Office, on current INRA research on wine.
