  1. Wake Up and Smell the Future Bottling Innovation: Increasing the Profile and Profitability of Viticulture & Oenology in Canada Donald Ziraldo Thursday, May 24 2007

  2. Icewine

  3. Behind the Scenes…Research Brock University CCOVI Research Labs

  4. CCOVI (Inniskillin Hall) • Brock University in Niagara • Cool Climate Oenology/Viticulture Institute opened July 11,1999 • Degree Program • Post Graduate research • “Stage” (co-op program) • Research scientists

  5. CCOVI – The Work

  6. CCOVI – The Enoteca

  7. Niagara College & ResearchNIAGARA-ON-THE-LAKE CAMPUS • Industry-Led Applied Research • Tourism & Hospitality research • Production Winery for teaching and research • Wine Education Centre: • Vineyards & Viticulture Research • Greenhouse & Photonics Research

  8. Niagara Culinary Institute

  9. OntarioGrape and Wine Research Coordinating Committee • Organized in 2000 • Industry, academics and scientists • Coordinates all grape and wine research • “Grape and Wine Research Foundation” established in 2007 for funding

  10. National Grape and Wine Research Strategy • Secretariat formed 2007 • Officially announced Ottawa May 10 • Currently BC and Ontario • Focus is on national priorities: • Genetic research • Enology • Icewine fermentation/yeast

  11. Vineland Renaissance (Vineland Research Station celebrated 100th anniversary) The Niagara Cool Climate & Greenbelt Research & Innovation Centre Chair: Donald Ziraldo

  12. Vineland Vision • A pest free (disease/insects) tender fruit, grape, floriculture industry. • Cold hardiness plants (outdoors & under glass). • A modelfor agri-food research & innovation centres • A year-round supply of local produce • Greenbeltthink tank& socio-economic research team • Enhancements in Culinary Tourism • Bioactive compounds and neutraceuticals for health

  15. Wine and Health: • Can drinking wine really be good for you? • French Paradox: on CBS 60 minutes Three potential mechanisms: Antioxidants, Blood lipid fractions, Platelets • Discovery of resveratrol

  16. Resveratrol • Research discovered that Resveratrol stimulates activity of sirtuin enzyme • Sirtuin extends cell life span in yeast by 70% • In humans, Sirtuin controls the aging and life span of a cell, promote cell survival, and are involved in DNA repair

  17. The J-Curve Risk of Dying (Mortality) 0 4 Number of Drinks Per Day

  18. Resveratrol • Anti-cholesterol • Anti-viral • Anti-heart disease • Anti-inflammatory • Anti-dementia • Anti-cancer • Blood pressure • Blood sugar normalizing agent

  19. Wine Spectator • May 4,07,Journal of Biological Chemistry • Resveratrol found to kill human leukemia and lymphoma cells cultured in a lab • The compound, a type of anthocyanidin left healthy blood cells alone

  20. Resveratrol Capsules

  26. Partners and Collaborators Remote Sensing and Weather Data Integrated On-line System for Vineyard Management

  27. Infrared Photography • Monitoring the vineyard shows winter injury. • Research uses various digital imaging techniques to analyze vineyard data.

  28. Partners and Collaborators “Monitoring Winter Injury in the Vineyardand the use of wind machines”

  29. The Study • Cold-hardiness of grapes. • 6 European wine grape (Vitis vinifera L.) cultivars. • 2 locations in Niagara. • Low-temperature exotherm (LTE) analysis. • Ambient Air Temperature.

  30. Vineyard Temperatures Jan 29, 2007 8°C Ice Wine 14°C Winter Injury

  31. Provenance of Food “People these days want fresh local produce, the provenance of food is becoming an ever more important aspect of the food we eat.” Chef Jamie Kennedy

  32. Terroir/Local • Organic/Biodynamic • Respect for the land • Mimic nature • Environmental stewardship(Greenbelt) • Trickle down effect; reduce fuel miles • Slow Food • Sustainability of farmers • Culinary tourism
