Researchers from Italy examined the effectiveness of three fining treatments - polyvinyl polypyrrolidone PVPP , deodorising activated charcoal and zeolite - to reduce the concentrations of 4-EP and 4-EG, the compounds largely responsible for Brettanomyces spoilage, as well as their effect on the concentrations of desirable aroma volatiles in a red wine. It seems the more uncommercial a vine appears, the more appealing it is to a wine consumer which explains why old vines, despite making cracking wines, make great visual entrances to cellar doors and overall marketing tools.
The response to our call was fruitful.

If the 10-year value of the crop is below that forecast in the business plan or is unprofitable, then the vineyard should be assessed for factors contributing to the reduction in crop value. The gift giving culture means corporations can be large buyers. Durif is thin skinned, tight bunched, prone to overcropping, prone to second cropping, relatively late, and prone to botrytis, so if mismanaged, it can be quite a handful out on the farm. The annual Grape Wall Challenge is conducted in Beijing and features Chinese consumers as wine judges.
Availability Over Time. From an economic perspective, the project has shown making a purchase once versus never in a time period or nudging the diminishing return of multiple education touchpoints.
