PRIX SPECIAL DU JURY - VITI-TUNNEL / MO.DEL SAS
is a retractable waterproof tunnel for the automatic sheltering of vine rows during rain and extreme weather events. It enables the vine to be managed without anti-mildew, anti-black-rot or anti-Phomopsis fungicides, while guaranteeing protection against crop loss due to fungal diseases, frost and hail.
Viti-Tunnel is a response to the search for alternative methods to drastically reduce the use of phytosanitary products, without modifying the land’s pedoclimatic environment or the typicity of the wine. At the same time, in a context of global climate change making extreme weather events more likely, Viti-Tunnel also represents a solution to protect against crop losses caused by such conditions.
Vitipince is a tool that can be fitted to a mini-digger type mechanical arm for uprooting and then planting a new vine. This tool combines several functions. All the tasks involved in complantation can be performed in a single pass with the same tool, where previously four passes were required: uprooting the stock, its collection, planting the new vine, and finally, staking, sleeving and adding a little fertiliser. In the closed position, the clamp forms a claw which can be used to loosen the soil even in very stony ground.

A wooden container of cask or tank type for maturation and vinification, with a thermoregulation system integrated into the thickness of the staves
TROPHÉES D'ARGENT - Catégorie Vigne et Vin - Contenant en bois de type foudre ou cuve destiné à l’élevage et la vinification équipé d’un système de thermorégulation intégré dans l’épaisseur des douelles / TARANSAUD
This innovation comprises a wooden container designed for the fermentation, maturation and storage of alcoholic beverages such as wine or spirits, equipped with a thermoregulation system integrated into the thickness of the wooden material from which the container is made. The heat exchanger integrated into the wood acts uniformly on the alcoholic beverage being fermented or matured. The heat exchanger is then no longer in direct contact with the liquid, instead taking advantage of the wood’s conductivity to maintain a uniform temperature across the liquid in the container. This equipment can be used to heat or cool the liquid, or maintain it at the desired temperature. The absence of an exchanger inside the container makes routine operations, such as cap punching and stirring, possible without any constraints. Cleaning the container after use is made easier since hard-to-reach areas are eliminated.
IFV – INRAE with ISP
30240 LE GRAU DU ROI
The product of a collaboration between IFV and INRAE within UMT Minicave, Vinimag is the first automated device for the vinification of red grapes at small scale (<1 kg). This robot designed by IFV and INRAE delivers on the challenge of controlling red grape fermentation (in the heterogeneous phase) at the kg scale. Around a collaborative robotic arm called a cobot, 60 fermenters with independent temperature regulation, an online monitoring station (weighing and colour) and an automated additive and homogenisation station operate completely autonomously throughout the fermentation process. In addition, vinification at this smaller scale allows grapes to be kept frozen in 1 kg batches, to perform vinification all year round. Vinimag is the only automated system in the world to date for red grape vinification at the 1 kg scale, allowing reproducible screening for multiple applications (oenological screening of varieties, yeast strains, etc.). This boosting of experimental capacities allows IFV and INRAE to respond more quickly to the current challenges facing the sector. The video: https://youtu.be/AS3cYFNXJxc shows our approach and what is possible with Vinimag.

ECOBANG-SUR-MESURE: low-cost, low-tech phytosanitary effluent treatment
CITATIONS - Catégorie Techniques Culturales - ECOBANG-SUR-MESURE : le low-cost et low-tech du traitement des effluents phytosanitaires / VENTO-SOL
Having treated their crops, farmers generate phytosanitary effluents during sprayer emptying and washing operations. Vento-Sol has developed the ECOBANG solution which allows effluents to evaporate while stored in closed tanks. The operating principle is based on forced ventilation inside the tank: a ventilation system blows air into the tank (the ventilation rate depends on the size of the tank), the air exhausting through a stack. This forced ventilation evaporates the water. ECOBANG-SUR-MESURE is the only solution that can be adapted to any type of tank.
The equipment is built in the Tarn, in France.
IFV - GES&Vit calculating tool
30240 LE GRAU DU ROI
CITATIONS - Catégorie Vigne et Vin - outil de calcul GES&Vit / IFV
GES&Vit is an online tool for calculating the carbon footprint of a winegrowing business. It can be used for a vineyard's initial operating diagnostic and to calculate different change scenarios, in order to identify effective ways of reducing greenhouse gas emissions. The scope of the method covers grape harvesting, integrating all direct emissions (CO2, CH4, N2O, carbon stored in the soil) and indirect upstream emissions linked to the use of inputs and equipment (fuel, fertiliser, phytosanitary products, trellising elements, etc.) generated by grape production. The aim is to provide an easy-to-use tool for technical advisers, design offices, interprofessional organisations, cooperatives, agricultural college instructors, and anyone not expert in winegrowing’s carbon footprint. The tool incorporates set methodological options and default settings, enabling users to collect the data available in the vineyard (number of passes, types of tool, tractor power, amounts of fertiliser and phytosanitary products, etc.). GES&Vit calculates the emissions generated on 1 hectare of vines, for up to three different driving modes. Emissions for the entire vineyard are extrapolated based on the area covered by the three driving modes employed in the vineyard and the distance from each plot to the main operating base (transportation of machinery and workforce by road).

TPPV - potential volatile phenol content
30240 LE GRAU DU ROI
Determining TPPV is a new approach, developed by IFV, for the control of volatile phenols in wines. These compounds are responsible for loss of quality of varying degrees of severity, including loss of fruit aromas and the appearance of animal notes. The TPPV denotes the maximum amount of volatile phenols that could be produced in a given vintage. Determining the TPPV in different wines shows that certain vintages, following alcoholic fermentation, present a risk of volatile phenols below the threshold of perception while others present a risk which can exceed ten times this threshold. Oenological monitoring can then be adapted as a result.
PMH Vinicole - grape harvesting pump
CITATIONS - Catégorie Vigne et Vin - PMH Vinicole, pompe à vendange / PMH VINICOLE
PMH Vinicole specialises in pumping technology for the wine sector and in 2009 developed the Oenopompe wine pump, a leader in the high-end segment. The pump sector has been dominated by technologies that have proved themselves over time, such as peristaltic, vane, piston and elliptical rotor pumps. All have in common an undesirable pulsating flow effect and very often require the use of a dampener to minimise pulsation. Using a pulsation dampener has the effect of increasing the risk of bacterial contamination due to the difficulty of rinsing; moreover, the harvest is shaken, often crushed, and oxidises much more quickly. To be able to address these new quality requirements, cellar operators are looking for a product adapted to each harvest reception configuration, combining mechanical efficiency and pumping quality. For two years, the Research & Development teams of PMH Vinicole have been developing an innovative and revolutionary harvesting pump - the Heli-X - comprising a bilobe helical rotor. This pump does away completely with the need for a pulsation dampener. Heli-X respects the integrity of the harvest and minimises juice oxidation and potential bacterial pollution.
Delta Vistalys Ruby
49290 CHALONNES SUR LOIRE
Bucher Vaslin offers a new optical sorting system allowing selection of already de-stemmed grape berries. An initial Bucher Vaslin machine had optical selection functionality allowing the user to choose to retain only healthy, intact berries, and eliminating foreign bodies, plant debris and immature berries. Now Bucher Vaslin pushes the boundaries of optical sorting (patent pending) with a new optical sorting machine, Delta Vistalys Ruby, offering completely different functionality. In effect, the machine can yield two distinct batches depending on the maturity of the berries. The principle is based on the anthocyanin concentration of the grape skins.
DIEMME ENOLOGIA SPA
lesslees filter drain
48022 LUGO (RAVENNA) ITALY
CITATIONS - Catégorie Vigne et Vin - Drain Filtrant lesslees / DIEMME ENOLOGIA SPA
Drain with filtering membrane and AISI 316 sintered stainless steel structure for reducing solids in the must/extracted wine. The physical functioning of the filter drain is very simple; the pressure membrane exerts pressure on the grapes, producing must. This pressure forces the liquid through the filtering structure whose porosity varies depending on the customer's technical goal. Solids bigger than the absolute porosity of the structure therefore remain in the marc inside the pneumatic press, while those smaller than the absolute porosity of the structure are dispersed in the must. Solids are defined as all solid particles dispersed in the must. This physical characteristic correlates directly with the amount of fresh must deposit produced; it can be quantified by various analyses including centrifugation and turbidity measurement (the quantity of solids expressed as NTUs). Turbidity is characterised by different types of solid particles, with a very wide quantitative distribution.
