A respectful and sustainable viticulture

Committed for several years to the ecological transition, the wine sector has been able to change its practices for a respectful and sustainable culture.

In order to support you in this transition and in the implementation of different labels, we find effective solutions for vineyard diagnostics. From the vine to the wine to the cellar, we help you to best manage the risks related to phytopathogens and contaminants during the winemaking phase.

What do we detect?

We can detect a number of diseases
vines such as oidium, mildew, Botrytis, flavescence dorée, Phylloxera

We have developed markers that track beneficial microflora during grape fermentation (Saccharomyces cerevisae, Oenococcus oeni, indigenous yeasts…) as well as contaminating yeasts and bacteria (Brettanomyces bruxellensis, Pediococcus damnosus, lactic acid and acetic bacteria).

Analytical methods for all actors in the wine sector

  • Independent winemaker and winemaker
  • Oenologist
  • Cooperative winery
  • Analysis laboratory
  • Merchant


Detection can be done from a large number of arrays:

  • Vineyard (fig leaf, vine wood, soil…)
  • Grapes (flesh, skin, whole…)
  • Liquid (wine, rinse water, irrigation water, density bath…)
  • Equipment (pruning tool, transport crate, conveyor belt…)

Detection of Brettanomyces bruxellensis by Digital PCR

IAGE has partnered with the ICV Group, which supports winemakers at all stages of their winemaking to help winemakers spot traces of Brettanomyces with the DIGI brett® project.

Diagnostic follow-up throughout the year

  • Winter rest to assess the biological health of your soils (fungal and bacterial biomass) and quantify residual inocula of phytopathogens.
  • Vegetative cycle of the vine to detect diseases early and evaluate the effectiveness of your phytosanitary treatments and biocontrols.
  • Fermentation of the grapes to control the quality of the must, the foot of the vat, the alcoholic and malolactic fermentation.
  • Maturation of the wine to avoid alterations of the wine.
