Interests: wine science; wine microbiology; alcoholic fermentation; grape/wine microbial ecology
Special Issues, Collections and Topics in MDPI journals
The current advances in “omics” technologies and analytical techniques have allowed a better understanding of the grape/wine microbial ecology and have revealed new insights into wine microbiology. We have now started to explore the structure of microbial assemblages in vineyards, grapes, and wineries with the aim of better understanding the complex microbial functions and interactions during winemaking. Despite these advances, our current knowledge on the diverse and crucial roles of different microbial species and strains in wine production, quality, and safety is still limited. A number of questions regarding the particular role of individual microorganisms or possible microbial interactions during wine production remain to be addressed. Microbes may also negatively affect wine quality during processing and storage. Spoilage by Dekkera bruxellensis, for instance, still remains a challenge for winemakers.
The current Special Issue will publish recent advancements in wine microbiology and biotechnology, regarding both grape/wine microbial ecology and all relative aspects of wine technology.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All submissions that pass pre-check are peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Foods is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 2200 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
