4 1. EXECUTIVE SUMMARY In 2012, we continued working on the Action Plan for the period after recognising ADVID as the operator of the wine cluster from the Douro Region. We developed the anchor projects that had been identified during recognition of the cluster and developed communication and dissemination skills, strengthened networks, promoted the transfer of knowledge from the science and technology sector to wine companies and improved technical support to Members. Of all our 2012 activities, the following stand out: The seminar Climate Change in Wine Production: A Global Overview and Assessment of the Situation of the Douro Region at the Luso-American Foundation (Fundação Luso-Americana) in Lisbon, and at Porto Customhouse, on 12 and 13 April. In this seminar, findings from a study on the impact of climate change on viticulture in the RDD (Região Demarcada do Douro) were presented by Prof. Gregory Jones of the Department of Environmental Studies at Southern Oregon University (USA) in collaboration with ADVID. In addition, the effect of climate change in Portugal and Europe were presented by Prof. Pedro Miranda (Nova de Lisboa University) and Prof. João Santos (Trás-os-Montes and Alto Douro University), as well as the company strategy of Sogrape Vinhos SA, which was presented by Mr. George Sandeman, and Symington Family Estates, as represented by the engineer Charles Symington. The Grapevine and Wine Institute, the Douro and Porto Wine Institute, ViniPortugal and the Luso-American Foundation joined up to support this event, in addition to the Minister of Agriculture, Sea, Environment and Spatial Planning, Prof. Assunção Cristas, who chaired the seminar opening in Lisbon. Biodiversity Week (28-31 May) included the participation of Prof. Steve Wratten (Bio-Protection Research Centre of New Zealand), Dr. Howard Thistlewood (Pacific Agri-Food Research Centre of Canada), Prof. Laura Torres and Prof. Guilhermina Marques (UTAD) and the companies Real Companhia Velha, Sogevinus Fine Wines and Duorum Vinhos, represented by Mr. Rui Soares, Mr. José Manso and Mr. José Maria Soares Franco, respectively. In addition, the "Associação Portuguesa para a Diversidade da Videira" (Portuguese Association for Grapevine Diversity) participated, as represented by Dr. António Graça. Several activities were developed as follows: Bird watching session at Quinta das Carvalhas, Pinhão "Valuation of Ecosystem Services in Viticulture" workshop, Quinta do Tedo, Tabuaço. Birds and their role in biodiversity. Example of "Black Wheatear" (Bird of the Port Wine), Quinta de Castelo Melhor, Castelo Melhor. "Biodiversity - Added Value in Wine?" institutional module in Infowine.fórum2012, Vila Real. UNESCO mission reception, as an interlocutor entity, by invitation of the Minister of Agriculture, Sea, Environment and Spatial Planning. The mission was to analyse the condition of the Douro World Heritage site and the impact of 4

5 the Foz-Tua dam. This involvement culminated with an opinion about the "Impact of Hydroelectric Foz-Tua on Wine Production", as requested by the mission head for UNESCO. Raising awareness in the Secretary of State for Rural Development on the issue of Flavescence dorée phytoplasma, which culminated with the drafting of the National Action Plan to Combat Flavescence Dorée Phytoplasma by the Working Group formed for this purpose, with which ADVID became integrated. Meeting with the University of Porto in order to involve the scientific community of the largest Portuguese University in solving the winemaking problems of the Douro Region. This action resulted in a visit by 30 researchers from various colleges and research Centres from the UP in the Douro Region on 4 May and 8 October. Researchers covered issues relating to viticulture needs (mechanisation, erosion and landscape management) and oenological needs (maturity, harvest, grape-wine transfer quality, wine making and environmental management). As result, the first working theme was identified, namely, mechanisation. The ADVID 2012 award to Mr. Cincinnato Costa for his work "General phenological model to characterise the timing of flowering and veraison of Vitis vinifera L." as developed by Amber K. Parker and C. Van Leeuwen - Enita, Université de Bordeaux and I. G. de Cortázar-Atauri from the I. Chuine Fonctionelle du Centre d'ecologie et Evolutive in Montpellier. The ceremony took place at the General Assembly of 13 December 2013 at Quinta do Vallado and was attended by the honouree's granddaughter, Mrs. D. Maria Eduarda Costa Macedo, who presented the award to work coordinator Prof. van Leeuwen. We highlight two factors relevant to the development of the Viticulture of the Douro Region program from 2012: The publication of the book "A Climate Assessment for the Douro Wine Region: An Examination for the Past, Present and Future Conditions for Wine Production", which resulted from work developed within the anchor project called "Climate Changes". Knowledge transmission to RDD grapevine growers by workshops/conferences (18), training/classes (6), informational brochures (15), technical books, technical notes (1), newsletters (10) and lists of plant protection products (7). Knowledge produced and disclosed in talks/seminars and technical-scientific papers (28); A new, more functional website that provides all available information To satisfy the members' needs, the following services were implemented: Measurements of grapevine water relations, by assessing predawn leaf water potential and the Sarmento hydraulic potential; Technical support for organic viticulture as presented by 3 technicians with appropriate training and a workshop on "strategies for weed control." In short, we have taken another step to consolidate the position of ADVID as a platform for disseminating knowledge and examining issues among universities, research organisations and wine companies, which enhances 5

6 the competitiveness of the wine sector and encourages entrepreneurship and innovation. 2.

OBJECTIVES AND STRATEGY The three-year-old wine cluster of the Douro Region has the mission of streamlining and consolidating the wine production in the Douro region through a technological and sustainable strategy applied to their stakeholders, whose vision points to an "environmental, economic and socially sustainable sector, excited by a culture of network cooperation to reduce threats and optimise opportunities". To pursue the mission, Cluster Wines of RDD presents the following strategic objectives: Increase the number of associates and, consequently, the resources to develop and boost the Cluster; Promote and increase investment in R&D and company innovation through action projects to add value to grapevine-wine activities; Increase the level of technical and economical skills for the sector as a competitive advantage for the companies in Portugal and worldwide; Optimise, increase and transmit knowledge within the region as a way to improve viticultural practices, increasing the value of local human capital; Development of methods to favour the operating efficiency of grapevine-wine production; Raising public and private funding for the Region; Establish platforms of scientific knowledge and support initiatives for economic agents to innovate processes and products; Creation of services to support companies. To meet these goals, a set of initiatives was defined and integrated into an action plan focusing on the innovation, qualification and modernisation of companies in the sector, which will encourage the emergence of agglomeration economies through cooperation and networking. The action plan has a mobilising nature that potentially generates positive externalities for the cluster agents and the wine and grapevine goals include: Anchor Projects and Strategic Lines of Development, with a high degree of partner participation, both from the consortia and groups with common interests; Complementary Projects, intended for individual actions or companies in cooperation, for which incentive lines are available with positive outcomes for integrated actions within the cluster objectives; Webcasts of meetings and workshops with cluster partners and counterparts. Encouragement of Communication and Transmission of Knowledge through the production of support material, training, workshops, seminars, colloquia and participation in events to promote the works. 9

10 To monitor and evaluate the achievement of objectives, targets and indicators were defined, and the 2012 results are shown in the tables below.

11 New production processes developed Funded R&D performed Projects with SCT entity intervention Participation in international R&D programs Projects approved with public funding Creating skilled jobs - Level IV or higher Variation in workforce skill levels With respect to the negative variation in the number of affiliates, the reason is essentially related to a reduction in the number of individual members. However, there was an increase in the value generated by quotas due to a significant increase in the number of collective members, as shown in graph I Individual members Collective members Effective members Fixed shares ( 000) 106,44 123,84 128,52 111,48 113,76 104,16 102,60 105,24 107,46 118,34 113,22 Variable shares ( 000) 202,77 219,18 237,76 234,23 206,61 174,57 140,14 108,02 118,43 124,41 116,97 Total shares ( 000) 309,21 343,02 366,28 345,71 320,37 278,73 242,74 213,26 225,89 242,75 230,19 Graph 1 Evolution of Affiliation Structure 2012 With respect to other indicators, deviation occurred as a consequence of the current situation and lack of tender for public financing for the Strategic Lines of Development (anchor projects), which has implications for the various planned activities. We choose not to consider the indicators Increased spending on R&D in the Cluster, Increase the RDD attractiveness Number of visitors, Reduction of production costs or Number of companies that changed from SMEs to large companies because of the difficulty in obtaining accurate figures to measure these indicators and 11

12 also because of the current situation. 5. OPERATING RESOURCES 5.1. Human Resources The ADVID team is made up of one General Director, one Technical Director, 6 technicians and one manager.

RESEARCH AND EXPERIMENTAL DEVELOPMENT ACTIVITIES (R&D) 6.1. Anchor Projects Climate Changes The development of this anchor project was based on three complementary actions: Evaluation of the climate of the Douro Region by analysing the past, present and future climate behaviour to produce wine as well as by using the definitions of efficient adaptation and by forecasting strategy influences on wine quality. These actions, which were promoted and sponsored by the Douro Region Wine Cluster, have integrated various important players from the ClimeVineSafe projects, who had the task of developing short-term measures to mitigate the effects of climate change and support the Evolution Modelling of Wine Quality in the RDD project Impact of Climate Change on Viticulture in the Douro Region To carry out this anchor project component dedicated to understanding the climate in the Douro Region, the ADVID collaborated with prestigious American scientist Professor. Dr. Gregory Jones (Southern Oregon University), an expert on the effects of climate change on viticulture. The work consisted in the analysis, stabilisation and credibility of existing climate databases and structuring new approaches to interpret the regional climate, contributing to a better understanding, which is an essential condition for projecting future scenarios. The main 2012 results of this collaboration were the following activities: Conclusion of tasks contracted in collaboration with Professor Gregory Jones (Southern Oregon University, Oregon USA), relative to the component "Climate Assessment in the Douro Region" as well as the support for complementary studies on atmospheric circulation effects in the development of grapevine and local production, support for the development and calibration of a reference index (benchmark) to the vintage quality, product development to improve the spatial resolution of climate data for the region and the 13

15 Modelling the Evolution of RDD Wine Quality Supporting benchmark development to assess the quality of the harvest was achieved with the participation of Professor Gregory Jones by following the collaboration agreement with ADVID. Following the activity in question, the following work was prepared: Progress report of the PhD project (FEUP): "Modelação da qualidade do vinho na Região do Douro [Modelling the quality of the wine in the Douro Region]". A new method to obtain a consensus ranking of a region s vintages' quality. José Borges, António C. Real, J. Sarsfield Cabral and Gregory V. Jones. Published in the Journal of Wine Economics, Volume 7, Issue 01, May The XIX Prova Anual de Vinhos de Vindima (XIX Annual Vintage Wine Tasting) on 15, 18, 22 and 23 May 2012, at the Escola Superior de Biotecnologia (ESB) (School of Biotechnology), Porto. Sixty-six wines were tasted, 31 were "generous" and 35 fit in the Douro region. 15

(QM - Mean quality; QR - Representative Quality; TR Tinta Roriz, TN Touriga Nacional, TF Touriga Franca, TA Tinta Amarela, SO Sousão, TC Tinto Cão Management of grapevine water and heat stress This project aimed to explore the effects of different water regimes on the viticultural and oenological behaviour of the Touriga Nacional grape variety. This project started in 2012, and the Quinta dos Aciprestes, Quinta do Noval and Quintas da Canameira e Grifo were used as reference plots in the high Douro region. With the extension of the spatial monitoring of grapevine water status for the high Douro region, we sought to assess the basis for services development for members, which started in Three farms have acceded to this process (see Point 8 - Services). In brief, the objectives and work performed were completed in the Quinta dos Aciprestes (Soutelo do Douro). In this experiment, the vine water status had been monitored since 2002 and was subject to three drop-by-drop irrigation depths (0%, 30% and 60% of ETc - Corrected Potential Evapotranspiration). Predawn leaf water potential follow-up was made between June and the end of September. We observed the maturation evolution through the analysis and summary of the phenolic components. The productive parameter behaviour of the different modalities was observed in grapevines. This project included the work "Influence of climate and deficit irrigation on grapevine physiology, yield and quality attributes of the cv Touriga Nacional at Douro Region" presented at the IX Congrés International Terroirs Vitivinicoles (Dijon/Reims, France).

17 Quinta do Noval (Pinhão) In this test plot, which was installed in a vineyard organised into micro levels in rows, two modes (0% and 30% of the ETc) with three replications were investigated. The irrigation amount was lower than those of the other test sites because there was a smaller need for watering as identified by monitoring and the observation of predawn leaf water potential. We evaluated productive and qualitative parameters, and prepared a report on the results of the study at Quinta do Noval. Quinta da Canameira / Grifo (Barca d Alva) To investigate the response of the Touriga Nacional and Touriga Franca varieties in an environment with more water-stress, new observation plots were defined in 2011 in the high Douro for monitoring the predawn leaf water potential, maturation and production. In 2012, we continued observing the evolution of predawn water potential and the response of productive and qualitative parameters in terms of water stress in a study predefined by ETPc and monitored by the predawn water potential. Result reports were made and discussed with the Rozès Vinhos SA Eligible areas of grapevine crop potential The preparation and development of contacts and meetings with partners and companies with expertise in the area of remote sensing were carried out to support zoning processes and precision viticulture. The mapping of spatial analysis for physiographic parameters of the region were developed to classify the plots. Preparatory work for the implementation of a web mapping platform (transfer of information) was done to support the quality potential management of the vineyards Functional Biodiversity in Viticulture Increasing functional biodiversity in vineyards (value creation) was accomplished, which valued the establishment of ecological corridors and reduced pesticide inputs. The anchor project "Functional Biodiversity in Viticulture" is supported by three projects sponsored by different financing sources, namely "The green infrastructure in conservation biological protection against pests in the vineyard - IEE", "ECOVITIS - Maximising ecosystem services in the grapevine business," and "BioDiVine - Demonstration of functional biodiversity in the landscape". We will summarise the main 2012 achievements. These actions converge to one main goal as follows: to promote the maintenance of productive agricultural system sustainability and create value through ecosystem services. Today, the actions expected for the IEE project are part of the ECOVITIS project. 17

18 BIODIVINE (Demonstration of functional biodiversity in landscape wine - LIFE +) Monitoring Actions Monitoring arthropods The sampling location was changed; during the first year, it was located in five distinct habitats, and in the second year, it was a grapevine habitat assessment according to the composition of the landscape. For this study, the 25 sampling points were located at a distance of 1 km to permit the analysis of a buffer per sampling point of 500 m, for a total of 2000 hectares for an analysis of the landscape composition associated with the sampling point. Similar to the experiments from 2011, arthropods were monitored by using combination traps (to catch flying arthropods) and pitfall traps (for capturing terrestrial arthropods) from 25 plots located in the Cima Corgo sub region (RDD). The captured material was classified by RBA method, recorded, photographed (to create a photo library) and saved. This work was performed by the Master's student Nathan Pigeon and resulted in the preparation of his thesis, which was disclosed to members. Monitoring flora Organisation of the flora monitoring protocol and training of the Master's student, who was responsible for surveys intended for all European partners. In each of the 25 sites, flora surveys were conducted during the month of March by a Master's student who was hired for the project and developed a thesis called "Characterisation of the flora from six vineyards of Europe" on the basis of a vegetation cover comparison observed at six project demonstration sites, which includes the Douro. This work was performed by the MSc student Miren Pédehontaa, resulting in the preparation of her thesis, which was also disclosed to members. Monitoring bird life During the month of October, bird monitoring was conducted in each of the 25 plots under observation by the Laboratory of Applied Ecology team of UTAD, which was hired by ADVID for this purpose. This monitoring included visual observations and listening to the birds present in the vineyard ecosystem for approximately 10 minutes per site. Forty species of birds were observed in the vineyards, among which we highlight the following in order of decreasing abundance: the European robin, the blackbird, the warbler, the European serin, the great tit, the starling, the redstart and finches. Monitoring invertebrate biodiversity in soil 18

19 Ground cover plays an important role in soil protection (e.g., through the reduction of erosion, promotion of organic matter and filtration of water resources), and it provides other ecosystem services such as the biological control of pests and diseases, soil aeration and soil nutrient recycling. To monitor the biological activity of soil (presence of invertebrates), two portions were delimited at the top, one with and one without cover crops located in proximity to one another at Quinta do Seixo. For the monitoring, we used the easy "bait-blades" tool, which was made from a plastic stick with 16 holes containing cellulose powder plus bran and activated charcoal flakes, which, when eaten by soil invertebrates, provided an indication of biological activity in the soil. Within a given time interval, the more holes that were empty, the more bio-active the soil was. The soil analysis (routine and microbial biomass) has not yet been completed for result interpretation. Monitoring mammals The BioDivine project aims to monitor mammals in the grapevine ecosystem by using infrared (IR) cameras located along the border area in three habitats of the study (1 - riparian gallery, 2 woods, 3 - olive/vineyards with cover crops). The impact of the presence of such infrastructure in the vineyard proximity was evaluated. At the end of the first 12 weeks of monitoring, between December 2012 and February 2013, a brief assessment of collected material was done with short films recorded when mammals crossed the area by using IR cameras. In descending order of frequency records, we highlight the presence of the following mammals: 1 st rabbit (164 records), 2 nd fox (68 records), 3 rd boar (29 records), 4 th mouse (20 records), 5 th ferret (6 records) and 6 th hedgehog (4 records). We found that all three habitats located in the monitored vineyards captured a large number of videos. The highest frequency of records was observed in one of the olive tree orchards with ground cover, most likely because this orchard is connected to a large wooded area. Implementation of conservation actions Demonstration actions were prepared (in relation to ground cover, redefinition of headlands, hedge installation and mating disruption for grape moths). In December 2012, ADVID launched a bid for its members to take advantage of funding (50%) to implement 5 conservation actions for the promotion of ecosystem services: C1-ground cover, C2-installation of hedges, C3- promoting biodiversity, C4-use of non-chemical control methods (pheromones for mating disruption), C5- reorganisation of headlands. Three of these five actions were adopted to a greater extent by members, namely the C1-ground cover (expected 12.5 hectares of green cover), C2-installation of hedges (planned to install 2600 metres of hedgerows) and C4-use of non-chemical control methods (planned to install 22 hectares of pheromones). Two of these actions are to be implemented in the spring of 2013 (C2 and C4). 19

20 Dissemination of actions Development of the project webpage available at At the Conference OILB "Landscape management for functional biodiversity" held on 7 and 10 May 2012 in Lleida (Spain), the paper Monitoring arthropod diversity in Douro wine region vineyards was presented. Measures to disseminate the preliminary results on 3 September and 25 October for ADVID members. Workshop "Instalação de sebes no ecossistema vitícola" (Installation of hedgerows in the grapevine ecosystem), 29 October, Pinhão. Management and monitoring meeting in Villafranca de Penedes (Catalonia - Spain) on 10 and 11 May. Follow-up and project management meeting in Limoux (France) on 17 and 18 October EcoVitis - Maximising ecosystem services in viticulture Monitoring the impact of ecological infrastructures with chromotropic traps To assess the impact of woods on the presence of arthropods in the vineyard and thereby explain its importance in the infrastructure of the project, we placed yellow sticky traps in two plots of Quinta das Carvalhas and in one plot of Quinta de Arnozelo in early May. In the Quinta das Carvalhas plots, there were three modes, each of which had four replicates (i.e., traps), according to how distant they were from the woods: 0, 25 m and 50 m. In the Quinta do Arnozelo, the same distances were used although only one trap was set at 0 m as a consequence of logistical issues. Three traps were set at each of the other two distances. The traps were observed weekly for a total of 24 weeks to record the captured arthropods. These arthropods totalled 13,286 individuals, which were distributed along the different distances/replicates that were screened to identify their order or, when possible, their family. We also separated them by trophic groups, i.e., parasitoids, predators, phytophagous and unknown, as we proceeded with the material sampled in Impact assessment of ecological infrastructure in the presence of grape moth parasitoids At two different time intervals (May-June and September-October), which represents the 1 st and 3 rd generations of the grape moth, and in various locations of the farms that comprise the project, caterpillars were collected to be grown under lab conditions in order to obtain parasitoids and evaluate their importance. Collection was not made during the 2 nd generation because of their low incidence during that year of analysis. In total, 743 moth specimens were collected, of which 41.7% were parasitised. A total of 91.4% of the parasitoids were Elachertus affinis. The remaining specimens were sent to the Natural History Museum of Paris to be identified by entomologist Dr. Claire 20
