Research Interests & Projects
Dr Castellarin’s laboratory investigates the ripening processes in wine grapes and the biological mechanisms that determine fruit composition and wine quality. By examining how berry ripening and grape composition evolve in the vineyard under different environmental conditions, we can develop new viticultural strategies for enhancing desirable grape berry qualities. Such strategies are crucial for identifying optimal conditions for growing premium grapes in BC and Canada.
