Brief historical review

The research group that has generated this collection began in 1989 to develop works on oenological microbiology, financed with national and regional projects. The main works carried out deal with the selection of oenological microorganisms, fermentation stops, studies of oenological ecosystems and control of wine-spoiling microorganisms.
