Abstract


Aims: The present study was aimed at the identification, differentiation and characterization of indigenous yeasts isolated from Tenerife vineyards (viticulture region that has never been characterized before). Microbiota were studied from 14 samples taken during fermentations carried out in the 2002 vintage, from 11 wineries belonging to five wine regions on Tenerife Island. Methods and Results: Yeasts' strains were identified and characterized through restriction analysis of the 5.8S-internal transcribed spacer region and the mitochondrial DNA. At the beginning of alcoholic fermentation, 26 yeast species were found, where 14 species were present in significant frequencies in only one sample. Likewise, the Saccharomyces cerevisiae strains isolated are very specific, as they were only present in one wine region. Conclusions: There were isolated specific yeasts from each region on Tenerife Island. The founded yeasts may be responsible for distinctive and interesting properties of the studied wines. Significance and Impact of the Study: This study forms part of an extensive taxonomic survey within the ecological framework of vineyards in Tenerife. This investigation is an essential step towards the preservation and exploitation of the hidden oenological potential of the untapped wealth of yeast biodiversity in the grape growing regions of this island. The results obtained demonstrate the value of using molecular genetic methods in taxonomic and ecological surveys. The results also shed some light on the ecology and oenological potential of S. cerevisiae strains isolated from this unique environment.
