The viticultural Valais is an emblematic field of research for viticulture. It is an ampelological mise en abyme that sheds light on all the other vineyards in the world. Concerns about global warming, distrust of chemical treatments, boom in 'organic' wines... More than ever, ecological concerns are at the heart of viticulture and consumer expectations. But basically, what is at stake in this relationship between vine and nature? How is a vine still natural? How and to what extent reintegrate nature into the vineyard? This book presents a body of knowledge and points of view on the subject, on the scale of Valais, the most important wine-growing region of Switzerland. The views of 17 scientists look at the evolution of climatic data, the life of flora and fauna, the influence of soils and rocks. They are interested in the role of agricultural policy, the history of integrated production, the challenges of organic farming, the biodynamic movement and the emergence of hybrid grape varieties. A complete and current interdisciplinary lighting, which tells the nature of the vine 'between the lines of culture'.


The perfectly informed authors of this book are researchers, historians, engineers who present to us the latest state of research on viticulture: its impact on flora and fauna, on landscapes and the economy; its evolution over time, its advertising representation, etc.
