The aim of this work was to evaluate the fungal populations of some environments dedicated to the fermentation, storage, and bottling of wine. Air samples of six wineries, three family-run and three industrial, located in Oltrepo Pavese (northern Italy) and Sottoceneri (Switzerland), were collected on a monthly basis for nine months. In addition to total fungal counts, the fungal taxa of air, walls, and barrel samples were determined. The indoor air fungal contamination was, in general, greater… 
Survey of viable airborne fungi in wine cellars of Tokaj, Hungary
The composition of fungal biota and air quality of five traditional subterranean wine cellars and one store building of a modern wine production facility were examined in the Tokaj wine region
Concentrations of viable airborne fungal spores and trichloroanisole in wine cellars.
Qualitative survey of fungi isolated from wine‐aging environment
The study of the qualitative composition of fungal population in some cellar environments: superficial and inner layer of oak barrels, wall surfaces and aging wine and the influence of age of barrels and winery climatic conditions was evaluated.
Indoor air bacterial and fungi bioburden in an electronic factory, an office and a winery in Malaysia
Background: Microbial loads differ for different work environments and it is greatly influenced by the manufacturing processes involved. Objectives: This study aimed to assess microbial loads and
Influence of Winery Age and Design on the Distribution of Airborne Molds in Three Rioja Wine Cellars
The presence of molds in the winery is of concern for winemakers, as molds can be responsible for ochratoxin A and cork taint in wines. The presence of airborne molds was analyzed in four different
Monitoring Seasonal Changes in Winery-Resident Microbiota
The majority of the surface communities before and after harvest comprised organisms with no known link to wine fermentations and a near-absence of spoilage-related organisms, suggesting that winery surfaces do not overtly vector wine spoilage microbes under normal operating conditions.
Characterization of cultivated fungi isolated from grape marc wastes through the use of amplified rDNA restriction analysis and sequencing
Despite the fact that some of the species identified may potentially act as pathogens, measures such as the avoidance of maintaining large and unprocessed quantities of grape marc wastes in premises without adequate aeration, together with its suitable biological treatment, could eliminate any pertinent health risks.
These fungal counts were recovered from the soil at 30 cm depth which indicates an alarming situation for deep-rooted crops to soilborne fungal pathogens infestation in future.
A Rapid Assay to Detect Toxigenic Penicillium spp. Contamination in Wine and Musts
The results encourage the use of the newly developed method in the pre-screening of fresh and processed grapes for the presence of Penicillium DNA before the evaluation of related toxins.
Kytococcus sedentarius and Micrococcus luteus: highly prevalent in indoor air and potentially deadly to the immunocompromised - should standards be set?
This study investigation into the type and concentrations of bacteria in the indoor and outdoor environments of an electronic factory, an office and a winery in Malaysia finds that opportunistic bacteria, such as the kytococci and the micrococci, may also have a potential role in instigating subclinical, more subtle symptoms of disease in inmmunocompetent individuals.
