Over the course of human history and in most societies, fermented beverages have had a unique economic and cultural importance. Before the arrival of the first Europeans in Australia, Aboriginal people reportedly produced several fermented drinks including mangaitch from flowering cones of Banksia and way-a-linah from Eucalyptus tree sap. In the case of more familiar fermented beverages, numerous microorganisms, including fungi, yeast and bacteria, present on the surface of fruits and grains… 
Temporal Comparison of Microbial Community Structure in an Australian Winery
Amplicon-based phylotyping was used to map microbial communities within an Australian winery, before, during and after the 2020 vintage, revealing that microbial population structures may reflect the nature of the product created in each facility.
Identification of new ethanol‐tolerant yeast strains with fermentation potential from central Patagonia
The genetic and phenotypic diversity of yeast isolates obtained from Central Chilean Patagonia and analyzed their fermentation potential under different fermentative conditions found that L. cidri is a novel candidate species to ferment wine and mead, exceeding the fermentation capacity of a commercial strain.
Metagenomic Investigation Uncovers Presence of Probiotic-Type Microbiome in Kalparasa® (Fresh Unfermented Coconut Inflorescence Sap)
Kalparasa containing large population of Leuconostoc mesenteroides, Fructobacillus fructosus, Saccharomyces cerevisiae, and Hanseniaspora guilliermondii can be promoted as a healthy “unfermented” plant edible food containing live probiotic-type microbiome during its consumption.
Mozzarella Whey Indigenous Yeasts and their Potential in Amino acid and Peptide Production through Fermentation
Indigenous yeast is one of the microorganisms that naturally live on whey and has the potential to be reapplied in whey fermentation to produce amino acids and peptides, which show various benefits including health benefits.
Yeasts from temperate forests
Yeasts are ubiquitous in temperate forests. While this broad habitat is well‐defined, the yeasts inhabiting it and their life cycles, niches, and contributions to ecosystem functioning are less
Late Pleistocene-dated divergence between South Hemisphere populations of the non-conventional yeast L. cidri.
The idea of a Pleistocene-dated divergence between South Hemisphere lineages, where the Nothofagus and Araucaria ecological niches likely favoured the extensive distribution of L. cidri in Patagonia, is supported.


From vineyard to winery: a source map of microbial diversity driving wine fermentation
It is shown that microbial communities in harvested juice and ferments vary significantly across regions, and that while vineyard fungi account for ∼40% of the source of this diversity, uncultivated ecosystems outside of vineyards also prove a significant source.
The Grapevine and Wine Microbiome: Insights from High-Throughput Amplicon Sequencing
The contribution of high-throughput next generation sequencing and metagenomics approaches to vineyard microbial ecology especially unraveling the influence of vineyard management practices on microbial diversity is highlighted.
Pyrosequencing reveals regional differences in fruit-associated fungal communities
Deep community pyrosequencing approaches are used, targeted at the 26S rRNA gene, to examine the richness and composition of fungal communities associated with grapevines and test for geographical community structure among four major regions in New Zealand (NZ).
Taxonomic and Functional Characterization of the Microbial Community During Spontaneous in vitro Fermentation of Riesling Must
Community variation relating to three points is explored: how microbial communities vary by vineyard; how community biodiversity changes during alcoholic fermentation; and how microbial community varies between musts that successfully complete alcoholic fermentation and those that become ‘stuck’ in the process.
Brewhouse-Resident Microbiota Are Responsible for Multi-Stage Fermentation of American Coolship Ale
It is demonstrated that ACA exhibits a conserved core microbial succession in absence of inoculation, supporting the role of a resident brewhouse microbiota and establishing this core microbial profile of spontaneous beer fermentations as a target for production control points and quality standards for these beers.
Wine microbiology is driven by vineyard and winery anthropogenic factors
The non‐targeted chemical analysis of musts and wines by FT‐ICR‐MS showed that the wines could be discriminated at the end of alcoholic fermentation as a function of adding SO2 or not, but also and above all as afunction of phytosanitary protection, regardless of whether these fermentations took place in the presence of SO2or not.
Yeasts associated with the production of Mexican alcoholic nondistilled and distilled Agave beverages.
This minireview focuses on several nondistilled and distilled Agave beverages, their production area, the Agave species used in their elaboration, the functional microbiota involved in the fermentation process, their fermentation products (when known), the biochemical changes of these unique fermentations, and their impact on the quality and sensorial characteristics of the product.
