Soil qualities and rootstocks are among the main factors that have been acknowledged to influence grape development as well as fruit and wine composition. Despite the role of soil and rootstock in establishing a successful vineyard in terms of grape quality, almost no molecular evidence linking soil and rootstock properties to the gene expression have been reported. The transcriptome variation in response to different soils and rootstocks was investigated through microarray technology. The cv. Pinot Noir was grown on different soils: sand, turf, andvineyard soil. The plantswere grafted onthe contrasting 101-14 and1103 Paulsen rootstocks. The modulation of genes’ expression in response to different soils and rootstocks was evaluated considering their potentialimpactonprimary(carbohydrate)andsecondary(phenylpropanoid)metabolisms.Thisstudyhighlights a link among soil composition, rootstock, and gene expression. The results open a perspective for a molecular interpretation of the interaction between soil and grapevine.
