Serious research over the last two decades on microbial diversity has generated dazzling conclusions for its potential applications towards a new future. Among them, the vineyard has been shown to be a potential reservoir of microbiological biodiversity. In particular, the vineyards cultivated in an organic production system are responsible for a higher yeast diversity than conventional vineyards. This great diversity of yeasts (but also of other fungi and bacteria) has potential uses not only as a tool for exploitation, for example, in the oenological field, but also in the industrial sector and even in solving problems such as mitigating the effects of climate change or wastewater purification.
