Previous commercial studies carried out in New Zealand showed that mechanical shaking significantly reduced the incidence of Botrytis cinerea infection in wine grapes. However, the reasons behind this reduction are not well understood. Here, we employed a metabolomics approach to gain insights into the biochemical changes that occur in grape berries due to mechanical shaking. Berry samples were analyzed using three different analytical approaches including gas chromatography and mass spectrometr...
