In life sciences, metabolomics, as the comprehensive study of metabolic reactions in biology has grown very rapidly and integrates the knowledge of earlier developed omics-branches such as genomics, proteomics, and transcriptomics. The complex metabolic composition of grapes and related wines results from a close interplay between environmental, genetic and human factors which are not easily or possibly resolvable into their unambiguous individual contributions. In addition, bottles of wine appear as remarkable examples of combinatorial chemistry which can occur in such sealed micro-laboratories, the analysis of which requires non-targeted analyses by ultrahigh resolution mass spectrometry. Metabolomics is thus needed to decipher the chemodiversity of grapevine, grape juices or wine. On the other hand, the wine proteome is the entire set of proteins produced either by grapevine or by wine microorganisms such as yeast and lactic acid bacteria. Phytopathogenic microorganisms can also interact with the wine proteome by secreting their own proteins or by degrading some vine and wine proteins. Metabolomics and proteomics have already been applied to the analysis of grape berries during ripening, of grapevine tissues, grape berries or yeast under environmental stresses. These have also been used to the compositional study of wines as modified by aging in barrels, oxidation, as well as for the characterization of ancient wines or whiskies (archaeochemistry).
Original and review papers dealing with all aspects of metabolomics or proteomics applied to the study of the chemical composition of grapevine, grape juices and wines are welcome for inclusion in this Special Issue of Beverages.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Beverages is an international peer-reviewed open access quarterly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) is waived for well-prepared manuscripts submitted to this issue. Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
