Aim of the project is the achievement of new virus-free selections of wine grapevine cultivars, officially recognized by the Ministry of Agricultural Policies and registered in National Catalogue of Grapevine Variety. Alongside, a new typology of scion mother plant vineyard (PMM) and nursery (VFT) is developed in order to maintain and guarantee the healthy status of the selection during propagation. The PMM vineyard is cultivated under insect-proof net tunnels and organized to be managed without any contact with the outside as well as the VFT. The final target is the production of selected propagation material in a close cycle with the maximum protection against virus and phytoplasmas.
