FPS Grape Registry: Grapevine Varieties

Foundation Plant Services (FPS) has an extensive and diverse grapevine collection with 567 varieties used for wine, food, juices, raisins and rootstock. Each selection planted in the foundation vineyard has undergone a rigorous disease-testing protocol and, in most cases, professional identification.

FPS names its public grapevine selections with variety names most commonly used by the grapevine nursery trade and sources offering the grapes to grape growers and other interested parties in the United States. You will see synonym names in the profile for each grape variety below. Some of those synonyms may have been used historically by growers and winemakers in other countries or regions, even though not technically correct by today's advanced identification technologies. The synonym list is designed to guide your search in light of those historical traditions.

The grape variety profiles also include detail such as species, country of origin, pedigree (if known), uses, berry color and TTB-approved name. References to source information for the data allow you to explore your grape variety of interest in further detail, should you wish to do that.

To locate a particular wine, table, raisin, or juice variety or grape rootstock, please click on the first letter of the variety name or below on the entire name. You will see a complete list and description of the available FPS selections for each variety under the variety profile. The description reveals key facts about each selection such as its origin and year of arrival at FPS. There is an indication of whether the selection is included in the Russell Ranch Foundation vineyard.
