FPS Grape Selections: Selections In Progress

This 'Selections in Progress' feature provides viticulturists, grape growers and wine makers a preview of unique or interesting varieties and clones that are in the pipeline in the Foundation Plant Services program. These grape selections will become available from the foundation vineyard in the next few years.

The selections displayed in this section of the FPS Grape Directory include plant material from abroad currently in quarantine under the aegis of the USDA and domestic selections undergoing testing and treatment destined for the California certification program. Imported grapevine material may not be released from quarantine prior to successful completion of quarantine testing. Both imported and domestic grapevines must also complete more comprehensive testing required by the California Grapevine Registration & Certification Program in order to qualify for the FPS foundation vineyard. If a selection tests positive for any of the prohibited viruses, the material must undergo disease elimination therapy. Vines undergo an even more rigorous protocol (including a requirement for microshoot tip tissue culture therapy) to qualify for the Russell Ranch Foundation Vineyard. ‘Selections in Progress’ allows for an advance peek at the material currently undergoing the testing and treatment at FPS.

One major advantage of the ‘Selections in Progress’ is avoidance of the necessity to import particular varieties or clones from abroad. Importation of grapevine plant material is often expensive and time-consuming. Notice that a desired variety or clone will soon become available in the U.S. at FPS in disease-tested form might also eliminate the temptation to smuggle possible disease-infected grapevine material into the country.

Below is a list of all the selections that are in progress at FPS.
