Comments Vermentino 02 came to Foundation Plant Services in 2007 from the National Clonal Germplasm Repository, Davis, where it is known by the synonym name Vermentino Favorita (DVIT 1002 – see also DVIT 545). Favorita is a synonym name for Vermentino, and that synonym name is used mainly in the Piemonte and Liguria regions of Italy. The original plant material was donated to the NCGR in 1983 by Dr. Harold Olmo (Professor, UC Davis). The plant material had previously been maintained in the vineyard of the Department of Viticulture & Enology, University of California, Davis, at locations D7:19-21 and X37:11-12. The original material tested positive for virus and underwent microshoot tip tissue culture therapy in 2008. The treated material qualified for the FPS foundation vineyard in 2012. This selection originated from the same source vine (D7: 19-21) in the Department vineyard as Vermentino 01. Vermentino 02 does test positive for Rupestris stem pitting virus.
