Comments This selection came to Foundation Plant Services in 2005 from Jorge Böhm, Viveiros Plansel S.A., Portugal. The material was JPB clone 666. The original material successfully completed testing for the Classic Foundation Vineyard and was planted there in 2009 as Loureiro PLANSEL 666. After several years as a proprietary selection, Loureiro 666 was released to the FPS public grapevine collection in 2019.
