Comments Foundation Plant Services entered into an exchange agreement for a series of Greek grape selections as a result of a seminar on Greek wines held at UC Davis in 2013. Fassoulis Grapevine Nursery from Nemea in the Peloponnese region of Greece participated in the seminar and afterward agreed to donate desirable clones of select Greek varieties to the FPS public grapevine collection. Xinomavro 01 originated from a vineyard in Domokos and was received by FPS in 2015. The original material qualified for the Classic Foundation Vineyard in 2017.
