Ancient Varieties from the Côtes de Gascogne
Sarragachies vineyard, owned by the Pédebernade family, is the oldest in France
Cornell-Geneva Grapevine Breeding and Genetics Program
Information on grape varieties and resources for growers and researchers
French Institute of Vine and Wine
IFV conducts studies concerning plant selection, wine-growing, wine-making and commercialization. Good information about molecular ampelography, vine disease, biodiversity, organic viticulture, and bio protection.
French National Institute for Agricultural Research
INRA (Institut National de la Recherche Agronomique) has registered 2 black (Artaban, Vidoc) and 2 white (Floréal, Voltis) grapes resistant to downy and powdery mildew in the national list of authorized wine grape varieties resulting from its ResDur initiative.
Grape Genomics Portal
Information about grapevine genomics (all the genetic material in an organism) -- as opposed to genetics (study of individual genes) -- from the UC Davis Department of Viticulture and Enology.
Greek Vitis Database
GVD provides free access to six databases about Greek cultivars of Vitis vinifera:
an information database;
a nuclear single sequence repeats (nSSR) microsatellite profiles database;
a chloroplast microsatellite (cpSSR) database;
a combined nSSR – cpSSR profiles database (combination of the previous 2 databases);
an ampelographic database (descriptive database of the ampelographic characteristics of 270 cultivars.);
and a rootstock database which provides nSSR profiles of Vitis species and hybrids used as rootstocks.
Influence of Grapevine Training Systems on Vine Growth and Fruit Compositon
Swiss Vitis Microsatellite Database
SVMD is a standardised database of microsatellite genotypes of virtually all grape cultivars, rootstocks or wild grapevines that grow in Switzerland.
