Certification of vines

A research project launched in Austria in 1993/94 by ARC Seibersdorf (Austria Research Center ULB Umwelt-, Lebenswissenschaften- und Biotechnologie) and VitroPlan GmbH aims to significantly improve the quality of Austrian wines by gradually planting certified vines (the first phase was completed in 2001). The background is provided by several EU Directives, the implementation of which led to the "Austrian Rebverkehrsgesetz 1995". The aim is to ensure that in the future the planting material will meet defined quality criteria, and above all that it is free of defined diseases. Many vines show latent infections, which are further spread during vegetative propagation and grafting.
