Abstract

In this work we report new findings related to the recovery of old vines in The Comunitat Valenciana (Spain), where great diversity of grapevines varieties was present prior the phylloxera arrival. New accessions of old varieties previously recovered by our group and in risk of disappearance were located. Accessions with new SSR profiles were also found and, in some cases, could be ascribed to old grapevine ampelonyms; new synonymies were also detected. Chlorotypes were determined in the recovered germplasm. Several actions for the preservation of the recovered accessions have been initiated.
