The InnoVine consortium is composed of 27 partners combining the expertise of more than 100 grape and wine researchers or producers.  Partners come from 7 European countries concentrating most of the European vineyards surface and contrasted environmental, economic and societal conditions.

The teams involved cover a wide range of scientific disciplines in viticulture (e.g. grapevine genetics and breeding, physiology, ecology, epidemiology, pathology) and technical expertise in statistics, phenotyping, databases, modelling, DSS and development of monitoring devices. About half of the partnership is public, and half is composed of private organisations, including SMEs, a large winery company and a nursery cooperative.

Viveros Provedo is currently the Spanish leader company in the production of commercial vine plants and one of the principal vine plant producers in Europe, sending its products to all the vine-growing regions in Spain, and exporting part of its production to different countries around the world. The Company produces vine and fruit plants in Spain and Turkey and has more than 100 workers in 3 production centers: Logroño, (La Rioja), Don Benito (Badajoz) and Alcazar de San Juan (Ciudad Real). PROVEDO is involved in several Breeding Programs in Fruit varietyes and Vine. In vine plants, Viveros Provedo has been working in differents Vine Breeding Programs of Tempranillo clonal selection: ATYCA, and PROFIT with the aim of selecting high qualtity clones of Tempranillo variety, from more than 70 years old vinyards. Provedo is currently involved in the R+D project entitled: “Sanitary, genetic, clonal selection from Tempranillo vine variety of high wine quality of the Rioja A.O.C.”


Provedo will participate in WP4. Starting from 30 Tempranillo clones selected in the past, PROVEDO will compare 9 of these clones in several conditions. The objective is the selection of the best oenological quality Tempranillo clones adapted to current climate conditions and market demands as well as to future environmental conditions that could appear because of climate change.
