OIV rejects names of existing varieties for disease-resistant hybrids

December 13, 2019

"For new varieties, the use of names that could lead to confusion with those of existing varieties should be avoided, especially when those varietal names are already used for approved official labels of existing commercial products", states Resolution 609-2019 of the International Organisation of Vine and Wine (OIV).
