First record of Grapevine pinot gris virus infecting Vitis vinifera in the United Kingdom.

Abstract

In April 2017, a survey of 4 geographically separated vineyards was done to investigate the presence of Grapevine Pinot gris virus (GPGV) in the United Kingdom. The detection of GPGV was confirmed based on coat protein gene sequences. This is thought to be the first report of Grapevine Pinot gris virus on grapes (Vitis vinifera) in the UK.
