THE "GENEBANK" OF PROTOS, AWARD "100 BEST IDEAS 2012" BY THE PRESTIGIOUS ECONOMIC JOURNAL “ACTUALIDAD ECONOMICA”
The economical journal has awarded the R + D + i "germplasm" of Bodegas Protos as one of the most innovative ideas of 2012. It is a pioneering initiative with the variety "tempranillo" originally from Ribera del Duero, in order to preserve the authenticity of this tipical grape.
PROTOS has creates the first Germplasm Bank of Ribera del Duero in order to rescue the genetic material of the authentic "tempranillo", thus becoming the only winery in the world that has a Germplasm Bank.
PROTOS has developed an important work of selecting the oldest vines in the DO. These experts chose 60 plots of vines of all the acres that are part of the DO, selecting only 4 strains of each of these plots. The aim was to extract the tips of branches of these old vines in order to graft them in new strains of reference plantations thus preserving all the genetic material necessary.
This germplasm bank account and with 1.8 hectares of vineyards that make up a unique selection of conservation. A large genetic treasure with which we can develop new research.
The award ceremony of the Awards for the 100 best ideas of 2012 will be held tomorrow, May 21, at the prestigious Ritz Hotel in Madrid.
