The VCR catalogues, available now in different languages, are real user manuals for the winegrowers. There you can find the description of the varieties, the clones and the rootstocks used in our production. In presenting the different varieties, great care and attention is put into highlighting their distinctive features, particularly as far as ampelographic characters, phenological stages, growing attitudes, training and pruning systems are concerned.Show more
Many aspects related to disease susceptibility are also highlighted, with a particular regard to downy and powdery mildew, botrytis and phytoplasmas (Flavescence dorée and Bois noir). The description of the oenological potential of each variety relies on the data and the knowledge acquired at the VCR Research Center in over 40 years of micro-wine making. As far as clones are concerned, their main agronomic characters are synthetically described: vigor, cluster, grape size and shape, productivity. Sensory analysis and oenological potential are also carefully highlighted. VCR Catalogues, translated in multiple languages, are therefore a valuable support to winegrowers all over the world, who can find a great deal of information and above all acquire an extensive knowledge of both upsides and downsides of each item: a precious tool in the variety/clone/rootstock decision-making process. Among all the important information offered in our catalogues readers can also find details about the total surface occupied with each cultivar in the main winegrowing countries.

For several VCR clones, additional oenological tests have been carried out in partnership with the University of Milan. This allowed for a deeper oenological characterization through the evaluation of in-depth parameters: each clone is thus mapped out not only from the agronomical point of view, but also in its aromatic profile and, for red-berry clones, in its polyphenolic complex.Show more
The results of these in-depth investigations have been collected in the “VCR Technical Booklets” which are made available to winegrowers and oenologists to support them in a more informed choice of clones according to their intended oenological purposes. Thanks to these investigations it has also been possible to outline the best clone/rootstock combinations, so that to bring out and enhance the agronomic and oenological characteristics of each selection. At present and for a wide number of varieties, the available range of original VCR clones offers a true and exhaustive picture of all – or almost all – the existing intra-varietal variables, thus allowing the perfect match between the clonal choice and the oenological targets.

For almost three decades now, it has become a yearly tradition for Vivai Cooperativi Rauscedo to offer an illustrated calendar that highlights the best of nursery and viticulture. Particular attention has been paid to the most well-known Italian and foreign grape varieties with replicas drawn from old ampelographic sheets.
The calendar is also designed as a tool to disseminate wine culture among professional winegrowers and amateurs. It is a useful instrument to acquire a comprehensive view of the different national wine-growing heritages by bringing them closer, as well as a freely available array of collectibles to create, over time, your own global-scale ampelography.
