 Subject:  Vine varieties resistant to cryptogamic diseases
 Answer in writing 

The wine sector is a strategic one for the European Union in light of its weight culturally, economically and in society. The sector must be preserved and supported, enabling it to meet as best as possible the environmental, climate and even commercial challenges facing it. Trade terms and competition among the various Member States must also be fair. In this context, the introduction of vine varieties that are resistant to cryptogamic diseases raises a great many questions.

Does the Commission have figures showing how many vine varieties in the various Member States' registers are resistant to cryptogamic diseases?

Does the Commission have quantitative and qualitative data on the different laws in this field at EU and Member State level?

Has it conducted any studies or assessment of the advantages and/or potential risks — economic, environmental and to health — arising from recourse to these vine varieties?
