pelee island and grape virus

I have heard that Pelee Island vineyards were responsible for saving many of the vineyards in Europe because their root stock was immune to certain plant diseases that were attacking the vines. What can you tell me about this?

1. Re: pelee island and grape virus

We just got back from Pelee Island and went on the vineyard tour. I don't believe it was the Pelee Vineyards themselves but a variety of the North American root stock. Vineyards have come and gone on Pelee (it is naturally marshy and has to be pumped out continuously to support the vineyards) so I'm not sure what was around when this happened. If you contact the Pelee Island winery or check their website they probably can give you the details. The island is definitely NOT worth a trip to find out the details or do anything else there for that matter.
