Grapevine virus H (GVH) is a member of the genus Vitivirus in the family Betaflexiviridae (subfamily Trivirinae, order Tymovirales) that infects grapevine (Candresse et al., 2018). GVH was first identified in a symptomless grapevine of an unknown cultivar from Portugal in 2018 (Candresse et al. 2018), and since then the virus has been reported only from California (Diaz‑Lara et al. 2019).
Several vitiviruses have been detected in Greek vineyards (Avgelis and Roubos 2000; Dovas and Katis 2003a; 2003b; Panailidou et al. 2019; Lotos et al. 2020), but no information was available on the presence of GVH.
