(See Abourion above).
Reported as derived from a Hartford O.P developed in Pennsylvania. Cold hardy variety matures early, giving small/medium, compact clusters of foxy-flavored dull black-skinned berries having poor quality. No other details as yet.
all spirits distilled from fermented fruits, starting with wine-based Cognac and armagnac.
Created by Elmer Swenson, this cultivar is derived from an Ontario x (Beta x Witt) cross. Very winter-hardy, reportedly to -30 deg. F (approx -34 C). Claimed to have excellent disease resistance and adaptability with a flavor that intensifies with hangtime. Produces amber colored fruit suitable for creating popular sweet wine, juice or as a tablegrape. Usually ripens around a month to five weeks before Concord.
Disappointing vitis hybrid variety, synonym name N.Y 11737, for New York State. Derived from an Ontario x (Triumph x Mills) crossing. Reported as having medium-poor vigor, low productivity and lacking in sufficient hardiness. This cultivar seems more suited to the mid-South and Deep South States of the U.S.A.
Has alternate name Seyve-Villard 12-375 O.P and so appears to be a selection related to Villard Blanc. (No other details as yet other than this cross variety is grown in Hungary, and elsewhere, and is one of the parents of the Bianca and Landot Noir cultivars).
Patented and released in 1985 by the Geneva Research Station (NY). Early ripening, shy-bearing cool-climate hybrid red tablegrape cultivar with unique strawberrylike flavor. Derived from a Fredonia and Canner cross. Claimed as resistant to Botrytis and very hardy. Also recommended as useful for raisin production.
(a.k.a Weisser Silvaner). White-wine grape of ancient origin mostly found in limited plantings in the Mosel-Saar-Ruhr region of Germany, used to produce a traditional dry, sparkling wine. The variety known in California as Kleinberger Riesling is thought by some to be this same variety.
V.vinifera variety with several synonym names listed by the Geilweilerhof database (in Foreword above) including Schwarzelbling.
Female pollinate derived from a Captain x Terret Monstre cross. Sibling of Gasconade and Bokay. Developed and released by Southwest Missouri State Univ. in 1947. Resembles its seed parent Captain in cluster shape but superior in quality and larger, being cylindrical in shape and over a foot long. Vigorous in growth with heavy berry production. Flesh is tender, sweet and separates readily from the seeds. Recommended as suitable as a tablegrape or for creating a somewhat bland and non-foxy red wine.
Possibly developed by the Viticultural Station at Odessa, Ukraine. No other details except reported as a likely V.vinifera x french hybrid tablegrape.
American hybrid variety developed by T. V. Munson. Derived from a Armlong x Malaga cross. Lavendar colored grape with few soluble color pigments. Hardy and productive, ripening in early mid-season, this cultivar is capable of producing a flavorsome white wine. Suitable for growing in climates/soils that are known to support the Concord vine. Recommended by some as suitable for growing in Kansas and other south-central U.S. States.
Variety developed by T.V Munson from a cross reported as Elvira x (complex V. candicans, V. riparia, V. labrusca) variety. The cultivar is vigorous and hardy, self-fertilizing with subsequent open clusters of medium-sized berries that are somewhat sweet with slight V. candicans flavor. Generally ripens in late season and recommended as suitable for winemaking.
Reportedly discovered in Missouri in 1870, this old-line complex american labrusca/riparia/vinifera (reported seedling of a Taylor x Martha crossing) variety is now considered to produce a mediocre and strongly 'fox' flavored white wine. Vulnerable to fruit cracking because of thin skin, the grape typically has high acidity. Ripening at same time as Concord, it is resistant to Mildew and its general hardiness recommends it for difficult growing areas. Currently used by at least two wineries in the Finger Lakes region of New York. Production in the Lake Erie region of New York state was recently (2002) reviewed and recommended as cost suitable as a wine blending agent. A new variety, named Ventura, that upgraded the older cultivar in its resistance to fruit cracking was released in the 1970's by the Ontario Horticultural Research Institute of Canada.
Seedless hybrid table grape that is one of the parents, along with the Athens variety, of the Marquis cool-climate wine/table grape.
White-wine hybrid variety developed by H. C. Olmo of UC Davis from a crossing of Muscadelle de Bordelais and (White) Riesling. Probably the most successful of the attempts to breed high quality/quantity white-wine grapes for specific use in California.
Labrusca-vinifera hybrid variety, created by Peter Raab of Philadelphia in the 19th century. Historically interesting as one of the main varieties that allowed the eventual breeding of Chelois and other disease, pest and lime resistant french-american hybrids and rootstocks.
Variety grown in Turkey where it is used to create a modest white-wine varietal or blends with such other varietal wines as Narince and Semmilon. No other details as yet.
Has synonym names Lambrusca Nostrano and Lambrusca a Folglia Frastagliata. Reported as grown in the Trentino region of Italy where it is used to make a full-bodied, fruity red wine.
Cultivar developed 1925 by N.E. Hansen in S. Dakota. Derived from a cross of Lady Washington (a complex Concord descendant) and the Beta variety. Has white/pink berry skin, growing in small, loose clusters. It is productive female pollinate, claimed as winter-hardy to -35 deg. F (about -38 C.), with a taste described as 'mildly foxy'. Main use is as a tablegrape.
Minor grape grown in northern Piedmont, a region of Italy, and used to make dry, eg. 'Erbaluce di Caluso Cariola', and sweet white wines. Best known for the full-bodied, sweet wine versions made with dried grapes, eg: 'Caluso Passito'. Also a fortified version with 16% alcohol, (i.e: Liquoroso).
Synonym name for the white-wine Marsanne grape where grown in Switzerland.
Red-wine grape grown in northern Portugal and also in bordering Galicia, Spain. Mostly used in 'vinho verde', young wines for early drinking.
Patented American x Vinifera cultivar developed by Elmer Swenson as suitable for wine or table use in short season, cold regions such as southwestern Wisconsin. A seedling derived from Villard Blanc it is claimed to possess some resemblance as a white wine to that produced from the Chardonnay variety. Ripens early to mid-season (ie. usually around mid-September).
American chance seedling thought to be derived from labrusca, vinifera and aestivalis parentage dating from around 1847. Above average in vigor, hardiness and productivity. Somewhat difficult to propagate. Moderate susceptibility to mildew diseases. Flowers tend to sterility. Ripens around mid-season to give medium size glossy black skinned berries that keep well. Reported to make a good quality red wine. Recommended for Tablegrape use. Ripens late mid-season. No other details available other than it is of unproven ID, possibly a seedling of Isabella.
Variety reported as a T. V. Munson complex American (V.lincecumii) cross created from Big Berry x Triumph cultivars.
