Variety used for white wine production near Brindisi in Apulia, Italy. Usually blended with Francavilla wine to make a crisp tablewine that matches local seafood dishes. Also grown in Argentina where it has the alias name Nessun.
Has alias name of Manzoni 6-0-13. White-wine cultivar grown in the Friuli and Veneto regions of Italy. Is a cross between the Riesling Renano and Pinot Bianco vinifera varieties and used to create such base-wine blends as are found in the Colli di Conegliano DOC 'Bianco' wines etc.
Derived from the same parents as Himrod, this hybrid seedless variety is mainly recommended for use as a strongly flavored table or raisin grape. Usually buds late May and ripens by late August. Capable of producing a white wine, having some ageing potential, suitable for blending. Currently grown in some quantity in the Pacific northern coastal regions of N. America and elsewhere. Vigorous with good quality grapes in warmer regions. In cooler areas it is hard frost sensitive. Also may show poor sets with unevenly sized berries. Berry splitting can also be a problem, so much so that some recommend the Reliance, Mars or Vanessa varieties as better tablegrape substitutes.
Extensive plantings of this variety are found on the west coast of Sicily where it is made into a wine commonly blended with the Grillo and Catarrato Bianco grape wines in order to create the famous dry and sweet 'Marsala' white wines of historical significance. The grape is also found in Tuscany region of Italy where it is known by the alias name Ansonica and used to make (eg.) a dry white wine described as 'medium bodied with a salty but short taste'. On the island of Elba it is used to make sweet dessert wines in the passito style (ie. from grapes dried on the vine etc).
Native American hybrid variety (ie. Diana O.P) released for use as a wine/table grape in New York State in 1864 by Dr C. W. Grant. Currently not recommended because of its somewhat weak, unproductive characteristics, requiring care in cultivation in that it needs deep, dry, sandy or gravelly soils, doing particularly well when trained against walls or buildings. Marginally cold hardy and very susceptible to mildew diseases. Reported as ripening later than Concord. Historically interesting as one of the parents, the other being Concord, of the Diamond variety. Flavor is considered to be the finest of all labrusca grapes and the mild 'foxy' flavor allows use as a varietal white wine and in sparkling wine blends. Also is an excellent table grape with long bunch storage capacity. NB: An american database has the Naples variety listed as having the alias name White Iona. No other details as yet.
whiskey made in Ireland, often produced using barley.
Moderately cold-resistant American labruscana grape grown on limited acreages in New York state for use as a tablegrape and in varietal and sparkling wine blends. A selected 'bud sport' cultivar is currently grown in California under the name Pierce (has synonym name Royal Isabella). Still grown in cooler regions of Italy and Australia, where it is named Fragola. A selection with the name Albany Surprise is now grown in New Zealand. Also found in eastern Europe under a variety of alias names, (such as Seksarda in Croatia, former province of Yugoslavia and as Izabella in Hungary and Georgia CIS). This historically significant variety has over fifty synonym names (see Geilweilerhof database in the Foreword section above) as a result of its post-phylloxera popularity in the late 19th century. Thought to be derived from a native Vitis Labrusca grape of N. America and an unknown european vinifera probably created by random pollination as a result of the 18th century attempts to establish European vines in the U.S. Reputedly discovered in Dorchester, N. Carolina around 1816 it was promoted by William R. Prince, an influential nursery owner established in Flushing, N.Y, and named after a famous 'southern belle', the wife of Col. George Gibbs. Currently being selectively removed and replaced by varieties that lack the 'grapey/foxy' taste and flavor of this grape although it still has its admirers. Modern winemaking techniques have succeeded in eradicating the agent responsible, resulting in a popular, strawberry/boysenbery-like flavored wine where those techniques are practiced. It is still grown in quantity in Brazil and other fungus prone regions of South America. An example of random hybridization involving only N. American vine species that resulted in a successful wine is the Norton grape..
Black, self-fertile V.rotundifolia (ie. Muscadine) variety patented by William Ison of Griffin, Georgia, USA. Very productive, normally ripens uniformly in early to mid-season, if dry-scarred, with good fruit (19%) sugars. Claimed as best black pollinator and is currently (1998) grown by a family winery in N. Carolina for use in creating a red, dry, varietal wine.
V.vinifera variety derived from a cross of Bicane x Muscat Hamburg. Has several synonym names including Dona Sofia, Ideal and Muscat Italia. Currently grown in USA, Hungary and several other european countries where it it used as a wine and tablegrape.
(No information on this grape yet other than it is an Oregon State chance seedling suitable for wine or juice. Ripens in late August-early September. Currently listed as an American labruscana derivative).
Early 19th century American labrusca grape discovery used to produce red wines strongly 'foxy' in flavor. Highly vulnerable to Ozone gas pollution which causes diminished vigor and productivity. Should be planted in deep, well-drained soils or grafted on a vigorous rootstock such as '3309'. One of the most deeply colored 'tooth-stainers'. Still widely grown in Brazil and other hot, humid, fungus prone regions of South America. Also found in Australia where it has the synonym name Kittredge.
