The red grape variety (also Montpellier 5-18-79) is a complex interspecific new breeding between VRH 3082-1-42 (genes of Aubun, Cabernet Sauvignon, Garnacha Tinta, Merlot) x Regent. It contains genes from Vitis labrusca, Vitis lincecumii, Vitis rupestris and Vitis vinifera as well as Muscadinia. The hybrid was created in collaboration between the INRA (Montpellier, France) and the Julius Kühn Institute (Siebeldingen, Palatinate, Germany) as part of a project launched in 2000 for the development of PIWI varieties. The vine is characterized by a total resistance to powdery mildew and a high resistance to downy mildew. The same parents were also used to create the new Vidoc variety as part of the project.
