Axina de Tres Bias

The red grape variety originates from Italy or Greece. Synonyms are Axina, Axina a Tres Bias, Axina de Tres Bortas, Eftakilo, Heftakilo, Heftakilos, Heptakilo (second main name), Raisin du Japon, Triboto, Trifera, Uva di Tre Volte and Uva Trifera. However, the parentage (parentage) is unknown. The vine is cultivated in Sardinia and Greece as table grape, but is also used as a wine grape. According to DNA analyses, it is a parent of the varieties Aitonychi Mavro, Apesorgia Bianca, Muscat d'Alexandrie and Planta Nova. In 2023, the variety was rediscovered in the tropical climate of the Dominican Republic, where it had arrived in the country with the first settlers in the 17th century and was propagated by cuttings without grafting. The vine is cultivated there on a few hectares in the province of Bahoruco and a fruity red wine is pressed from it. In 2016, however, no stock was recorded (Kym Anderson statistics).
