The red grape variety is a new variety between the Beaujolais grape Gamay (red) x Gros Dore (white). It was crossed in 1932 at the Landesanstalt für Rebenzüchtung in Alzey by the German vine breeder Georg Scheu (1879-1949) as his only red wine variety. It is approved in Germany for experimental viticulture. A disadvantageous feature is the uneven ripening of the berries on one grape. The vine ripens very early and produces a velvety, deep ruby red wine. It is only grown in small quantities by a few companies such as the Gutenbornerhof winery in the German Rheinhessen wine region. However, no stocks were reported in 2016 (statistics Kym Anderson).
