Bacchus

The white grape variety is a new breed between (Silvaner x Riesling) x Müller-Thurgau, which was confirmed by DNA analyses published in 2012. Incidentally, the same parents also gave rise to the Grando variety. The variety was named after the Greek wine god Bacchus. Synonyms are Bacchus Weiß, Frühe Scheurebe, Geilweilerhof 33-29-133 and GF. 33-29-133. The cross was made in 1933 by the breeders Peter Morio (1887-1960) and Bernhard Husfeld (1900-1970) at the Institute for Vine Breeding Geilweilerhof in Siebeldingen-Pfalz. Plant variety protection was granted in 1972. The variety was a crossing partner of the new varieties Birstaler Muskat, Geilweilerhof GA-48-12, Phoenix, Réselle, Sirius and Staufer.
