Cabaret Noir

The red grape variety is an interspecific new variety between Cabernet Sauvignon x unknown resistance partners. In 2017, the original name Cabernet Noir was changed to Cabaret Noir for legal reasons. Synonyms are Cabernet Noir, VB 91-26-04 and Valentin Blattner VB 91-26-04, which contain genes from Vitis amurensis and Vitis vinifera. The hybrid was crossed in 1991 by the vineyard owner and vine breeder Valentin Blattner in Soyhières in the canton of Jura in Switzerland. The early-ripening, loose-berried and frost-hardy vine is resistant to powdery and downy mildew as well as botrytis, which is why it is a PIWI (fungus-resistant) variety.
