Cabernet colonjes

The red grape variety (also VB 91-26-5) is an interspecific new breeding between Cabernet Sauvignon x unknown resistance partners. It contains genes from Vitis amurensis and Vitis vinifera. The hybrid was crossed in 1991 by Valentin Blattner, the owner of a vineyard in Soyhières in the canton of Jura in Switzerland. The early maturing vine is susceptible to powdery mildew but resistant to frost. It produces fruity red wines. The variety is grown exclusively by the producer Colonjes (after whom it is named) in the Netherlands and in Sweden. In 2016, however, no stocks were recorded (statistics Kym Anderson).
