The white grape variety is a complex interspecific new variety between Lincecumii x Couderc 162-5 ((Vinifera x Rupestris) x Vinifera). Synonyms are Couderc, Couderc Blanc and Uva Branca. Genes of Vitis aestivalis, Vitis lincecumii, Vitis rupestris and Vitis vinifera are included. The hybrid was crossed by the scientist Georges Couderc (1850-1928) in France. It was a crossing partner in the new variety Moscato Embrapa. The vine is mainly used as table grape. It is cultivated in Brazil in the Rio Grande do Sul area. In 2016, 474 hectares of vineyards were reported here, with a strong downward trend (Kym Anderson statistics).
