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 crossing of the hybrids was done by the scientist Georges Couderc (1850-1928) in France. She was a crossing partner in the new breeding Moscato Embrapa. The vine is mainly used as table grape. It is cultivated in Brazil in the Rio Grande do Sul area. In 2010, 834 hectares of vineyards were designated here (Kym Anderson).
