The white grape variety is an interspecific new variety between Carter x Black Hamburg(Schiava Grossa). Synonyms are Goethe Classica, Gota de Ouro and Rogers 1, with genes from Vitis labrusca and Vitis vinifera. The crossing of the hybrid was done in 1858 in the USA in Salem/Massachusetts by the breeder E. S. Rogers. The vine has reddish coloured berries. It is used as a wine press and table grape. No stocks were reported in 2010 (Statistics Kym Anderson).
