GR 7

The red grape variety (also Geneva Red 7, NY 34-791) is an interspecific new variety between Buffalo x Baco Noir. It contains genes from Vitis labrusca, Vitis riparia and Vitis vinifera. The hybrid was crossed in 1947 at the Vine Breeding Institute of Cornell University in Geneva, New York State. The early-ripening, frost-hardy vine produces red wines, which are mostly used in blends. It is mainly cultivated in the Finger Lakes area in New York State as well as in Iowa. In 2016, a total of 13 hectares of vineyards were designated in the USA (Kym Anderson).

Serious sources on the internet are rare - and Wine lexicon from wein.plus is one such source. When researching for my articles, I regularly consult the wein.plus encyclopaedia. There I get reliable and detailed information.
