Jacquez

The red grape variety originates from the USA. Synonyms are Troya (Australia); Jacquez, Jacquet (France); Tintiglia (Italy); Lenoir (Mexico); Alabama, Black El Paso, Black July, Black Spanish, Blue French, Blue French Grape, Burgundy, Cigar Box Grape, Clarence, Deveraux, El Paso, French Grape, Jack, Jacques, Jaquez, July Cherry, Long Laliman, Longworth's Ohio, Mac Candless, Madeira, Segar Box, Sherry of the South, Springstein, Sumpter, Thurmond, Tintiglia, Warren (USA); Zakez, Zsake. The ancestry is not clear and hotly debated. It is a presumably natural cross between the American species Vitis aestivalis and Vitis cinerea, and possibly an unknown European Vitis vinifera. The US botanist Thomas Volney Munson (1843-1913) later assigned the hybrid to the species Vitis bourquina (ex wild vine Vitis aestivalis x Vitis cinerea). The variety was a crossing partner in the new variety Black Herbemont.
