The red grape variety (also Joannes Seyve D.) probably comes from France
. It is named after Joannes Seyve
(1900-1966), the son of the famous French vine grower Bertille Seyve (see Seyve-Villard
). The parentage (parenthood) is unknown, possibly it is one of the numerous Joannes-Seyve new varieties (see Seyve Joannes
). In 2010, a stand of one hectare was designated in the Landes department (ten years earlier it was three hectares). However, it is not clear exactly which variety is involved.
