The white grape variety originates from Greece; it probably comes from one of the Ionian Islands. Synonyms are Galbenâ Mâruntâ, Kako Tryghi, Katotrichi, Kakotriguis, Kakotriki, Kakotriyis and Kakotryghis. The ancestry (parentage) is unknown. Whether there is a genetic relationship to the Romanian variety Galbenâ Mâruntâ is not known. There is also a red berry variety or mutation called Kakotrygis Kokkino. The early ripening vine is susceptible to downy mildew. It yields high alcohol white wines with moderate acidity. The variety is grown in small quantities on the island of Corfu (Kérkyra). In 2016, 28 hectares of vines were reported in Greece with a strong downward trend (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.
