The red grape variety is an interspecific new variety between Jaeger 43 x Rupestris. It contains genes from Vitis lincecumii and Vitis rupestris. The hybrid was crossed by the US breeder Hermann Jaeger (1844-1895) in Missouri, who named it Jaeger 70 and later after his friend Thomas Volney Munson (1843-1913). It is an all-female grape variety. It has a high resistance to phylloxera (but grafting is still necessary). The French breeder Albert Seibel (1844-1936) used the vine for many of his French hybrids. In the USA it is mainly used as table grape. Under the name Jaeger 70, it was used as a crossing partner for the new varieties Couderc Noir, Flot Rouge, Othello Petit, Roi des Noirs, Rosette, Rougeon, Salvador Noire and Vivarais. No stocks were reported in 2016 (Kym Anderson).

There is a vast number of sources on the web where one can acquire knowledge about wine. But none has the scope, timeliness and accuracy of the information in the encyclopaedia at wein.plus. I use it regularly and rely on it.
