Oberon

The red grape variety is an interspecific new breeding between Concord x Muscat d'Hamburg. It contains genes from Vitis labrusca and Vitis vinifera. The hybrid was crossed in Ohio in 1880 by the breeder George W. Campbell (1817-1898). It was named after the fairy king from Shakespeare's "A Midsummer Night's Dream". No stocks were reported in 2016 (Kym Anderson statistics).

The glossary is a monumental achievement and one of the most important contributions to wine knowledge. Of all the encyclopaedias I use on the subject of wine, it is by far the most important. That was the case ten years ago and it hasn't changed since.
