Pinot Maria Field

The red grape variety comes from Switzerland. Synonyms are Mariafeld and Mariafeldtraube. However, it is not an independent grape variety, but a clone mutant of Pinot Noir. Although the DNA profile is identical, there are small morphological differences. Due to a physiological change in the grape skeleton, the grapes are looser, which makes them less susceptible to fungi or grape rot. The variety was discovered in the Stäfa district on Lake Zurich and was also cultivated there under this name. The clone is also used in Germany, but under the name Pinot Noir. It belongs to the group of Pinot varieties; see there.
