The red grape variety (also Quebranta Peruana) comes from Peru. According to DNA analyses carried out in 2006, it is probably a natural cross between Mission(Listán Prieto) x Negra Mole(Negramoll). It is mainly used there as a base wine for the production of the eau-de-vie or the Peruvian national drink Pisco. The variety is also used as a wine grape for simple red and rosé wines and as a table grape. In 2010, a cultivation area of 330 hectares was designated in Peru. There are also small stocks in Argentina and Brazil.
