The red grape variety (also Quebranta Peruana) comes from Peru. According to the last DNA analyses carried out in 2017, it is probably a natural cross between Mission (Listán Prieto) x Negra Mole (Negramoll). However, this is based on only 20 DNA markers(see molecular genetics). 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 2016, a cultivation area of 330 hectares was designated in Peru (statistics Kym Anderson). Small stocks also exist in Argentina and Brazil.
