The red grape variety comes from Spain. The parentage (parenthood) is unknown. The variety, almost extinct after the phylloxera catastrophe, was rediscovered in 1998 in the DO area of Penedès near the town of Querol in the region of Catalonia and named after the place where it was found. As part of a reactivation programme for old, autochthonous varieties, it was replanted by the Torres winery. It is an all-female grape variety. The vine is susceptible to small berries and therefore somewhat unproductive, but resistant to drought and drought. It produces red wines with aromas of laurel and candied fruit. The variety is cultivated by the Torres Winery on around 15 hectares in the Conca de Barberà DO area. However, no stock was recorded in the statistics of Kym Anderson in 2010.
