Ulysses (grape variety)

The white grape variety is an interspecific new variety between ((Amurensis x Vinifera) x Thalloczy Lajos) x Pinot Gris. Genes from Vitis amurensis and Vitis vinifera are contained. The hybrid was crossed in 1966 in Hungary. The vine is frost-resistant. It is mainly cultivated as a wine grape in the Hajós-Baja area of Hungary. In 2020, 25 hectares of vineyard area were designated in Hungary (Statistics Ministry of Agriculture Hungary).

There is a vast number of sources on the web where one can acquire knowledge about wine. But none has the scope, timeliness and accuracy of the information in the encyclopaedia at wein.plus. I use it regularly and rely on it.
