Vidal Jean-Louis

The French vine grower Jean-Louis Vidal (1880-1976) was active in the Charente cognac region in the 1930s and 1940s. He created over 50 new varieties, most of which were given the name of the grower plus a serial number. Most of these were hybrids of crosses of European and American vines. Most of them were Celtic varieties, but also some rootstocks. His most famous creations are Select (Vidal 100 T) and Vidal Blanc (Vidal 256). All others have no more significance.
