Vitis berlandieri

American wild vine, which was managed as a separate species under this name until the 1990s. It was named in 1880 by the French botanist Jules Émile Planchon (1823-1888) after the Swiss biologist Jean-Louis Berlandier (1805-1851), who first described it in 1834. Today, the vine is known as Vitis cinerea var. helleri, one of the five varieties of the species Vitis cinerea. In many sources, however, this is not yet understood, so that the name Vitis berlandieri is still often mentioned. See also under American vines and vine systematics.

The glossary is a monumental achievement and one of the most important contributions to wine knowledge. Of all the encyclopaedias I use on the subject of wine, it is by far the most important. That was the case ten years ago and it hasn't changed since.
