One of the approximately 30 American species or wild vines that are native to the southeastern United States, primarily in the states of Louisiana, Oklahoma and Texas. Trivial synonyms are Big Summer Grape, Pine Wood Grape, Post Oak Grape, Sand Grape, South Western Aestivalis, Turkey Grape and Vine Wood Grape. Botanical synonyms are Vitis lincecumii Buckley, Vitis lincecumii var. Lactea small and Vitis lincecumii var. Glauco Munson. The vine has a good resistance to phylloxera. Hermann Jaeger (1844-1895), who immigrated to the USA and was born in Switzerland, often used it for his breeding for this reason.
