One of the approximately 30 American species or wild vines with the full botanical name Vitis shuttleworthii Haus. Botanical synonyms or old names are Vitis candicans and Vitis coriacea; a trivial synonym is Caloosa Grape. The vine is found in the southeastern USA, especially in Florida. It is of little importance for wine or grape production. Together with the two species Vitis labrusca and Vitis mustangensis, it forms the group Labruscae.
I have great respect for the scope and quality of the wein.plus encyclopaedia. It is a unique place to go for crisp, sound information on terms from the world of wine.Dr. Edgar Müller
