The red grape variety is a new breed between the Beaujolais grape Gamay (red) x Gros Dore (white). The crossing took place in 1932 at the State Institute for Vine Breeding in Alzey by the German vines breeder Georg Shy (1879-1949) as his only red wine variety. It is approved in Germany in experimental viticulture. A disadvantageous feature is the unevenly ripe berries on a grape. The very early ripening vine yields a velvety, deep red wine. It is owned by a few companies such as the winery Gutenbornerhof in the German wine-growing region Rheinhessen grown in only a small amount. In 2010, however, no stocks were reported (Statistics Kym Anderson ).
