The red grape variety is a new breed between the Beaujolais grape Gamay (red) x Gros Dore (white). The cross was made in 1932 at the Landesanstalt für Rebenzuchtung in Alzey by the German vine grower Georg Shy (1879-1949) as its only red wine variety. It is approved for experimental winegrowing in Germany. A disadvantageous feature is the unevenly ripe berries on a grape. The vine ripens very early and produces a velvety, deep ruby red wine. It is used by a few companies such as the Gutenbornerhof winery in the German wine-growing region Rheinhessen grown in small quantities. In 2010, however, no stocks were shown (Statistics Kym Anderson ).
