The red grape variety (also Kuhlmann 237-1) is an interspecific new breed between Millardet et Grasset 101-14 (Riparia x Rupestris) x Goldriesling (1). They are genes from Vitis riparia. Vitis rupestris and Vitis vinifera contain. The crossing of the hybrid took place at the beginning of the 20th century at the Oberlin Institute in Colmar-Alsace by the French breeder Eugène Kuhlmann (1858-1932). Incidentally, the six new varieties are with the same parents Etoile II. Leon Millot. Lucie Kuhlmann. Maréchal Foch. Maréchal Joffre and Pinard emerged. The early ripening vine is resistant to frost and fungal diseases and produces velvety red wines. However, no stocks were shown in 2010 (Statistics Kym Anderson ).
