The red 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 of Vitis riparia. Vitis rupestris and Vitis vinifera contain. The intersection of 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 same parents are also the six new breeds Etoile II. Léon 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. In 2010, however, no stocks were reported (Statistics Kym Anderson ).
