Tressot Panaché

The red grape variety comes from France, Synonyms include A Tre Colori, Balloon de Suisse, Bicolor, Bizzarria, Moonwine, Morillon Panaché, Raisin Panaché, Swiss Grape, Tressot Bigarré (bigarre = brightly patterned), Tressot Lune and Bicolor Morillon. It is a color mutation of the French variety Tressot Noir, The peculiarity is that the grapes in strip form may have white, blue or blue-white sectored berries. The second part of the name derives from this (panaché = mixed). The leaves may also be striped in autumn. The variety has become known as a curiosity in the 16th century. Today it is almost extinct; in 2010 no stock was reported (Statistics Kym Anderson ).
