Valais grape varieties

See below Old plants,

In Switzerland common name (French vieux plants) for the mostly very old autochthonous Grape varieties, especially in the canton Wallis (French Valais). Some come from the Italian region above the border aosta Valley or are also partially grown there. The two areas form a geographical island across borders with a large common grape variety pool. Many of these grape varieties form individual groups with kinship relationships that have developed over centuries. The sometimes very close genetic connections are due to the geographic isolation.
