Vitis coignetiae - red discolored vine leaves

The hardy Vine comes mainly to the east from Russia, as in Japan and Korea in front. It thrives in cool, moist forests on sandy-loamy soil and climbs up to 25 meters high in the treetops. The grapes with small, blue-black berries are rather inedible. In Asian countries, however, wine is also made from it, in Japan from the selected variety Yama Budou, During the phylloxera catastrophe in the 19th century, this wine was exported from Japan to Europe. Two more Asian species are Vitis amurensis and Vitis ficifolia, See further information under Asians Vines and Vines systematics,
