Info about the grape variety

Cépage: Divico
Indigenous | 42 HA in Switzerland (0,29%)

Divico, was created in 1996 at the Agroscope Research Center in Pully, a variety of multi-resistant grapes (PIWI) obtained from a crossing of Gamaret and Bronner. Named after an ancient Helvetian warrior who repelled the Roman invasion in -107, Divico is the first resistant grape variety in the world that does not require any phytosanitary treatment. It is the result of an approach aimed at encouraging sustainable viticulture with a minimum of impact on the environment. Harvested late like Gamaret, it produces wines rich in color and tannins, with aromas of spices, pepper, cloves, blueberries and violets.
