Info about the grape variety

Grape variety: Sauvignon Blanc
International (planted after 1900) | 197 HA in Switzerland (1,32%)

Originally from the Loire Valley where it is mentioned under its old name of Fiers in 1534 in the famous work Gargantua de Rabelais, Sauvignon Blanc takes its name from the wild vine whose leaves are similar. The DNA test revealed that it is a child of Savagnin Blanc, called Heida in Valais, a brother of Chenin Blanc de la Loire, and a progenitor of Cabernet Sauvignon by natural crossing with Cabernet Franc. In Switzerland, this grape variety of medium precocity, very vigorous and sensitive to gray rot, is cultivated practically in all the cantons, where it gives wines high in acidity, marked by aromas of flowers, currants, apples, fruits. passion and blackcurrant bud.

Cépage: Kerner
International (planted after 1900) | 25HA in Switzerland (0,17%)

An artificial cross of Schiava Grossa × Riesling obtained in 1929 at the Weinsberg research center in Baden-Württemberg (D), Kerner was named in honor of Dr Justinus Kerner who wrote drinking songs. Productive and sensitive to powdery mildew, it is resistant to the cold. In Switzerland, its wines are reminiscent of Riesling, with lower acidity.
