Gamaret is a cross between Gamay and Reichensteiner. It is mainly cultivated in Switzerland, but has been authorized in Beaujolais (FR) since 2008. Gamaret produces wines of excellent structure. Between a Pinot Noir and a Syrah, this wine with a deep and colorful color, offers aromas of blackberries, red fruits and gourmet spices.

Indigenous | 228 HA in Switzerland (1,56%)
Garanoir is a cross between Gamay and Reichensteiner. Garanoir was obtained in 1970 at the Agroscope research center in Pully (Switzerland) with the aim of creating a grape variety similar to Gamay, but more resistant and rich in color. Officially marketed in 1990, it is a brother of Gamaret and Mara. Grown only in Switzerland, its wines are colorful, fruity, supple, and are often used in blending.
