Wine Review Report:

Last reviewed: 1 February, 2012
Denmark is not important in viticulture, but people there have always liked to consume wine. One of the most prominent wine lovers was King Christian IV. (1577-1648). For his numerous festivities he had Riesling imported by the barrel from the German Middle Rhine wine region. Since August 2000 Denmark has been recognised as a wine-growing region by the European Union. This means that Danish wine can be sold for commercial purposes. The maximum area under vines approved by the EU is 99 hectares. The following are permitted, among others the white wine varieties Auxerrois, Bacchus, Chardonnay,...

The red grape variety (also GM 6494-5) is a new breeding between Zarya Severa x St. Laurent. Synonyms are Ambros Rot, Geisenheim 6494-5 and GM 6494-5, and genes of Vitis amurensis and Vitis vinifera are included. Although it is clearly a hybrid from a botanical point of view, it is not considered as such. Strictly speaking, these are prohibited within the EU for quality wines and local wines.

The variety was named in honour of the president of Société vosgienne de viticulture et...

The red grape variety (also Geilweilerhof 67-198-3, GF. 67-198-3) is an interspecific new variety between Diana (1) x Chambourcin. It contains genes from Vitis labrusca, Vitis lincecumii, Vitis rupestris and Vitis vinifera. The crossing of the hybrids was done in 1967 by Dr. Gerhardt Alleweldt (1927-2005) at the Institute Geilweilerhof in Siebeldingen/Pfalz. The name is derived from the famous diamond (140.5 carats) which was on the crown of Louis XV (1710-1774) at his coronation in 1722 and which...
