Solaris (grape)

Solaris (grape)

Solaris is a variety of grape used for white wine. It was created in 1975 at the grape breeding institute in Freiburg, Germany by crossing the variety Merzling (which is Seyve-villard 5276 x (Riesling x Pinot Gris)) with Gm 6493 (Saperavi Severnyi x Muscat Ottonel). [ [ Vine variety: Solaris] , accessed on March 25, 2008] Solaris is thus a hybrid grape (rather than a pure " Vitis vinifera"), since it contains several hybrid grapes in its pedigree.

Solaris was the product of a programme for breeding disease-resistant grape varieties, and has good resistance against fungal attacks. As it is a hardy variety, it is commonly grown in northern European countries with marginal climate for winemaking, such as England and Denmark.

The variety Solaris is also known under its official breeding number FR 240-75 and received protection in 2001.
