A terrifc new garden variety, bred for colder Northern European performance, as it is hardy down to -25C, and yet still crops well. You will not have heard of it as a wine variety, as it doesn’t do as well in warmer climes – this one is producing wine in Finland and Latvia, so will perform well all across the UK. It is also a good dual purpose grape, making a good eating table grape as well, with pineapple overtures according to the taste experts. An easy to manage vine, responds well to pruning and training, and makes it good for growing in larger pots, as well as training up walls, trellises and arches. You will get your first grapes to pick next year.
