Carminoir

The lovely breed from the Zürichsee

The Carminoir variety was created at the Swiss Federal agricultural research institute Agroscope in Wädenswil.

Its mother is the Pinot Noir variety; the father, Cabernet Sauvignon. Like its father, Carminoir is late-maturing, and thus suits only the best locations. In return, the grape – much like its mother – can be very productive. It seems most comfortable in Valais and Ticino. The blue-black grapes can be pressed into color-rich, powerful, and tannic wines, with very complex aromas.

This still nascent vine is one of the few varieties which has no synonym
