Regent

Red diamond

The Regent is the crown jewel in the portfolio of organic winegrowers. This hybrid contains a small proportion of non-European forest vines, which are highly resistant to adverse weather conditions and diseases. Thus the Regent, through inheritance, belongs to the “PIWIs”, the fungus-resistant varieties. Its trump card, however, is that the wines taste extraordinarily good – something which is far from guaranteed with crosses. It shines with velvety tannins and aromas of cherries and berries, and is ideal for barrique ageing. It was bred in 1967 in the Palatinate region. In the meantime, it has also gained a foothold in this part of the world, especially in the vineyards of Zurich and Schaffhausen. Wineries in England and Belgium appreciate it for its high frost tolerance. The Regent was named after a famous diamond, found by a slave in 1701 in a mine in India. It graced the first crown of Louis XIV, and later, Napoleon’s sword pommel.
