Cabernet Cortis was bred in 1982 by crossing Cabernet Sauvignon x Solaris. It is therefore the «child» of Solaris.
It inherited the resistances of Solaris, facilitating organic farming. Furthermore, it got Solaris’s good tolerance to frost. Cabernet Cortis ripens early enabling us to harvest the fully ripe berries already before the first rains of autumn.DISCOVER MORE
