Souvignier Gris is a recent crossing of Cabernet Sauvignon x Bronner, that was bred in 1983 at he Institute for Viticulture in Freiburg.
Its foliage grows loosely and permit wind to go through. Combined with the thick skins of the berries it makes the variety resistant against oidium and botrytis. This helps us a lot, because the wet climate in Lucerne promotes these diseases.
