The Souvignier Gris is a cross between the famous blue Bordeaux variety cabernet sauvignon and De Witte Bronner. The grape was cultivated at Weinbauinstitut Freiburg in 1983. Because both parents are vitis vinifera grape varieties (= wine grapes), souvignier gris is not a hybrid variety, but a cross. It is an easy grape and suitable for conveniently located vineyards. The Johanniter is mold-resistant and ripens early. Furthermore, the grape is frost resistant, which makes it very suitable for coll climate regions.
