Vin Sans Indication Géographique - Genouillet

Description de l'image

  Since 2005, Maryline and JeanJacques have been trying to revive an ancient variety of grape of the Berry county : the Genouillet.

This variety used to be the major one present on the Quincy vineyard before the phylloxera crisis. Its desappearance is due to the influx of other hybrid vines more productive and less susceptible to disease.

Found back in the 80s in a vineyard next to Issoudun, it was multiplied and replanted in the conservatory vineyard of Tranzault, which then helped to engraft the 150 vines of the experimentation planted in 2005 on the Villalin Winery. 

After few years of experimentation, 2012 will be the first time the Genouillet will be comercialized by the winery.

 

  In 2011, the Genouillet was tasted at the Euro Gusto of SlowFood, in Tours.

The grafting man takes a bud of genouillet and grafts it on another type of vine. Later, the graft will become a stock of Genouillet. This method muliplies the variety faster thanks to the old vine.
