Sirius is a German white grape from a cross between Villard and Bacchus. This grape variety also has a high resistance to various diseases. The plant has relatively large bunches. The Sirius grape was our first planting in 1999.
Bacchus is a white German grape variety and originates from a cross between Sylvaner-Riesling and the Muller-Thurgau. The grape is known for its high productivity and early ripening which is ideal in cooler climates. In 2014 we planted the Bacchus as an additional white grape on the wine estate.
Johanniter is a white grape variety grown in the 60's as a mould resistant variety. It is a result of crosses between Riesling, Seyve-villard, Ruländer, and Gutedel. Harvest time is a little earlier in the year.
The grape is fairly resistant to downy mildew and powdery mildew and is also frost-resistant. The Johanniter is our latest addition to the range of white grapes.

The variety produces small to medium-sized blueberries on small to medium-sized, slightly compact bunches. Its leaves turn a beautiful red in the autumn.
