Phoenix Wine Grape

Phönix or Phoenix is a green grape created by Dr. Gerhardt Alleweldt (1927–2005) at the Geilweilerhof Institute for Grape Breeding in Siebeldingen, Germany in 1964, by crossing the Vitis vinifera variety Bacchus with the hybrid grape Villard Blanc. It has compact bunches of large grapes with a muscat aroma and flavor. It is designed to be resistant to disease. Can also be served as a table grape. Table grapes are grapes intended for eating while fresh, as opposed to grapes grown for solely wine production.
