White Grapes


The name of this crossing of Silvaner and Weissburgunder derives from its breeder, Peter Morio, and its characteristically strong, rich bouquet that is reminiscent of Muscat grapes.

It adds a spicy touch to a blended wine. During the past twenty years, as the popularity of rather sweet, flowery wines has declined, the vineyard area devoted to Morio-Muskat has dropped by fifty percent. Nevertheless, it is still planted in the Pfalz, where it was bred, and in Rheinhessen.
