Discover the grape variety: Villard blanc
Interspecific crossing between 6468 Seibel and 6905 Seibel or subéreux, obtained by the House of Seyve-Villard of Saint Vallier in the Drôme. Together with Villard noir or 18315 Seyve-Villard, these were the two most widely propagated direct-producing hybrids. The white Villard has also been used as a progenitor for new varieties. It can be found in Hungary, Mexico, Brazil, Canada, the United States and Japan. In the south of France, some old vines still exist. We have also found it in private homes where it is grown in pergolas for the consumption of its excellent grapes at full maturity. Today, it is on the verge of extinction, although it is registered in the Official Catalogue of wine grape varieties, list A1.
