Regent

Regent - this all-rounder can do almost anything. Tastes like a wine from the deepest South and looks good with its deep dark red. In addition, Regent smells wonderful: like sweet, ripe fruit and freshly cooked red groats.

Regent evokes memories of the warmth of the south. Another advantage: Regent has a big plus on the eco-account. As it is resistant to fungal infections, pesticides can be saved in the vineyard quite massively. An early maturity, the dark color and a high resistance to winter frosts, too, speak for the variety. However, the variety does not like cold and windyvineyards; here it tends to ripen irregularly (millerandage).
The Institute for grapevine breeding Geilweilerhof succeeded in crossing (Silvaner x Müller-Thurgau) x Chambourcin in 1967, resulting in Regent. First plantations on experimental farms were made in 1985. Only in 1996, the grape variety was released for cultivation. The approval took longer than for any drug.
In Rheinhessen, the Regent vines cover an area of approximately 639 hectares (2% of the total vineyard area).
Even thou the typical Regent style is still being worked out, there already is a clear favourite: Powerful wines with a tasteabletannins structure. The aromas of plums or currants are remind of well-known international red wines.
The wines accompany meat dishes with concentrated sauces, a leg of lamb, an oxtail ragout or a game dish and well matured mountain cheese.
