The Bronner is a vine obtained in Germany, in 1975, also at the Research Institute of Friborg with a parenting path in part similar to the previous hybrid (Solaris). This is a Merzling x Geisenheim 6494 intersection, where this last hybrid differs from the previous Gm 6493, for difference in the final contribution of V. vinifera which, in this case, is Saint Laurent, while in Solaris it is Muskat Ottonel. The Bronner grape belongs to a family of vines resistant to fungal diseases. These white grape vines are leading, through a careful selection of clones, to good enological results, comparable to those obtained with “European” vines. The excellent resistance to diseases of the Bronner allows to reduce as much as possible the interventions necessary to combat any infections in the vineyard.
