Grape Varieties - Cramposie Selectionata

Cramposie Selectionata

Weird one this. Cramposie was an autochthonous variety in the Dragasani region of Romania, but was unsatisfactory. Having "functionally female flowers" (Wine Grapes - Jancis Robinson, Julia Harding and José Vouillamoz) there were problems of bunches containing grapes of different sizes.

Then, in 1972, a seedling of Cramposie was selected at the research centre in Dragasani and this has become known as Cramposie Selectionata. Furthermore, there was no control to the pollination, thus we have no idea of the identity of the other parent.
