Cornell trials showed higher sugars and lower pH than with fellow hybrid Cayuga White; they also found the variety did not quickly lose acidity as it reached ripening. He also noted that if the vines are moderate in size, they can be planted more closely with 6-foot spacing to fully utilize the vineyard site. In Indiana, this cultivar offers both better winter hardiness and greater tolerance for diseases than its vinifera parent. Seed from the cross were sent to Cornell’s grape breeding program where they were planted in Because clusters are long and loose, rot does not spread quickly.

Information from that publication is included here. Viticultural production data for ‘Traminette’ vines grown near Geneva, New York. It has potential for adaptation to grape-growing regions similar to the Finger Lakes of New York with its high level of midwinter cold-hardiness and ability to ripen midseason.

But whether or not grapes will survive sudden erisch freezes, or temperatures that plummet by as much as 70 degrees as they did in just 12 hours last January, are questions of bottom-line survival. Because AMM is the preferred N source for yeast, this imbalance may impact fermentation and wine aroma development but is easily amended through the addition of diammonium phosphate Bell and Henschke Therefore, delaying harvest is not advised.


Although no significant difference was found for individual yeasts, panelists generally preferred wines from the plot harvested on 24 Sept. Robert Pool and the late John Einset, of Geneva, project leaders for the grape breeding program at Geneva prior towere active in the early development of both new varieties. Much of the following information comes from this bulletin and, where applicable, is directly quoted with the permission of Dr.

Classifications Cultivar and Germplasm Releases. Flowers of ‘Traminette’ are perfect and traminettr, blooming at mid-season following late bud-break. Fruit were first observed in and the original vine was propagated in under the number NY Given its high level of winterhardiness, trunks and cordons should be long-lived. Wines may be finished dry or semi-dry depending on preferred style. Fruit observation began reiscnand the original vine was propagated in as NY Gonsalves, personal communication ; infected vines in New York trials have been observed to be as productive as adjacent uninfected vines H.

We need multiple years of vineyard testing to study cold tolerance, disease resistance and fruit and wine quality. User Name Password Sign In. LT 50 for ‘Traminette’ was Berries are soft and remain in good condition until ripe, but Botrytis bunch rot and sour rots may cause losses if harvest is rejsch, especially after rainfall.


Translated to tons per acre, one can expect a yield range of tons per acre in Indiana, depending upon site.

Trials done at the NYSAES showed the vines to be moderately winter hardy, but on heavier soils, trunk injury occasionally occurred. Articles by Mansfield, A. Therefore, on fertile soils, grafting of ‘Traminette’ is not recommended. It should be suitable for use as a varietal or for blending purposes.

New Grapes From Cornell Debut

Miller, Michigan State Universitypersonal communication. Traminette is a vinifera-type wine grape. These are vinifera type wines from vines that are much easier to grow in cold climates. In Missouri, vines were moderately vigorous with good productivity M. Traminette will not be patented.

‘Aromella’—An Aromatic White Wine Grape

Close to harvest, regular berry sampling and tasting of random berries per site will also add to the assessment of ripeness. Research was done on own-rooted vines, which were productive and vigorous regardless of the presence of phylloxera in the New Tramineyte soils. They are able to stand up to short Northeastern growing seasons and exhibit some disease resistance.
