Alibernet

Alibernet is a red grape variety that is a hybrid of Alicante Bouschet and Cabernet Sauvignon. It was developed in the Czech Republic in the 1950s, specifically at the Pernář Breeding Station of Fruit Growing in Holovousy. Here's some information about Alibernet:

Varietal Origin: Alibernet originated in the Czech Republic through controlled breeding, and it is a cross between Alicante Bouschet and Cabernet Sauvignon. The aim was to create a grape variety that combined the positive attributes of both parent varieties.

Taste Profile: Wines made from Alibernet grapes often have a rich and intense flavor profile. They can exhibit dark fruit characteristics such as blackberry and black currant, along with notes of spices and herbs. The grape's Cabernet Sauvignon parentage contributes to structured tannins and good aging potential.

Regional Styles: Alibernet is primarily cultivated in the Czech Republic and Slovakia. It has adapted well to the Central European climate and is used to produce varietal wines as well as blended wines. The grape's ability to ripen reliably in cooler climates has contributed to its popularity in these regions.

Interesting Fact: The name "Alibernet" is derived from its parent varieties Alicante Bouschet and Cabernet Sauvignon. The grape was specifically bred to thrive in the conditions of Central Europe.

Alibernet wines offer a unique expression of the terroir of Central Europe and showcase the successful efforts of grape breeders to develop varieties that are well-suited to the climatic conditions of the region.
