As we are still in the progress of translating the pages to German, not all pages are in German if you chose the German version. 


Domina is a dark-skinned grape variety developed specifically with Germany's wine regions in mind. First bred in Pfalz by viticulturists Peter Morio and Bernhard Husfeld in 1927. The variety aimed to combine the high yields of Portugieser with the high quality of Pinot Noir (Spätburgunder).

As is the case for many crossings, Domina was not released for commercial use in Germany until the 1970s, a full 50 years after its conception at the Geilweilerhof Institute for Grape Breeding.

In the vineyard, Domina is productive and resistant to disease, making it somewhat attractive to growers. However, yields must be kept in check to avoid thin, watery wines.

The Domina is a grape variety with good color, body, and tannins, as well as generous yields, but the Domina wines have rather less finesse than their famous parent.
