Pantelis Zamanidis, Nicholas E. Korres, Dimitris Argyropoulos


The morphological description of the vine variety Bacouri (Vitis Vinifera L. spp. sativa) that is based on descriptors defined by the Organization Internationale de la Vigne et du Vin (OIV) is presented in this paper. The variety Bacouri was investigated as being a valuable Greek variety for the production of high-quality red wines of different classes. Morphological characteristics, technological features with recommendations for red wine production using micro wine-making methods and the economic importance of the variety are provided. Its value in vine breeding has also been taken under consideration. The origin of the variety is the Peloponnese region, in the south part of Greece and it is a descendant of the region’s wild species of Vitis sylvestris.
