SuperGrape
When Science meets Nature
 

SuperGrape is relatively a new idea in the history of wine. Since the 20th century, by crossing of a few “traditional” grape varieties, viticulturalists have been working on “superior” grape variety with more aroma and greater resistance to frost damage and chlorosis.

Crossing of course happens in natural world, and the result might not also be positive. What viticulturalists do is trying to bring out the essence of each crossing grapes. So in DECO, we like to call these grape varieties SuperGrape because they represent only the best of their parents.

Taste SuperGrape and savour the Spirit of Science, and Love of Nature!
