Regent
Regent is a dark-skinned inter-specific hybrid grape variety. It has a broad resistance against the most significant fungal diseases which affect grapes.
Regent was created in 1967 by Professor Gerhardt Alleweldt by crossing Diana, a Silvaner x Müller-Thurgau, it was released for cultivation in the first German region in 1996. It is at present among the most important new fungal-resistant quality grape variety world-wide, especially in German wine regions.

Regent wines are color intensive red wines with moderate acidity, can have rather much tannin and show aromas of cherries or blackcurrants. The wines often reach high alcohol levels since Regent tends to reach high must weights. Some better German versions are matured in barriques.

The cultivated area in Germany was 2,183 hectares in 2006, with an increasing trend. This made it Germany's 12th most cultivated variety, and the most cultivated hybrid grape variety.
