Bacchus
The Bacchus is a white wine grape that was created by viticulturalist Peter Morio at the Geilweilerhof Institute for Grape Breeding in the Palatinate in 1933. He crossed a Silvaner x Riesling cross with Müller-Thurgau. Bacchus received varietal protection and was released for general cultivation in 1972. Its name is taken from Roman wine god Bacchus.
Bacchus can reach high must weights, and has no high requirement for sites. It ripens early, about the same time as Müller-Thurgau, and has a similar high productivity as that variety.

Bacchus wines can have powerful flavours and character, which have even been described as "exuberant", but only if it is allowed to ripen fully. Within Germany, Franken is considered as the source of some of the more successful varietal Bacchus wines.
