  • About

Humagne Rouge, relatively rare red wine grape of the Swiss Valais region whose wines are wild, rustic, and relatively high in tannins. They are particularly recommended with venison. dna profiling at changins and Aosta showed that this variety is identical to cornalin of the Valle d’aosta and confirmed that it is not related to humagne blanche.
