An artificial cross of Pinot Noir and Cabernet Sauvignon, Carminoir was created in 1982 at the Agroscope Research Centre in Pully (Switzerland) with the goal of obtaining a richer variety than Pinot Noir, which was resistant to grey mould. A late-ripening variety, Carminoir is not common in Switzerland, limited to the hottest regions of Valais and Ticino, where it gives wines that are colourful, strong and rich in tannins, used for blends or as a single variety.
