Varietal Definition
Created by Elmer Swenson, this white grape is derived from an Ontario x MN 78 cross. Edelwies is disease resistant and very winter-hardy, reportedly to -30 F (approx. -34 C). Along with other Swensen varieties, it is an important varietal in the northern United States. The vine produces large, loose clusters, with pale gold berries. The grapes of the vine are often used to make sweet white wines or occasionally left on the vine long enough to produce icewines. Edelweiss is very disease resistant
