Well.....none other than Zinfandel. I have, of course, followed Tribidrag from the very start.

As posted on CaroleMeredith's FaceBook page:
My Croatian research colleagues have long suspected that the old Croatian grape variety Tribidrag was the same as Crljenak kastelanski, which is the modern Croatian name for Zinfandel. They have now confirmed this by purifying and analyzing DNA from an old herbarium specimen of Tribidrag and comparing it to Zinfandel. The DNA profiles are a perfect match. Tribidrag is documented to have been grown in Croatia for at least 500 years.

Fictional sounding Tribidrag sounds as though it ought be from Brobdingnag.

Cheers, Tom,

That's what I call Old Vines.
