‘Aromella’ is a winter-hardy white wine grape with high potential productivity and aromatic/muscat wine characteristics. Vines are large in size and more winter-hardy than most French–American hybrid grapes. ‘Aromella’ is more disease-resistant than are cultivars of Vitis vinifera and requires a disease control program typical of what is used on many French–American hybrid grapes. ‘Cayuga White’, an earlier Cornell introduction, was used as a benchmark cultivar for all viticultural and enological comparisons.
