OK Here's the answer !

Wine Quiz Answer: D. Riparia Gloire, SO 4, Mgt 101-14, Couderc 3309

Grapevines are often grown on rootstock. Properly selected rootstock for an area can facilitate disease prevention (like phyloxera), and may bring on earlier ripening, and may compensate for overly wet or dry soil, and other positive effects.

Down here in Florida citrus uses the same technic. Root stock may be from something that has be developed over time with years of testing or something as simple as sour orange. And yes, it's so sour you can't drink the juice or eat the fruit!
