  Niagara
Introduced in the Northeast USA in 1882. Used to create fruity white wines with strong "grapey" flavor, usually sweet finished, but also found in dry versions. Suitable also as a table grape. At its best when blended with a neutral wine.
  Seyval Blanc - Dry
A French-American hybrid grape that can be used to make high quality white wines of various styles. Crisp, fruity dry versions have sometimes been likened to French "Chablis" in aroma and taste. Wine intensity tends to be perceived as "thin", consequently either malolactic or barrel fermentation followed by oak aging is recommended to enhance quality. This variety is also one of the parents of Chardonel, a hybrid-grape cross sharing Chardonnay as the other parent.

  Vidal Blanc
Popular late-season maturing French-American hybrid white wine grape producing large clusters with fruity, floral flavors and good balance. Descended from the Ugni Blanc of France, (aka Trebbiano of Italy) and Rayon d'Or, it usually needs cluster thinning to achieve superior results. Made in a variety of styles - (i.e: Dry to sweet including late-harvest dessert style and ice wines). Cool region grapes vinified in a Rhine/Mosel manner are said to have a Riesling-like character.
