Chambourcin Wine Details

Description: A dry red wine produced from our 15-year-old Chambourcin vines. Aged in American oak barrels, this medium-bodied red wine has aromas of cedar and vanilla. Rich blackberry and cherry flavors round out this very enjoyable wine. This wine was a bronze medal winner at the 2006 Indiana State Fair.

Varietal Definition
A french-american hybrid used to make red wines with fruity flavors and some herbaceousness. Grown in the cooler regions of Eastern U.S. and Canada. Decreasing acreages also found in Europe; due to stringent European Union rules these varieties cannot be blended with traditional varieties.
