Varietal Definition
Muscat Ottonel:
Mid-19th century cross thought to be between the Chasselas and a Muscat varietal grape. Fairly widely grown in the cooler regions of central and eastern Europe where it is best utilized as a late harvest white wine. Limited plantings are also to be found in the Finger Lakes region of western N.Y., and elsewhere in North America.
