Chambourcin Wine Details

Description: It is not surprising that this high-yielding, cold hardy grape has made its way from Europe to the cooler-climate areas of North America. It has been planted in America since the 1970s, where it is found mostly in the northeast. Our Chambourcin offers herbaceous and fruit aromas, combined with excellent structure, a result of the grapes thick skin, high tannins and good acidity.

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.
