Chambourcin Wine Details
Price: $12.00 per bottle

Description: Chambourcin is one of the more recent French hybrids, developed by Cornell University and first commercially available in the early 1960's. It's known for it's deep color, yet despite its rich appearance, it makes a light red wine, much like the fruity reds of northern Italy. Chambourcin makes a good choice for grilled foods, even if you slather on a hot and vinegary barbecue sauce.

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.
