Meet the Grapes

 

 

Introducing the Reds…

 

Chambourcin

This French-American hybrid can produce wines of light to medium body with fruity aromas, as well as cherry and spicy or earthy complexities. This grape goes well with barbecue, pork and grilled dishes.

 

Merlot

These grapes produce red wine with flavors and aromas of black cherry, berries, plum, chocolate and some herbs. Merlot is popular with people trying to become accustomed to drier, more complex red wines, because it has low tannins, which makes it easier to drink than other red wines. It's well-suited to lighter foods that won't overwhelm its softer flavors.

 

Cabernet Franc

Grown predominantly in France, this grape's juice is usually blended with the juices of Merlot, Malbec and Cabernet Sauvignon grapes to produce blended red wines. However, Cabernet Franc is also produced as a stand-alone wine.

 

And the Whites…

 

Vidal Blanc

This white grape has a clean citrus flavor, which is perfect for making a dry to semi-dry full-bodied white wine, similar to an Italian dry white. It produces a wine with lemon and grapefruit aromas, perfect for pairing with seafood and poultry.

 

Traminette

The wine produced by this new grape, developed by Cornell University, has the elegant floral aroma and wonderful spicy flavor of its parent, the Gewürztraminer. Enjoy it with Asian dishes, as well as poultry and seafood.

 

Cayuga White

This grape produces an extremely palatable wine that is light and crisp, with aromas of apricot, melon or peach. Its semi-dry (or dry) white wine is similar to Sauvignon Blanc, Pino Grigio or a "light" White Riesling, making it a very nicely balanced white table wine.
