Chambourcin Wine Details
Price: $14.00 per bottle

Description: Chambourcin has often been considered the best of the French-American hybrid grape varieties of our time. It is a prolific grape that makes a medium bodied wine with a ruby red color. Surprise! Reminiscent of a port. A very luscious sweet red, so balanced that dry wine drinkers love it too – the perfect holiday treat. Try it mulled (warmed) with cinnamon and cloves. Great with dark chocolate! A wonderful after dinner drink!

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.
