Varietal Definition
Lucie Kuhlmann:
French-American hybrid suitable for producing red wine. Very vigorous, ripening early to mid-season. Wine is described as well-balanced and mild, with a taste reminiscent of Gamay profile. Has started to become more of a commercial variety in Quebec, with increased popularity due to its winter hardiness characteristics.
De Chaunac:
An early ripening french-american hybrid grape which gives a fruity, balanced red wine usually possessed of low to mild tannic content. Planted mainly in the cooler regions of the Northeast U.S. and Canada.
