Wine grape vines
Hardy hybrid vines
Red wine variety
This section describes a few of the main wine varieties grown in Quebec. Our harsh climate led local wine growers to search out new vine varieties and introduce interesting new flavours to wine lovers. Why not them a try?
Another variety from Elmer Swenson (ES2-3-21). Established in Quebec for roughly 10 years. This grape is not as disease resistant as Sabrevois, but is equally hardy. Unifortunate tendency to droop. Wich increases manual labour. Hardy to -38 °C. May be overly vigorous and require a very early bud break. Fruity, slightly acidic, well-bodied, low tannins. Excellent wine.
