America doesn’t have the same winemaking history as Europe. So why would it use the same grapes? While international varieties still dominate vineyards on the West Coast, more and more American winemakers are experimenting with hybrid grapes that combine native North American and European genetics.
These vines give us a promising taste of what a more sustainable wine culture could look like in North America. A culture unique to us and our environment, that celebrates collaboration, adaptation, and healthy, chemical-free vineyards. Welcome to the world of hybrid grapes. We can’t wait for you to taste what comes next.
