New Grapes in Old Regions

This session will be presented by Jane A. Nickles, CSE, CWE 

The wine world has seen a flurry of new grapes being approved for (limited) use in traditional wine regions. Well-publicized examples include Voltis in Champagne, Marselan in Bordeaux, and Erbamat in Franciacorta. Such grapes may offer benefits—such as disease resistance and climate versatility—not seen in the traditional grapes of a region. As such, this trend is sure to grow, expand, and continue! This webinar—led by Jane A. Nickles, SWE’s Director of Education—will discuss some of these new grapes in old regions with a focus on the flavors, features, and benefits thereof.
