About Vignoles White Wine

About Vignoles White Wine
Vignoles is an American white hybrid variety, grown most successfully in New York State as well as several midwest states such as Illinois, Missouri and Iowa. It is a relatively hearty grape, having good resistance to cold temperatures. Made primarily as a dry or off-dry white, there are a few late-harvest dessert wines made from Vignoles. Typical flavors include apple, pear, peach, with nougat and lemon custard in the sweeter versions.
