The History of Chambourcin: A French-American Hybrid Grape

Chambourcin is a hybrid grape variety that was developed in the 1960s by French vintners by crossing two different types of grapes. This allowed them to create a grape that was resistant to pests and disease while also providing a rich and complex flavor. Wolf Gap Vineyard is dedicated to producing only the highest quality wines, and our 2017 Chambourcin is no exception. Our 2017 Chambourcin boasts a deep, rich red color and is infused with highlights of black cherry, giving it a fruit-forward sweetness that is perfectly complemented by its smoky finish. The result is a complex and flavorful wine that will delight your senses with every sip. The grapes used to make our 2017 Chambourcin are carefully hand-picked and aged to perfection, resulting in a wine that is both elegant and flavorful. Our winemakers carefully monitor the fermentation process and age the wine in oak barrels to enhance its complexity and depth of flavor. 

Food Pairings: Versatile and Delicious Options

When it comes to food pairings, our 2017 Chambourcin is a versatile wine that pairs well with a variety of dishes. The wine’s medium body and dryness make it an excellent choice for pairing with grilled meats, roasted vegetables, and aged cheeses. Its fruit-forward notes also make it an excellent pairing for dessert or enjoyed on its own as a relaxing after-dinner drink. We also recommend serving our 2017 Chambourcin with grilled steak, lamb chops, or roasted pork tenderloin. The wine’s smoky notes and rich flavors are an excellent complement to the bold flavors of these meats.
