Vidal Blanc: Sip, Savor, CelebrateVidal Blanc Grapes

Crisp, clean and refreshing. Vidal Blanc is the simple yet delightful wine for your glass this summer. 

Vidal Blanc (vee-dahl-blahnc) is a French American hybrid that is known for its hardiness and ability to tolerate colder climates due to its thicker skin. This varietal was developed by a French grape breeder in the 1930s and is now a staple in Missouri wine country.

This grape produces wine that varies from dry to semi-dry and is sometimes used in blends and produced as a sweet, lste harvest dessert style wine and even sparkling wines. This varietal produces a medium bodied, crisp and clean wine, making it a refreshing choice for summers in Missouri.

With notes of pear, apple, citrus and other fruits, this wine pairs exceptionally well with a variety of foods like grilled chicken, seafood, broccoli & asparagus, pasta & cream sauce, pine nuts & melon, citrus, sushi, soup and mozzarella.
