This cold hardy grape cultivar was discovered in 1973 in a Missouri vineyard. While the official parentage is unknown, some believe it may be a cross of Pinot Noir and Chambourcin. These red grapes have large berries in loose clusters that mature late in season. Dry red, rosé and even sparkling wines can be crafted using St. Vincent grapes.
