Vignoles is one of Missouri’s most versatile white grapes and a popular cultivar grown in the Midwest. This French-American hybrid produces wines that have range from dry, to sweet, to late harvest dessert wines. Vignoles is a popular choice for white wine blends.
Vignoles grapes are hardy enough to handle the Show Me State winters and are one of the earlier ripening grape varietals in the state. Vignoles' crowd-pleasing capabilities and versatility make it an incredibly popular choice among the wine-buying public.
Vignoles is celebrated during the month of August.
