Vignoles (pronounced veen-yole) 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 also a popular choice for white wine blends. Vignoles grapes are hardy enough to handle Show-Me State winters, and are one of the earlier ripening grape varietals in the state. Vignoles' crowd-pleasing capabilities and array of wine styles make it an incredibly popular choice among the wine-buying public.
Vignoles is celebrated during the month of August.
Vignoles accounts for 15.5% of all grapes grown in Missouri.
