LeNoir & Blanc du Bois

Posted by Cathy Shore, Mar 8, 2010.

While discussing pruning techniques with a chap in Texas he told me he has just planted a small vineyard with LeNoir and Blanc du Bois.  I have absolutely no idea what type of wine these grapes might produce.  I presume they are hybrid, developed for disease resistance?  Can anyone shed some light on this - can they make quality wine?

For Texas Black Spanish check out these sites:

And for the humidity-and-related-disease white, check out these:

Looks like growing conditions are rough down there, and grape histories convoluted.

Meant to say 'humidity-and-related-disease-resistent white', though of course that's also a reason why the Texas Black is grown...

Torre di Pietra 2009 Black Spanish Reserve (red table wine) was recently awarded a Silver medal at the National Women's Wine Competition held in Santa Rosa, California.
