Bacchus

Named after the Roman god of wine, Bacchus is found in Canada’s westernmost province of British Columbia, in the United Kingdom, and most widely in its native Germany, where Bacchus flourishes in the heart of German bulk wine production and beer country. Two-thirds of Germany’s Bacchus plantings are found in the Rheinhessen with much of the rest in the Franconia district, an area famous for its Bavarian wheat beers and the unique smoky brews known as Rauchbier.

This productive cultivar was created by crossing Müller-Thurgau with a Silvaner-Riesling cross. Bacchus is a white wine-producing varietal that adapts to a broad range of climates and benefits from its ability to grow in less favorable vineyard sites than Riesling and even Müller-Thurgau. It produces full-bodied wines, with attractive fruit and floral characteristics, similar to Muscat. As an early budder, Bacchus can be susceptible to spring frosts, and its typical lack of acidity can prove challenging, particularly in hot vintages. In Read more »

  • Heart of England Bacchus England Dry Bacchus 2006

    Snoothrank:

    English wine hasn't traditionally had a great reputation, but this is one nice drinking wine. Very similar to a Sauvignon Blanc, it's light, fruity, and crisp. Only downside is that it seems to be very hard to find! Read More
