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 »

  • Equus Run Vineyard Rosé Blend Bacchus Blush 2008

    Snoothrank:

    This is a semi-sweet rose made mostly from Riesling and Vidal Blanc grapes, although there is a minimal amount of Concord and Merlot grapes added to give the Blush its medium salmon color. On the nose, a perfumey, floral aroma dominated, although it was followed quickly by ripe pear and strawberry, pink grapefruit, lime, and a hint of burnt suga... Read More

  • Camel Valley Vineyard Camel Valley Bacchus Blanc 2007

    Snoothrank:

    Lightly mineral and floral nose of lemon and honeysuckle. Medium acidity with light pear and peach notes - could be mistaken for a Sauvignon Blanc. Crisp acidic finish on lemongrass and green apples. Excellent oily and rich mouthfeel throughout. 4% residual sugar, but barely noticeable. 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
