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 »

  • Typically my least favorite holiday, but somehow this year I got roped into hosting a party for Halloween. The idea of a wine related costume struck me as not really a great option, since everyone knows I like wine, but maybe I just haven't thought of the right theme.So...any ideas on encorporating a wine theme into a Halloween costume?Let's go ...

  • Bacchus Selection Muscat 2009

    Snoothrank:

    Annoying cellophane cork wrapper. Very pleasant floral and citrus aroma. The flavor is not as good, tho - some confectioner's sugar, a touch of caramel, and a bit of lemon peel. The lack of fruit and character makes it taste a bit like an alcopop, but it is still drinkable. Read More

  •  OK, add together Parker's influence over the past decade or two, Chinese money over the past few years, and a little bit of marketing acumen by LVMH, the Bordelaise and even the odd Southern Californian. What results? Hopefully a bubble in prices that can't continue indefinitely, after an event like the likely Chinese bubble burst within a coup... Read More

  • In case you missed it, the world ends in a few days.Here's hoping everyone enjoys a nice bottle of something good.  Normally I'd suggest a red but I can see the case for a nice, crisp white.Cheers all!(BTW - there's some dispute about the exact time.  A few people think we have another year.  Best not to take any chances though.)http://www.may21...
