(aka. Elbing, Monbaden)

How low this once mighty grape has fallen! There was a time when Burger produced more wine in California than any other single variety. In fact, Burger produced more wine in the Golden State than all other white varieties combined. However, Burger has plunged from its perch as the most planted vinifera variety in the pre-varietal revolution days. Today, it's a non-contender. Originally, Burger’s capability to produce generous yields and its tolerance for hot and dry conditions gave it a niche in California’s San Joaquin Valley. Its Central Valley plantings still play an important role in the jug wine and cooler market. Recent DNA investigations at UC Davis have revealed Burger to be the offspring of the Cognac grapes Ugni Blanc and Folle Blanc. This shouldn’t be such a shock, considering its geographic origins in the Charentes department of France.

Mrs. Burger, you were a dutiful Central Valley mom
in the 1950s. You were ever reliable, ensuring that

  • Fish Eye Cabernet Sauvignon California 2006


    Purchased this wine for the value.Stood up very well to the grilled burger with blue cheese I paired it with. One of those times when I was actually surprised at how much better the meal was with the wine. I wasn't as fond of the wine alone. Read More

  • Layer Cake Malbec 2007


    Tasted this for the first time in January in a Las Vegas casino burger joint. I picked a cheaper glass off their list and was pleasantly surprised. Great fruit, easy drinking wine, perfect with a cheeseburger! Read More

  • Les Bourgeois Solay NV


    This is my family's favorite red wine. We love it and are trying to find a source here in Las Vegas, Nv. I would put it up against any contenders in the price range $10-30. I will probably resort to having it shipped to me. Read More

  • Château du Vampire Clautiere Vineyard 2007


    Lots of great acid that pairs well with food. This is a burger wine folks. In the vampire tradition get a nice rare BLOODY cheesburger with this and you will not be disappointed. The cabernet franc really shines. In a blind tasting I would guess that it was a high end Long Island wine. Read More
