(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.
