De Chaunac

Originally labeled as Siebel 9549, this French-American hybrid was later renamed De Chaunac after the Canadian enologist, Adhemar F. de Chaunac. At one time, it was the most planted hybrid in the cool vineyards of Canada, and the Northeast and Midwest United States. It can be very productive and winter hardy to -15 F (approx. -26 C.). De Chaunac yields a balanced and fruity wine of good quality, with generally low to mild tannin levels.

With your birth records lost, and accused of
being sluggish and lazy, you sat in a French
orphanage. Then, Monsieur Ademar de Chaunac,
glimpsing your potential, adopted you and
immigrated to Canada. In the new world you
were eager to prove him correct, behaving and
performing brilliantly. You are a welcomed
part of the community in the Northeast and
Midwest, over half a century later. – Description from Appellation America (view original content)

  • Bowers Harbor Vineyards Red Wagon Red NV


    A sweeter style red wine, with ample fruit. Very smooth with a soft, easy finish. My friend called it a 'red wine with training wheels.' Great wine for wine drinkers who find red wines to dry. I enjoyed it chilled just a little bit. Read More

  • Haight-Brown Picnic Red NV


    The tasting notes describe this as a light, fruity table wine made from Marechal Foch grapes. It is only fermented for 3 months, and the winemakers recommend serving it chilled. The best way I have to describe it is that I found it to be thin - I didnt find much depth to this wine - and the bite at the end is quite strong. With strong notes of... Read More

  • Cameo Vineyards Ca Zin del Sol NV


    This is literally the best tasting DeChaunac I have ever had. The flavor is subtle, but the immediate after taste is that of light fruit and milk chocolate. Amazing. Two thumbs up. Read More

    Wine review by shirleytipsy

  • Just a little heads up from an old curio shop (or a growing wine market). Poland is not typically thought of as a wine-producing country and that is a fact for numerous reasons. In brief - the weather, the communists (nationalization of fields + USSR's economic plan that did not include wine production in Poland), also terribly harsh law related... Read More
