Vidal Blanc

Vidal Blanc has proven to be amongst the versatile varietals in North American viticulture. In Canadian vineyards, this hybrid has excelled in the production of Ice Wine, from Nova Scotia to British Columbia. This has earned Vidal superior status among all other French-American hybrids.

This is the Designated Viticultural Area (DVA) status. However, this honor is reserved for its Ice Wine incarnation only. The grape is well suited to cold climates, due to its mid-season ripening and its ability to produce good crops from secondary buds, in the event of late spring frosts. This makes Vidal tough enough to withstand the cold of regions like the Finger Lakes of New York State, many Mid-Western states and the Niagara Peninsula.

Vidal Blanc on Snooth

  • Hopkins Vineyard White Blend Vineyard Reserve 2003


    The bouquet is lovely with strong fruit overtones. The wine is a dry white wine, clean with a really nice finish. I detected strong notes of berries and - maybe - peach. The tasting notes indicate it would pair well with spicier foods such as Thai or Indian. The Vineyard Reserve was awarded a Bronze Medal from the American Wine Society. Read More

  • Jackson-Triggs Vidal Icewine Proprietor's Reserve Vidal Blanc Ontario 2004


    This is a tasty desert wine. I found hints of apricot, peach, and apple. The finish was very smooth and creamy. I am hoping that the '05-'07s that I have turn out as awesome. Read More
