Welcome to our latest installment of #WinephabetStreet brought to you by Dracaena Wines and Trio North Wildwood. In this series, Debbie Gioquindo and I work our way through the wine world one letter each month. We discuss the characteristics and history of the grape, as well as suggested wine pairings. So uncork, unscrew or saber that bottle and connect with us as we chat, laugh and drink wine all in a laid back atmosphere.
B is for Baco Noir
We are extremely thankful to Carlo DeVito, who not only gave us an incredible webinar, but came back to do it a second time after we had some technical difficulties. Baco Noir is what is considered a hybrid grape. It was created by crossing two different species of vitis. Typical grape vines, such as Cabernet Franc or Sauvignon Blanc belong to vitis vinifera. However, there are other species of vitis such as lambrusca and riparia. These “Modern Varieties.” were created to provide fruit that is resistant to powdery mildew, other fungal diseases, nematodes, and phylloxera.
