Elmo with Dracaena Wines and Kitchen 330

Welcome to our latest installment of #WinephabetStreet brought to you by Dracaena Wines and Kitchen 330. 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.

D is for Dornfelder

Today we head back to Winephabet Street. Today’s letter is D and it stands for Dornfelder. An interesting grape that was created when August Herold crossed Helfensteiner with Heroldrebe in 1956. Typically, the red wines of Germany are known for their lighter color and body. However, Dornfelder led the way for producing the more internationally accepted style of deep color. While you are sipping and listening, please rate, review and subscribe to Exploring the Wine Glass to help others find us. So sit back unscrew, uncork or saber a bottle and enjoy learning about this not so well known grape variety, Dornfelder.

  1. PRIE Winery in Lodi, CA makes a 100% local Dornfelder that is dry, with blueberry notes and is 12.7% alcohol. It’s a fun wine and very unique in flavor from other local varietals. Cheers!
