Info about the grape variety

Grape variety: Chenin Blanc
Traditional (planted before 1900 | 9 HA in Switzerland (0,06%)

A variety from the Loire (F) where it is mentioned in the surroundings of Anjou by Rabelais in "Gargantua" in the 16th century, Chenin Blanc takes its name from the Montchenin monastery in Touraine. DNA tests have shown that Chenin Blanc is the natural offspring of Savagnin, and a full-sibling of both Trousseau and Sauvignon Blanc. Prone to grey mould, Chenin Blanc can produce a wide range of wines, from sparkling to dry, mellow or sweet. In Switzerland, its few territories are mainly around Geneva, with a few in Valais and the canton of Vaud.
