Bacchus - white vine variety


Bred in the Pfalz and given the Latin name for Dionysos, the Greek God of Wine, Bacchus is a crossing of (Silvaner x Riesling) x Müller-Thurgau. It is a large yielder that, with sufficient ripeness, can produce fruity wines with a distinctive, aromatic bouquet and a light Muscat tone.

Bacchus is grown primarily in the Pfalz (The Palatinate), Rheinhessen, Franken and Nahe regions.
