Richibucto River Wine Estate
We have approximately 20 varieties of cold-climate hybrid grapes. The majority of our grapes are either French hybrids (Marechal Foch, Leon Millot, etc) or Minnesota hybrids (Sabrevois, Marquette, Raddison, etc) Hybrids are bred from crossing Vitis vinifera, and focusing on obtaining traits that are able withstand our cold Canadian winters, ripen in a shorter growing season, and be less prone to disease. This is done by careful selective breeding. Wines from hybrid grapes are quickly gaining popularity worldwide, known as the "Modern Varieties," and known for a "clean" taste, and producing crisp whites, and balanced reds. Hybrids are also producing some of the worlds top sparkling wines. Read more on Hybrids HERE.
