Ravat 51 - what Vignoles use to be called. This is a dry white wine made with Vignoles grapes

UTOPIA 2016

The Wine:

Formerly known as “Ravat 51,” this is a dry Vignoles that shows off the variety’s signature pineapple character.  The label features a painting of our vineyard by famed local landscape artist Billyo O’Donnell.  [0.0% residual sugar]

The Grape:

Vignoles (pronounced veen-YOLE) produces moderate-sized, compact clusters, and in Missouri it is typically picked near the end of August or early September.  This grape produces a wine that has a luscious floral aroma and fruity flavors of pineapple, pears, and apricot.

Ravat 51 is the original name of the Vignoles grape. It was bred in France around 1930 by J.F. Ravat, and was brought to the U.S. in 1949. As of 2011, it was the second most widely planted wine grape in Missouri.

Blumenhof began growing Vignoles in 1983 at our main vineyard in Treloar, Missouri.  In 1987 we planted an additional acre in Dutzow (the vines closest to the winery).  We currently have 4 acres of Vignoles planted in our vineyards.
