Bacchus Vines

Vines

Parentage: Silvaner x Riesling cross with Muller-Thurgau

Description: Bacchus is recommended as the best outdoor white wine variety for the UK climate. The well filled branches provide well rounded, flavoursome fruits that juice into a delicious wine. Grown on a large scale in several vineyards in England.

History: Developed at the Geineilerhof Institute for Grape Breeding in Palatinate by Peter Morio in 1933. Released in 1972.

Outdoor Vine Growing Conditions: Vines need reasonably deep, free-draining soil and plenty of sunlight to ripen properly and will happily grow on any good garden soil and sunny site in southern Britain. They can be trained against walls, on trellis or over arches. Remove all flowers for the first two years after planting. Allow only a few bunches of grapes to grow for the first two years.
