Seyval Blanc

Seyval Blanc is a versatile, productive French-American hybrid that ripens early in the fall harvest season. It was named for its creators, Bertille Seyve (along with his son-in-law, Villard), and typically showcases grapefruit, pineapple, and honeysuckle aromas. Seyval Blanc’s versatility means that it can be made in a wide variety of styles, from sparkling wines to rich, oaked varietals, or even used in blends, most often with Chardonnay. Seyval pairs well with chicken and game, or with herbed cheeses such as dill Havarti.
