July 11, 2012 8-9pm PST: The Underappreciated. The Next Grape Stars of BC

HERE’S HOW THE CHAT WENT:

THE UNDERAPPRECIATED: THE NEXT GRAPE STARS OF BC 

All grape varieties seem to go through periods of popularity that eventually decline over time when consumers look to the new “hot” (or “cool” in the case of grape growing) thing.

What varieties do you think are currently underappreciated in BC? Are there varieties that used to be popular but now are not given their due? Are there varieties that  some wineries have made very popular but the wine consumers have not yet discovered?

We live in a wine growing region that is still highly experimental and is always looking for that next “star variety” that will be both well-suited for grape growing, winemaking as well as appeal to customers.  Tonight we will explore what some of these down trodden or yet-to-be-discovered varieties might be.
