Pinot Meunier Grape Vine

Pinot Meunier is most well known as one of the 3 grapes used in the production of Champagne, and though it doesn’t have the name recognition of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir, it is crucial to the production of Champagne and lends wonderful fruit aromas and higher acidity to the wine. Pinot Meunier can also be grown and ripen reliably in much colder areas than Pinot Noir or Chardonnay, making it a reliable insurance crop in off years, or a varietal to grow in cold microclimates. Some winemakers produce Pinot Meunier as a single varietal wine with interesting results.
