While its parentage is a mystery, the recent popularity of the Chambourcin grape is as clear as the sunny mountain valley sky. This adaptable French hybrid yields large clusters of deep red grapes in the cool mountain climate, and produces a medium-bodied wine with berry aromas and a rich purple color.

The most rugged vine in the yard is the Seyval Blanc, a white grape tough enough to withstand the cold nights of the mountain valley. Seyval grapes yield a crisp white wine that pleases both wine drinkers who prefer dry wine and those who like a sweeter wine.

Accomplices: Chicken grape salad with nuts and celery, among other things.

Hey Mac, you better not be making any hooch when the Revinoor comes knockin' on your door. But if you are, give 'im some of this wine. Better yet, offer it up with brunch or dessert. And if that doesn't work, you can always make a clean sneak out the back.

Accomplices: chocolate and strong cheeses like roquefort, gorgonzola, or a sharp cheddar.
