Our Feedback
I've just read your little thing about being organic or not on your website and I'd like to congratulate you on being such a breath of fresh air! I'm a keen gardener and also a geneticist and I get so frustrated with the way people who know nothing about things confuse matters by using scientific terms incorrectly. "Organic" is a prime example of this, and it's wonderful that there are still people out there who will not jump on the PC bandwagon and are willing to stand up and put something honest out there for all to see! You cannot imagine how impressed I am with you, congratulations and a big heartfelt "thank you"!

A classic white grape variety that was first grown in the Loire region of France, and today is used in many Loire wines such as Anjou and Vouvray. The Loire area is of course one of the cooler areas of France which produces a drier wine from Chenin Blanc; we think similar wines could be expected from UK grown vines. In South Africa, where it is now the most widely grown white variety, it produces clean and crisp wines with a unique flavour often likened to Greengages.

Despite being early to bud, the fruit takes a long time to grow and mature - and so we think that, apart from in the warmest parts of the UK, it is unlikely that the fruit will ripen fully before the onset of Winter - and so growing under protection is recommended.

The mature fruits are are fairly small and green in colour. The juice that can be sweetened for drinking, or fermented to make a fine table wine.

  • Originally from France.
  • Late-Season fruit ripening (probably too late for most of the UK outside).
  • Winter wood ripening is good - so can be grown both outdoors or under protection (greenhouse, polytunnel or conservatory) - though to guarantee fruit ripening we recommend protected growing.
  • Can be trained using either the cane replacement method or spur pruning.
  • Self fertile.
  • Fruit contains seeds.
