Melon-de-Bourgogne

Melon de Bourgogne is the grape used to make Muscadet from the lower reaches of the Loire Valley and is known to have an affinity for seafood. This grape seems to have found a new home in the Willamette Valley and this wine is very reminiscent of a Muscadet. It is crisp, bright, earthy and mineral driven. Refreshing and crying out for seafood to pair. John Grochau feels that this is his best Melon.

I’ve had the great pleasure of traveling around Oregon and beyond to find the most unique wines, beers, coffees, zero proof beverages, ciders and meads. This work – meeting the people who make the drinks that line our shelves – means the world to me, and I’m more than happy to share these great finds. Check back often for more suggestions!
