The Rougeon Grape
Rougeon is a dark-skinned French-American hybrid grape, known for its ability to make simple, tasty wine. The vine produces medium-sized compact clusters of fruit with a brilliant red hue, making it an ideal blending ingredient. Although the grape vines are hardy, production can be erratic causing as little as twice a year or once every two years.
Like all grapes, Rougeon is susceptible to disease, particularly downy mildew and powdery mildew. These diseases have the potential to reduce vine growth, yield, quality and winter hardiness. Black rot and botrytis, as well as sensitivity to sulfur can also be seen with the Rougeon grapes.
