Blue Heron Vineyards specializes in American and French-American Grapes.
Fredonia - an American grape grown in this area because of its tolerance of the growing season. It has the fruitiness and rich red color that local winemakers love and the versatility for making wine, jelly, juice and even pies
Marechal Foch - or simply Foch, is a favorite wine grape. This small, purple-skinned French-American hybrid, with its deeply colored juice, produces sturdy, flavorful and age-worthy reds. Its wines are acid-driven, making them naturally food-friendly. Tannin levels are minimal, which makes Foch easy to enjoy young, although the strong acidic backbone lends respectable aging potential. As a vine, Foch is winter-hardy and its fruit is early-ripening (mid to late August).
Chambourcin - a French-American Hybrid, is a red wine grape variety which has only been available since the 1960s. These vines have higher disease and pest resistance, and the wines produced are fruity in flavor. It is especially resistant to fungal diseases so it is not surprising that it is at home in our humidity. Chambourcin wines are deeply colored and fruity. Some producers use the variety for blending, for dryer wines, sparkling reds, and also for port style wines.
