Chelois Wine Information

Chelois, or Seibel 10878, is one of the group of grapes known as hybrid grapes. These are grapes which were created by breeding American grapevines and French grapevines together to create a hearty grape with a combination of good flavor and winter-sturdiness.

Chelois was first produced by Albert Seibel who developed a huge number of grape styles in the 1950s.

Chelois is found to make a fairly tasty wine, but can be challenging to grow. Even with its relatively good flavor, Chelois is primarily used as a neutral blending wine.
