Landot Noir is a grape variety bred by Pierre Landot in France. It was introduced to Canada and the US in the 1950s. Landot Noir is a black skinned hybrid with a complex parentage.
Now days Landot Noir is primarily grown in New York and Ontario, Canada where the vineyards need a grape that can take the cold weather. It's always a tricky balancing act to find grape vines that can survive killer frosts and still create a tasty wine.
