Emerging Viticulture

vietnam wine tours 1

Viticulture in Vietnam is growing

Originally, the French's attempt to develop the viticulture in Vietnam during the colonization was not successful because Vietnam’s grapes were too sour, along with the distinct tropical climate made it impossible to establish winemaking. Yet over the years, vintners have learned their way to grow a variety of grapes such as Cardinal, Chambourcin, end especially the infamous Black Queen.

Popular wine in Vietnam includes:

  • Vang DaLat: Easily one of the most well-known local wine, Vang DaLat made from red grapes and fermented mulberry juice. The taste is sharp and somewhat acidic which suits those who like a strong flavor.

Vang DaLat is Vietnamese traditional wine

  • Cardinal: The red wine lover’s favorite made from a type of table grapes in Western countries, but Vietnamese have found a way to create a rich and sweet, but not empowering, taste.
  • Chambourcin: Chambourcin grapes are used to make red wines and rosé. As for red wine, it offers a strong but fruity flavor. When aged well, Chambourcin wine can have such a pleasantly earthy fragrance.
  • Chardonnay: The renowned white wine supposedly belongs to the French or American culture only, but the Vietnamese version is just as good with a silky, buttery texture.
  • Cabernet Sauvignon: Boasting of the fruity of berries and cherry flavor with a hint of pepper, licorice, vanilla, the heavenly liquor is a must-try on your Vietnam wine tours.
