Regent

Regent is a robust red grape variety known for its deep color and pronounced flavors. Developed in Germany in the late 20th century, this grape is a cross between Diana (itself a cross between Silvaner and Müller-Thurgau) and Chambourcin. It thrives in cooler climates, offering a resilient option for vineyards facing challenging weather conditions. Regent wines are characterized by a rich, full-bodied profile, with notes of dark berries, cherries, and sometimes a hint of spice. Its natural resistance to common vine diseases allows for more sustainable vineyard practices, making Regent a popular choice among organic and biodynamic wine producers.
