Baco Noir

Baco Noir is a hybrid grape variety created by Francois Baco that is used for wine making, especially in the northern wine regions of North America. Baco Noir is produced from a cross of the Vitis vinifera variety Folle blanche and an unknown Vitis riparia variety. Although Baco noir is an F1-hybrid and not backcrossed (see ‘backcrossing’), it does not express the typical ‘foxy’ aromas that are common in Vitis riparia varieties and hybrids.
