What grape is used to make Muscadet wine ?

Question submitted by Diane

The grape used in Muscadet is actually called Melon de Bourgogne.

This burgundy grape was brought in the Loire Valley during the 17th century. Vine growers noticed that Melon from Burgundy was the best grape growing in the western part of the Loire Valley to cope with the winter season and specially with frost.

Nowadays the grape is even called Muscadet in the area.

Muscadet is a delicate dry white wine. Muscadet is the perfect companion with oysters.
