Amur was planted in the early 1980's on our Keuka Estate vineyards. In total was have 0.97 acres planted. Vineyards on our Keuka vineyard are shallow, shale-based soils which adds minerality, acidity, and elegance.
Known as the Amur grape, this grape is part of the vitis Amurensis family, a winterhardy grape native to southern Siberia and northern China. It's name comes from the Amur Valley in Russia and China. The vine is early ripening, resistant to frost, and thrives in cold climates.
