Trebbiano wine grape

Question: Like the 2014 Hester Creek Trebbiano from old vines of Block 16 in the Okanagan British Columbia. Are there other products using this grape?

Answer: Good choice by you from their 1968 vine planting turned into a unique wine showing lovely ripe pear fruit. Try also their excellent 2016 for $24. Trebbiano is a popular variety in Italy with many producers there making a dry lighter bodied style with good acidity to match well with many foods. Try one. This variety goes by other names including Ugni Blanc which is grown on chalky soil with ocean breezes in the Charente area of France providing ideal acidity for distilling into Cognac (with the Folle Blanche & Colombard varieties).
