What is Léon Millot??

What is Léon Millot you ask?!

Well.. Léon Millot which can also be known as “Leon Millot Rouge” is a red varietal of hybrid grapes used for wine. It was created in 1911 in the Oberlin Institute in Colmar Alsace, by the French viticulturist Eugène Kuhlmann. He crossed the hybrid grape Millardet et Grasset with Goldriesling. The variety was named after the winemaker and tree nursery owner Léon Millot.

Léon Millot is cultivated in small amounts in Switzerland, Alsace, Oregon, and Canada. It can be found in our ‘Four Play’ Red Blend.
