Adalmiina is a white grape variety recognized as minor but complex, a cold-hardy American hybrid; grown particularly in Quebec.
This is a grape variety traditionally used in blends to make restitution for its low acidity level.
Producers of the wines are Le Chat Botte, Coteau St – Paul, Domaine Mont Vezeau and Vignoble Le Nordet.
It was developed in the mid-80 by Elmer Swenson and never launched with a name. Meeri Saario from Finland had the opportunity to get it in the mid-90 and named it Adalmiina.
Adalmiina is a complicated Vitis Labrusca, Vitis Vinifera, Vitis Lincecumii and Vitis Rupestris hybrid.
In 1997, Adalmiina was inseminated by Meeri Saario with other various Swenson varieties.
Characteristics of Adalmiina Wines
Adalmiina is known to produce varietal and French Muscadet style of wines. Varietal wines do not have foxy flavor, not like Muscadet wines; however, they both have minor lack of acidity. Adalmiina wines carry mineral and tropical fruit notes.

Michael is an online enthusiast, with a lot of knowledge about online marketing. Traveling around the world to hunt for the perfect wine. Latest on Sicily, where Etna has a huge impact on the taste, which is strong with a bitter aftertaste for the youngest wines, but older wines are fantastic. Drinking wine, and writing about them, are one the passions. Remember to drink responsibly 🙂
