It was long believed to be the great grape of France's Rh6ne Valley-the Syrah-and was then thought for a time to have been the Icsscr-known Durif. But it now appears tkat California's Petite Sirah is of unknown parentage; it is included here under Rhbne cultivars mainly for convenience and because it has been @aditionally thought of as a Rh6ne cultivar. Petite Sirah produces small black berries in medium-sized clusters; it is believed to be quite resistant to downy mildew. Yields range from around five tons per acre in the cooler climates to up to eight tons per acre in the warmer climates of the Great Central Valley.
Mthough it is best known for it5 red wines, the Rhbne Valley produces white wines as well, and at least one white Rh6ne cultivar (Vi~ognier)has materialized in a few American vineyards recently. Because Petite Sirah was grown in America (almost exclusively in California) about a century before the current popular aend toward Rh6ne cultivars began, we begin with it, even though most winegrowers omit it from their Rh6ne blends and it may have no "true" linkage to the Rh6ne Valley whatsoever. Like Zinfandel, Petite Sirah is a grape that has a somewhat tangled and nearly indecipherable past in California.
In the warmer climates, this grape5 tendency toward high natural acidity helps it produce pleasant and drinkable table wines, despite the often intense summer heat of its major &h~erican home, California2 Crreat Central Valley. Chenin Blanc can also be found in Washington, Idaho, Arizona, New Mexico, Texas, Georgia, and Virginia. hthony Dias Blue (1083: 18) wrote: "Finally, there is Chenin Blanc-quiet, unobtrusive, good-natured Chenin Blanc, the workhorse of the family.
