Chancellor is a hybrid red grape variety developed by grape-breeder, Albert Siebel, in France around 1860. The variety has been virtually expelled from its homeland and is now only grown in the Midwest, eastern United States and in Canada. It is the result of crossing Siebel 5163 and Siebel 880 and was known as Siebel 7053 until 1970, when it was renamed Chancellor.
Chancellor is hardy vine that is highly productive and cold-resistant, but vulnerable to powdery and downy mildew. It produces fruity wine and blends well with other hybrids.
Synonyms include: Siebel 7053.
