Grape Varieties

Noble grape varieties

They used to be six, now they are 18. These grapes aren’t called noble because they belong to an aristocratic breed or were grown by kings. They simply are the 18 most widespread grapes grown around the world – the international varieties. These grapes do have main growing regions, where they are notable for the expression of the local "terroir", but can be grown in other areas with success. Below you’ll find a description of each along with common wine grapes that have similar profiles.
