Interesting Varieties

Right here, we start learning about all these other grapes.
Now they won't all be new to you, grapes like Zinfandel are becoming house-hold names, and varieties like Cabernet Franc, Pinotage and Carménère have been around for ages, and just never reached 'classic' status.
If you like interesting history and disappearing acts, you will love these grapes.

-If you have a cool variety you would added to this section or know of an interesting tale about a grape, feel free to contact me via the contact section of this site, or Twitter -
