Grape Varieties Explained

There is one simple fact that all wine experts agree upon: grape variety (or blend of varieties), is, by far, the most influential factor determining the flavour and character of a wine.
Wine Bottle White and Purple Grapes and a Glass of Wine
It is at the vinous root of the matter. Oz Clarke, the UK’s popular “no-nonsense” wine writer, once enthused, “It doesn’t take much to make a wine. In fact, a grape is quite capable of doing it by itself”. 

Find out all the facts about the red and white grape varieties used in the modern wine industry, simply by clicking on the various Grape Names. For each type of grape, we will supply geographical information, viticulture, flavour and character, wine styles, varietal wine and blends, body, and vinification. Start exploring and understanding grape varieties. It’s the shortest route to appreciating that delicious glass of wine in your hand!
