Unusual and Interesting Grape Varieties

A selection of unusual and interesting grape varieties

Grape varieties from around the world. Strange grapes such as Falanghina, Assyrtiko and Aglianico can be found in this selection. 

These are often grapes that are lesser known but have an amazing ability to astound once tasted. It is thought that there are over 6000 known grape varietals in the world but there are only really twenty that are the big hitters when it comes to wine making. This is a real pity as many of these lesser known and grown varieties can produce majestic wine and are true to their terroir and climate. 

This is seen especially in Italy where local grapes will grow well in one village or region but will be a disaster in another village. The local people hold their grape variety close to their hearts and will defend it vigorously and with typical passion, even though it may well be the same grape in every respect except name!
