Grape varieties

Do you have any idea how many grape varieties there are in the world? Certainly 10,000 and possibly a few more. How many of them can you name without thinking?

Most people don't manage more than ten. This is completely normal, because while the world of wine has become ever larger, the opposite has happened with the diversity of grape varieties.

The ten most commonly cultivated grape varieties alone, including Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Chardonnay, Tempranillo, Grenache, Syrah, Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot Noir, now account for more than a quarter of the world's total vineyard area at around two million hectares - and the trend is rising. Naturally, these grape varieties also play a decisive role in our region. But we love diversity and would like to gradually introduce you to the whole wealth of varieties.

Cabernet Sauvignon

Cabernet Sauvignon is one of the best known and most widely grown red grape varieties in the world. Originally from Bordeaux, France, it has found success in many wine-growing regions, such as California, Chile and Australia.


Grenache is a red grape variety grown mainly in southern France and Spain (where it is known as Garnacha). The wines are typically medium to full-bodied, with low tannins and high acidity.

Grüner Veltliner

Grüner Veltliner is a white grape variety grown mainly in Austria and is the country's best-known grape. The wines are light to medium-bodied, with moderate acidity and a characteristic pepper aroma that is often compared to white peppercorns or radishes.

Pinot Gris

Pinot Gris, also known as Pinot Gris or Pinot Grigio, is a white grape variety grown in many wine regions such as France, Italy and Germany.
