Today’s question is from William from the Upper East Side (New York) who asks “How many grapes variety are there in the world that are use for wine making?”.
Video sum up: How many grapes varieties are there in the world?
Hundreds of grapes are used throughout the world for winemaking
But in most part, only a couple of grape varieties are used , mainly for economic reasons (offer and demand…).
Jeremy tried to list for you these main grapes:
- On the red side: Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Pinot Noir, Cabernet Franc, Sangiovese, Nebiolo, Malbec…
- On the white side: Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Riesling, Colombard, Gewurtzraminer…
But even if the same grapes are used in most part of the world they are still used differently.
