Grape Varieties


Glossary terms

Fernão Pires (white)

Quality Portuguese variety grown throughout Portugal but especially in Ribatejo and Bairrada where it is known as Maria Gomes.

 

Freisa (red)

Another light Piedmontese variety with a slight raspberryish tang produced as a still or sparkling red.

 

Furmint (white)

Susceptible to raisining and noble rot (known as aszú in Hungary's Tokaji), this full-bodied, high acid quality grape is the major partner in the blend with Hárslevelú which makes up Tokaji, the rich, long-lived wines of the Tokaj region in Hungary, now undergoing a revival thanks to western investments.

It can produce a good, fiery dry white too. It's also grown in Slovakia, Slovenia, Croatia and Romania.
