We all enjoy a good Albariño, Chardonnay, Pinot Noir or Malbec, but within the world of wine there are thousands of varieties of grapes capable of producing spectacular wines.

An example is the red grape Trepat. This native grape from Catalonia, Spain, is used mostly to produce rosé wines. In Addition to providing a bright pink color, its high acidity makes it perfect for the production of cavas. (Ex: Villa Conchi Cava Brut Rose, Penedés)

From Sicily, Italy comes the white grape Grillo, which we should not confuse with Pinot Grigio. It is used mainly for the production of fortified Marsala wine, but we can also find many examples of dry table wines, very mineral and herbaceous. (Ej: Stemmari “Grillo”, Sicilia)

Another example is the Marselan red grape, which arises from a cross between Red Grenache and Cabernet Sauvignon. Originally from France, it has been adopted with great success in Uruguay, Brazil and China. With its bright red color, this wine offers us a fresh red option full of aromas of ripe red fruits, perfect for our tropical climate. (Ej: Bodegas Garzon “Marselan”, Uruguay)
