Commonly used part of vine variety names and synonyms in Portugal. Although it is not a vine variety family, there are parent-progeny relationships for some varieties. Confusingly, some of the synonyms are used several times; one extreme example is Boal Cachudo for five grape varieties. In addition, sources often mention only "Boal", which makes it even more difficult to distinguish.
