Dyer's grape

German synonym for the red grape variety Teinturier du Cher, the original vine of all Teinturiers (dyer's grapes). In the German-speaking world, however, this is also the usual and general term for the internationally used French term Teinturier (see there). These are many different grape varieties that are used for the production of colouring cover red wine. See also under anthocyanins.
