Hondarribi Beltza

The red grape variety originates from Spain. The name derives from the town of Hondarribia in the north-east of the Spanish Basque Country (País Vasco), beltza = black. Synonyms are Chacolí, Courbu Noir Faux, Cruchen Nègre, Hondarrabi Beltza, Kurixketu Beltza, Negra, Ondarrabi Beltza, Ondarribi Beltza, Txakoli, Txakoli Noir, Verde Matza and Xerratu Beltza. It should not be confused with the Cabernet Franc or Courbu Noir varieties, despite seemingly suggestive synonyms or morphological similarities. The Chacolí (Txakoli) variety, sometimes referred to as distinct, is identical. According to DNA analyses carried out in 2009, there is a parent-offspring relationship between Hondarribi Beltza and Cabernet Franc.

There is a vast number of sources on the web where one can acquire knowledge about wine. But none has the scope, timeliness and accuracy of the information in the encyclopaedia at wein.plus. I use it regularly and rely on it.
