The most important are Agreste Noir, Auvernat Teint, Avernas Teint, Bajonner, Barbantal, Bayonner, Bettice de l'Isere, Blood Grape, Bourguignon Noir, Bretonneria, Dyer's Grape, Gros Noir, Moreau, Negrin, Neraut, Nerone, Noir d'Orléans, Plant d'Espagne, Pontac, Pontack, Pontiac, Romé, Romé Noir, Ruby Grape, Tachard, Teintevin, Teinturier, Teinturier à Bois Rouge, Teinturier Mâle, Ink Grape, Ink Wine, Uva Tinta and Vin Tint.

The Wine lexicon helps me to stay up to date and refresh my knowledge. Thank you for this Lexicon that will never end in terms of topicality! That's what makes it so exciting to visit more often.Thorsten Rahn
