The varieties used for the production of white wines are generally referred to as "white varieties", although the berries are often not white, but of a light green, green, yellow, golden, brownish, light red or even red colour. In contrast, red wines and rosé wines require blue to black berry red varieties. In the present wine lexicon, about 1,700 grape varieties are described. For the individual countries there are tables with the varieties and quantities. See also under new varieties, grape variety and a list of relevant keywords under grapevine.
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
