The strength of a great wine lies within its grapes.
Varietal describes a wine made primarily from a single-named grape variety and which typically is displayed on the wine label. Vitis Vinifera, the common grape vine, is a species of Vitis, native to the Mediterranean region, central Europe and southwestern Asia. The Greeks began cultivation in 3500-3000 BC. "For over 3,000 years man has endeavored to extract greatness from the grape. We're simply carrying on the tradition."
