Groslot, Grolleau grapes not in database

Posted by vin0vin0, Jul 13, 2013.

I was enjoying a nice French Rose and saw on the label that it is 70% Groslot, 30% Gamay. Having never heard of the Groslot grape I went to the Snooth Grape database to check it out but it isn't there.  I know how to add new wines to the site but is there a path to adding missing grapes?

From an internet search:

Groslot, Red wine grape grown in the Anjou district of the Loire Valley,where 
Groslot is the principal variety used in the production of Rosé d'Anjou. Also known as Grolleau.

I'll look into adding them. I love the Grolleau from Cousin Leduc.


Thanks for pointing this out.

Anything to help!

Also, while I was creating a new list from my recent Oregon trip, the Sarver Winery isn't showing up in the winery database - Very nice tasting room with great views.

One more grape to add to the Snooth database:

Savatiano - Savatiano is a white Greek wine grape used primarily in the wine Retsina. It is one of Greece's most widely planted grape varieties and is known for its resistance to drought condition. Wikipedia

I purchased an interesting looking bottle recently but haven't opened it yet - Greek Wine Cellars (D. Kourtakis) Retsina Kourtaki. I'll post my tasting notes soon.

Neat! I love hearing about new-to-me grape varieties!

I just tried a Spanish wine made from  indigenous Albillo grapes - the wine was actually already in the Snooth database but I did not see an entry for the grape variety.

Well tonight I'm having another well-off-the-beaten-path varietal - a Nascetta from Langhe, Italy. It's a white wine, but I don't know much about the grape. Maybe it's worth adding to the database too.

OK, one more to add to the snooth grape database,


The predominant grape variety in Macedonia is a native red called Xinomavro, (meaning "acid-black"). The wines made from Xinomavro are known for their superb aging potential and their rich tannic character. Their complex aromas combine such red fruits as gooseberry with hints of olives, spices and dried tomatoes.

Was fortunate enough to win a magnum of this fantastic Greek red at the Charleston Wine and Food Festival in March.

Is there an easier way to update the grape database?

It is not easy way to update the grape database.

Either I missed Xinomavro or it got added recently, however the spelling in the Snooth database is Xynomavro.

If you get a chance you can also add:

Bukettraube (/bu-ket-trau-be/) is a variety of white grape of German origin. Sebastian Englerth is supposed to have created it in Randersacker in the 19th century, although an Alsatian origin has also been claimed. Bukettraube is a cross of Silvaner and Schiava Grossa.
