History of the grape: Trebbiano is one of the world’s most widely planted white grape varietals, not only for wines, but brandies and vinegars, including balsamic styles. It is believed that it originated in central Italy, but quickly spread throughout Europe and the rest of the world as empires and colonies were established. But despite its widespread plantings and usage, besides some fine releases from around the Abruzzo region (that often have the name of the varietal in its DOC title) it is rarely given credit since it’s often a minor blending grape, or appearing as one its many aliases.

Characteristics of the grape: light-bodied, crisp, high acidity, minerally, lemon, rosemary

This wine would pair excellently with a variety of delicate foods because it is unassuming and approachable while still having enou... Read More

  • I just bought a bottle of '09 Trebbiano from Duchman Family Winery in Texas, and in their hands is not merely a blending varietal! Great acidity with notes of banana and pineapple..with a tinge of pear. Makes you want to be on a beach somewhere! Great food pairing white!

Originally a native of the slightly wamer climes of Italy but when used in the more northerly Cognac region of France it doesn't mature fully and so produces a more acidic wine - which is perfect for distilling and making into Cog...
