Parentage of the grape: native of Liguria (though originally thought to come from Spain)
History of the grape: Little concrete history is known about Vermentino except that it has recently been identified as the same grape as Pigato from Liguria, which would put rumors of its Spanish migration to that place to rest. It was likely consumed as far back as the 13th century. Whatever the story, no doubt the grape likes the Mediterranean climate, and thrives in places like Corsica (where it is the signature varietal, called “Malvasoie de Corse”), Sardinia, coastal Tuscany, Southern France (where it is called “Rolle”) and Spain.
