Just because the grape is red, this doesn't mean it only makes red wine. In fact, the juice from all grapes is clear, so all grapes can make white wine. But in order to ...

It was lost for many years when the Great Wine Blight, or the phylloxera virus, ravaged France's vineyards during the late 1800's. The Fren...

Others believe it relates to the colour; blush = lighter, richer pinks = rosé. Actually it can be all or none of the above!
