Greece is known for having different types of varieties. Aidini is a trivial white variety mainly found in this country.

Aidini grapes

Some says that this grape variety originally came from Adana, the southeastern area of Turkey, but no confirmed proof yet on this belief.

Aidani Mavro is one of the grape varieties that is referred to as its color mutation and not actually a distinct type.

Theoretically, Aidini grapes are also used as ingredients in the historical blended wines Apernthitis, Malvasia and Naxos.
