Arinarnoa is demonstrated as a cross between Merlot and Petit Verdot developed by Pierre Marcel Durquety done in 1956 at the Institute National de la Recherche Agronomique in southwest France.
Recently, the DNA parentage analysis at INTRA demonstrated that Arinarnoa is a cross between Tannat and Cabernet Sauvignon, which shows that Arinarnoa is a grandchild of Cabernet Franc and Sauvignon Blanc.
The name Arinarnoa derived from the Basque dialect words arin meaning “light” and arno meaning “wine”.
I have been online since it all began, with blogging and creating websites. Drinking wine, and writing about them, are one of my passions. Remember to drink responsibly 🙂
