Wine grape varieties

Through an unpredictable family, it seems to require some hereditary association with practically every different grape assortment in the locale.

Late DNA examination has associated this type of grapefruit to the Spanish wine grapes of Albillo in Ribera del Duero, Lairén in Andalusiand an area of Ávila, however, it is yet not recognized whether the grape started in some area of Spain and ventured out to Italy.

Remember to read the Wine Tasting guide…



The phylloxera mite does not flourish in the sandy, gravelly soils at this height, which implies that Prie Blanc – dissimilar to verging on each different Vitisvinifera assortment in Europe – is un-grafted.

Vines are planted on their unique rootstocks and have a normal period of around 60 years, giving littler yields that make for concentrated, complex wines.

Another potential spot of birthplace for Priéblanc grape to grow is the Valais district where the grape appears to have a forerunner relationship to the Switzerland’s wine grape Rouge du Pays posterity Mayolet.

In Switzerland, Priéblanc’s essential equivalent is Bernarde grape which perhaps has an orientation similar to the Great St Bernard Pass interfacing the Valle d’Aosta, Italy to Valais.

It would probably be the way that the etchings of the grapevine would blowout from a single area to the next. In any case, people like José Vouillamoz, who was a Swiss grape geneticist, trusts that it is much more probable that Prié blanc grape spread to Switzerland from Aosta in a different way.

An Italian source of grape Priéblanc was for quite some time accepted until the DNA investigation in 2010 distinguished Legiruela plantings in the area of north Spain named Avila which were really Prié blanc.

Additional sketching associated this type of grape to a few Spanish type of wine grape assortments including a guardian posterity association with Ávila in Castile, Albillo from the Ribera del Duero and León and Madrid.

They developed in the southern Spanish wine area of Andalusia, demonstrating that Prié blanc has been native in Spain for quite a while so as to engender and connect with different assortments developed so broadly distinct from each other.

Furthermore, the accurate relationship between Lairén, Albillo and Priéblanc is not yet completely known as to which grape assortment is the caretaker and which assortments are the posterity related, proposing that possibly Prié blanc might be an originator of Spain.


Prie Blanc is a light-cleaned grape assortment which is found for the most part in the snow-capped extremes of northwest Italy’s Valle d’Aosta.

These high elevations, pergola-prepared wines are most eminent for flourishing in territories that are impervious to phylloxera, botanical white wines they deliver under the Blanc de Morgex et de la Salle DOC.

A couple of sweet and shimmering cases exist too. Outside of Italy, Prie Blanc is likewise planted in the correspondingly high vineyards of Valais in Switzerland.

It has a somewhat leesy and marginally pasty sort of edge to it. On the sense of taste, the wine is on the lighter side of medium with high sharpness.
