The Pinot Noir grape variety comes from the province of Burgundy in France, but is also popular in several other countries. This variety of berries has a very capricious nature, requiring a lot of attention, and is sensitive to weather conditions and soil composition. The grapes do not tolerate rain and strong winds, and prefer a cold climate, mainly growing in the north. Susceptible to fungus, mold, and rot, the yield of Pinot Noir grapes is usually poor.
- There are over 50 "clones" of the Pinot Noir grape, but the most popular ones are:
- Pinot Blanc
- Red Velvet
