The Pinot Noir grapevine is the signature grape variety of the famous Burgandy wine region in Northern France. This variety was chosen because of its inbred genotype, which made it easier to reproduce. Some say it is a bit more finicky to grow, but we all know if it were easy, it would not be worth it. Others say its special genotype gives it additional tannins and terpenes which directly correlate with the aromatic features of this fine wine and makes it well worth the effort to grow Pinot Noir grapes.
Grows in zones: 6 - 10.
