One of the oldest grapes used for wine, Pinot Noir can be traced back to the first century, when the Romans conquered Gaul and discovered its beauty. It was the wine of choice for Sacraments, and the public quickly came to love it as well. Being a finicky grape, it is subject to numerous issues in the vineyard. With its thin skin, it is susceptible to disease, rot, and fungus, not to mention the problems with wind, rain, or even heat. Pinot does best in cool, dry climates with good drainage.
Because of its delicate nature, it happens to be great for food parings. Originating in France (which also has the most Pinot Noir planted, at 29,542 hectares) this little grape has made its way all over the world and back. We can find Pinot in California, Oregon, New Zealand, Italy, Switzerland, Argentina, Chile, Germany, and many others.
