Growing areas It is still uncommon in Italy, although it is present in Friuli-Venezia Giulia, Tuscany, Puglia, Calabria and Sardinia. It is cultivated mainly in France, in Bordeaux, where it enters the production of the famous Sauternes wines. It is also popular in Australia where it is purified in Hunter Valley, and in South America, especially Chile and Argentina. We find it also in North America, especially in the West Coast states, as well as in New Zealand, Israel, Eastern Europe and South Africa, where in the nineteenth century it was even the most widespread variety in the country.
History In Italy it came directly from Bordeaux, probably following the Napoleonic troops, and spread to leopard spots in some areas both in the north and in the center-south of the country.
