        TheInfoList



This list of grape varieties includes cultivated grapes, whether used for wine, or eating as a table grape, fresh or dried (raisin, currant, sultana). The term ''grape variety'' refers to cultivars rather than actual botanical varieties according to the International Code of Nomenclature for Cultivated Plants, because they are propagated by cuttings and may have unstable reproductive properties. However, the term ''variety'' has become so entrenched in viticulture that any change of usage to the term ''cultivar'' is unlikely.


Single species grapes


While some of the grapes in this list are hybrids, they are hybridized within a single species. For those grapes hybridized across species, known as interspecific hybrids, see the section on multispecies hybrid grapes below.

Multispecies hybrid grapes





Vinifera hybrids (wine)


Hybrid grape varieties (see Hybrid grapes) or "hybrids" is, in fact, the popular term for a subset of what are properly known as ''hybrids'', specifically crossings between one species of the genus vitis and another. The scientific definition of a hybrid grape is any crossing (intra- or inter-specific) of two grape varieties. In keeping with the popular definition, however, the ones listed below are inter-specific hybrids where one parent is a European grape. Most of these are complex mixtures of three or more species and all parents are not always clearly known. * Alexander * Agawam * Aurore * Baco 22A (Baco blanc) * Baco noir (Baco 1) * Blanc du Bois * Brianna * Cabernet blanc * Cabernet Cortis * Cayuga White * Chambourcin * Chancellor * Chardonel * Chelois * Corot noir * Couderc noir * De Chaunac * Edelweiss * Elvira * Esprit * Flora (grape) * Flot rouge * Frontenac * Goethe * Herbert * Kay Gray * L'Acadie blanc * L'Ambertille * La Crescent * La Crosse * Léon Millot * Louise Swenson * Luci Kuhlmann * Marechal Foch * Marechal Joffre * Marquette * Massasoit * Melody * Merzling * Noiret * Onaka * Orion * Phoenix * Plantet * Prairie Star * Ravat blanc / Ravat 6 * Ravat noir / Ravat 262 * Rayon d'Or * Regent * Rembrandt * Requa * Rondo * Rosette * Rougeon * Royalty * Rubired * St. Croix * St. Pepin * Severny * Solaris * Sovereign Opal * Traminette * Triomphe d'Alsace * Valvin muscat * Vidal blanc * Vignoles / Ravat 51 * Villard blanc * Villard noir * Zarya Severa
