Trebbiano – The White Wine Grape
The Italian-grown Trebbiano grape can produce light, fruity white wines with plenty of acidity and a refreshing taste. The grape grows quickly and easily, producing high yields. It can also be blended with other red and white grapes, and is also a core ingredient of brandy and balsamic vinegar.
The Trebbiano grape accounts for about a third of all white wine production in Italy. The grape has been grown in the country since Roman times (its name comes from trebula, the Latin word for farm) and has since been introduced into Argentina, Australia, Bulgaria, France, Portugal, and the United States.
At C & M Watermelon Imports Ltd, we import our Trebbiano wine grapes from the Abruzzo and Puglia districts of Italy. Abruzzo, which is in the heart of Italy (to the east of Rome) is one of the greenest regions of the country; it contains three national parks, protected marine areas – and plenty of vineyards (it’s Italy’s principal source of the Trebbiano grape). Puglia is in the south-eastern corner of the country and covers the heel of Italy’s boot.
White Wine Grapes
The acidity of Trebbiano white wine means it pairs well with creamy and fatty foods. These include white meats such as chicken, seafood and cheesy pasta dishes, pesto and – after the main course – hard or aged Italian cheeses. Avoid drinking it with spicy food as the wine’s acidity may prove too much for the palate, creating a burning effect in the mouth.
