The Grape World
 From the Reading Room
There are some 24,000 names for varieties of wine grapes. Ampelograhers believe these represent about 5,000 truly different varieties, since most varieties have numerous names, depending on where they are grown. Of those 5000 grape varieties, only 150 are planted in commercially significant amounts. And of the 150 varieties, only the following 9 are considered classic:

White Grapes: Chardonnay, Chenin Blank, Riesling, Sauvignon Blanc, Semillon

Red Grapes: Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Pinot Noir, Syrah
