Below are grape varieties that conform to AOP Vinsobres classification. The Vinsobres AOP guidelines only refer to Red still wines. Varieties identified in black are red (also called “black”) grapes and those in green are white grapes. Other colors (e.g. rose and grey) are identified in the text.
The proportion by grape variety (specified below) refers to the percentage of the total area of the vineyard that must to be planted with a specific variety (referred to as encépagement). Some AOP/AOC regulations will also specify a proportion of the blend (referred to as assemblage) for a given color of wine in order to be classified as an AOP/AOC wine.
