Muscat

9407 visitors
The muscat family of grapes of the species Vitis vinifera is widely grown for wine, raisins and table grapes. They range in color from white to almost black, but almost always have a pronounced sweet floral aroma. Muscat grapes are grown around the world in Bulgaria, Romania, Italy, Israel, France, Portugal, Greece, Spain, Australia, California, Hungary, Canada, Turkey and other places. The breadth and number of varieties of muscat suggest that it is very old, perhaps the oldest domesticated grape variety. There are theories that most families within the Vitis vinifera grape family are descended from the Muscat family.
