Top 10 Most Planted Wine Grapes

Outside of the varietal of the grape, wine can be morphed into unique flavor profiles by different climates, aging processes, etc. At its core, each type of wine comes from a specific grape. Check out how the world pans out in terms of the most planted wine grapes.

  1. Cabernet Sauvignon
  2. Merlot
  3. Airen
  4. Tempranillo
  5. Chardonnay
  6. Syrah
  7. Grenache
  8. Sauvignon Blanc
  9. Trebbiano
  10. Pinot Noir

The types of grapes used in wine that are most popular throughout the world is reminiscent of the varietal preferences of the worldwide wine lovers. As communication increases and cultures start influencing the flavors in wine (ex: China’s increasing love of wine), maybe the most planted wine grapes will be completely different in 5 years time.

Why Cabernet Sauvignon?

Bordeaux did a fantastic job marketing their grapes. Yes, marketing is the answer. Sauvignon Blanc and Merlot also originate from the region, adding to the fact that marketing has influenced wine varietal growth around the world. Burgundy also benefitted from marketing as Chardonnay and Pinot Noir originate from this region. As you can see, all of the varietals originating from Bordeaux and Burgundy have made their way on the list of the world’s most planted grapes. What would the wine world be like if another country’s varietals took over the world? Grab a glass of wine and ponder for a while.
