Petit Verdot hails from Bordeaux, France, where it is most often used in the region’s famous red blends to add color, tannins and impart concentrated fruit flavor on the palate. Petit Verdot is grown in several other countries other than France. Argentina, Australia, Chile, Italy, Portugal, and the United States have been growing it and using it as a blending varietal, as well. California and Washington state are the most popular areas making wines with significant percentages of Petit Verdot in their red blends. Lynfred Winery is extremely proud to share this unique variety on its own.
