L'école des vins
Because it ripens late, the Vermentino grape needs a warm climate and can be grown only in regions which get plenty of sunshine.
Vermentino contributes lightness and fresh acidity. In terms of flavour, it is complex grape, with hints of grapefruit, fresh-picked apple, green almonds, mild spices, hawthorn, ripe pear and fresh pineapple.
Widely used in making wines from the Côtes du Luberon, in which it accounts for 8% of the area devoted to growing white grapes. It is also used in Costières de Nîmes and Ventoux.
