Pinot Noir

 
Synonyms:  
 

Blauburgunder (AT), Clevner (CH), Rúlandské modré (SK, CZ), Blauer Spätburgunder (DE), Pinot Noir (FR), Kisburgundi Kék (HU), Pinot nero (IT), Modri Pinot (SL)

 
Origin:  
 

The Pinot varieties derive from a crossing of Pinot Meunier x Traminer, and there is a genetic explanation for the differing grape skin colours in Pinot Noir, Pinot Gris and Pinot Blanc. 

 
Spreading:  
 
Classic Pinot Noir originates from Burgundy, yet there are some fine examples coming out of Germany, Oregon in the United States as well as New Zealand. Relatively speaking, the cultivation of Austrian Pinot Noir is still in its infancy, yet there is an upsurge of some great examples being produced in many wine-growing regions, with very promising results.
