ROOTS

From the Greeks to the Romans

The Greeks developed viticulture, winemaking and winegrowing in Europe. In Italy, the Etruscans learned this Greek and transmitted it to the Romans.

The grape family is divided into white, red and black grape and, according  to its use on the table, into wine or sundried grape.

Furthermore, table grape  is divided into seeded and seedless varieties.
