History of Trebbiano grapes

Trebbiano is one of the most widely planted varieties of grape in the world. It gives good yields and can be fresh and fruity.

Trebbiano really reflects the terroir and the skills of its winemaker. At Divinalux we create a magical Trebbiano Wine, which is really different from any other Trebbiano you have ever tried. It's aromatic, soft, elegant, light, fresh and really romantic Wine. Try Divinalux vertical collection of Trebbiano Wines, to experience the most amazing Trebbiano.

Its high acidity alows it to age very elegantly and makes it important in Cognac and Armagnac productions. Trebbiano is also known as Ugni blanc and has many other names reflecting a family of local subtypes, particularly in Italy and France.

Trebbiano may have originated in the Eastern Mediterranean, and was known in Italy in Roman times. A subtype was recognized in Bologna in the thirteenth century and as Ugni blanc made its way to France, possibly during the Papal retreat to Avignon in the fourteenth century.

An Italian study published in 2008 using DNA typing showed a close genetic relationship between Garganega on the one hand and Trebbiano and several other grape varieties on the other hand. It is therefore possible that Garganega is one of the parents of Trebbiano, however, since the parents of Garganega have not been identified, the exact nature of the relationship could not be conclusively established.

Trebbiano is a very sensitive grape variety. Its aromas are very fragile, we therefore harvest the grapes at night, with low temperatures, bring it to the winery by 7am, press it with dry ice and transfer it to very cold stainless steel tanks. The entire process of Trebbiano Wine creation, takes place in temperature controlled environment to preserve the fragile aromas and flavours of Divinalux Trebbiano.
