Grapes is a collaborative piece of work that has been put together by six specialists from different areas within the world of the vineyard and wine. Representing the sum of their knowledge, this manual deals with one of our most cherished and important Mediterranean crops. While there are other publications that deal with vines, wines and winemaking from a technical point of view, it is not often - as is the case with this book - that elements of history and culture are also included.

Despite the fact that the twelve varieties included in this manual also appear in other parts of the winemaking world, they remain our very own autochthonous, traditional Catalan varieties.

We hope that this book is useful for vine growers, producers, winemakers and, above all, all of those wine lovers who want to discover something new about the varieties and wines that make up such an important part of our country.
