Grape Talk: Red “C” Grapes

Several lesser-known red grapes usually recognized as part of a blend, that all start with C. Thanks to a growing interest in natural wine, they’re getting more famous by the day. Sometimes you can even find a bottle that’s a 100% super solo show. That said, some are better off as blending grapes only, like Colorino for example.
