The Pinot Noir grape was initially associated with the Burgundy region of France.
However, it now grows in many areas around the world, but chiefly in colder climates. Pinot Noir is a red wine grape of the type Vitis Vinifera.
The Pinot Noir grape is also used in the production of sparkling wines and is an ingredient in the Champagne regions.
The vines can be difficult to cultivate due to its habit of producing tight clusters of grapes which makes it prone to disease.
Pinot Noir grapes produce wines which are among the most popular in the world, and the wine ages well.
