  • About

Pedro Giménez, declining but still quite important white grape variety in argentina, where, along with the coarse and declining criolla grande and cereza, it is one of the vines underpinning the country’s substantial production of everyday wine for domestic consumption. Most of its approximately 12,000 ha/30,000 acres in 2013 were in Mendoza but is also found in Chile’s pisco region. It is unrelated to pedro ximénez.
