Alicante Bouschet Grape


Alicante Bouschet is the original name of the popular variety of Garnacha Tintorera red grapes. There is a current of people who still believe that they are different strains. But scientifically there is no doubt that it is the same variety with different names.

The origin of Alicante Bouschet and Garnacha Tintorera is purely European. In 1855, the Viticulturist Henri Bouschet made a cross of strains between Petit Bouschet and Garnacha Tinta, thus giving rise to Alicante Bouschet. Previously, his father Louis Bouschet had created the Petit Bouschet through Teinturier varieties. The goal was to create a high quality, very red variety to mix with other lighter red grapes.

The cultivation of this variety began to occur in parts of France, Italy, Spain, Portugal and finally in the United States and Chile. In Spain, the areas where it is most cultivated are Castilla La Mancha, Aragón, Alicante, Ribeira Sacra, Bierzo and Rioja. Although there is a popular belief that it originates from Spain, the existing documentation and several scientific studies deny it outright.
