What is a Tenturier Grape?

Curious about what Tenturier grapes really are? These unique red wine grapes have dark skins and flesh, standing out from the regular red wine grapes with clear flesh. Often designated as dark grape varieties or color-enhancing grapes, Tenturier grapes like Alicante Bouschet, Rubired, and Royalty have a red pulp that sets them apart from the usual light or grey pulp of most red grape varieties. 

While these grapes may be unfamiliar to some, they provide a unique enhancement to wines with their high anthocyanin content, allowing for rich color and flavor profiles.
