Durif aka Petit Syrah - The Origin Story

In the 1860s the French botanist François Durif kept a nursery of several grape varieties at his home in the commune of Tullins where he most likely had plantings of Peloursin and Syrah. At some point the two vines cross pollinated and Durif discovered a new grape variety growing in his nursery. It was identified and named Plant du Rif (later Durif) by ampelographer Victor Pulliat in 1868.

Durif was common in the southern French regions of Languedoc, Provence and Vin de Pays though it is rarely seen today. Australia and California are now the two leading producers of this rare grape.
