List of grape varieties

Glera is a grape variety that grows mainly in northeast Italy in the Friuli-Venezia Giulia region , especially in Trieste. It is mainly used to press a sparkling wine ( Italian : " Frizzante ") as well as sparkling wines (Italian: Spumante ) and still wines , for example Serprina, Serprino , Grappolo, Spargolo, Ghera or Sciprina.

“Glera” is the new name for the “Prosecco” variety. According to the decree of the Italian Minister of Agriculture of July 17, 2009, since January 1, 2010, Prosecco is no longer the name of a grape variety, but that of a designation of origin . This regulation was confirmed by the EC Regulation No. 1166/2009 of November 30, 2009
