Marsanne is a white wine grape, most commonly found in the Northern Rhône region. It is often blended with Roussanne. In Savoie the grape is known as grosse roussette. Outside France it is also grown in Switzerland (where it is known as ermitage blanc or just ermitage), Spain (where it is known as Marsana), Australia, New Zealand, Canada and the United States. The grape most likely originated in the Northern Rhône region where it is widely planted today. And more precisely the village and abbey of Marsanne (Drôme). It is a principal component of the white wines from the Hermitage, Crozes-Hermitage and Saint-Joseph AOCs. It is the most widely planted white wine grape in the Hermitage AOC, where it is often blended with Roussanne.
We inspired the name “Wine Anatolia“ from today’s Turkey, Georgia, Armenia, Syria & Iraq. Historically wine production in Anatolia goes back to 3,000 BC. Our aim is to serve information about wines from all over the world specially anatolia.
