Grolleau is a red grape primarily grown in the Loire Valley, central France. Grolleau derives from the French word, “grolle”, meaning “crow”, to reflect the deep black berries the vines produce. It is mainly used to blend some of the region’s rosé wines, as well as produce a light-bodied, vibrant red.
