Bombino Bianco: Already grown for many years in Apulia, this vine seems to be native of Spain, although there are no sources definitely attesting this origin.

As to its name, the literature describes the shape of the bunch, which, according to a quite fantastic vision, resembles that of a child with stretched arms. This is the reason for the name Bammino, a dialect term of the Italian Bambino, later turned into Bombino.

Given the Spanish origin, the name is more probably derived from Bonvino, as the letter “v” is pronounced in Spanish like the letter “b” in Italian. Therefore, the Spanish word “Bonvino” is pronounced like the Italian “Bombino”. Thus, the name Bombino means “good wine”.

Trebbiano Toscano: Most probably it originated in the eastern Mediterranean area. In Italy it is widespread in the centre and south, as well as on the main islands. It is less present in northern Italy, mostly in warmer areas with a good sun exposure. Italian sources mention it for the first time in Siena in the 13th century.
