Mostly grown in Spain and South Africa, Palomino is low in both acidity and sugar, which makes it the primary grape in the production of Sherry. Most table wines from the grape are low-quality due to the grape's unusual characteristics.
In Spain, the grape has three sub-varieties: Palomino Basto, Palomino de Jerez, and the most well-known, Palomino Fino, which is used for the production of Sherry. The grape has a few plantings in France and the US, but its most important use outside of Spain is in the fortified wines of South Africa, where it is called Fransdruif or White French.
