Vermentino is common in Italy, although the origin of the grape is unknown. Yellow, versatile and underrated, Vermentino is grown on the island of Sardinia for the production of table wines. The narrow northwest region of Liguria hosts the DOCs of Riviera Ligure di Ponente Vermentino and Colli di Luni Vermentino, which border on Tuscany. Tuscany has two other DOCs for Vermentino, although the grape is less prominent in the blends from this region. Piedmont also has some examples.
Vermentino is also found in France, where many AOCs now allow the grape. Regions featuring the use of this grape in their blends include the Languedoc-Roussillon and Provence. Patrimonio AOC, in Corsica, makes a well-known varietal Vermentino (see the Corsica page).
