      Some of these grapes, like Petit Arvine, Diolinoir and Amigne are limited to as little as 40 acres for the entire planet to share. Wilson’s infectious enthusiasm will send you out in search of a bottle of sparkling Gringet (54 acres). Every book has weaknesses, but with “Godforsaken Grapes,” my complaints are minor. The book takes its name from a tirade by Robert Parker where he refers to a lot of lesser known varieties as “godforsaken grapes.” However, as Wilson points out, there are currently 1, known varieties (and likely way more), but 80% of the world’s wine is made from only 20 grapes.
