Vermentino originates in the vast geographic region between Corsica, Sardinia, Tuscany, Piedmont (where it is known as Favorita) and Liguria (known as Pigato). It takes its name from the Italian fermento, in reference to the sparkling character of its young wines. In Switzerland, this variety, sensitive to spring frosts and mildew, produces fruity, aromatic wines, but it is hardly grown at all.
