Picapoll

Pronounciation: Pick-a-pole
Other known names: Picpoul, Folle Blanche, Piquepoul, Gros Meslier, Picpoul, Folle Blanche, Avello and Picpoule Blanc.

Historically dating back to the 17th century, Picapoll is a grape varietal native to the Languedoc area of France that has currently found its way to the northeast portion of Spain in Catalonia. Found as a red, white and gray varietal, the white varietal is currently the most often planted. Picapoll is translated as “lip-stinger’ in French as a result of the high acidity of its must and was the basis of Picardan and Clairette, popular wines that were exported from Languedoc to Northern Europe. Following the invasion of phylloxera, a fungal disease that hit the majority of Northern Europe, plantings of the Picapoll varietal dwindled until the end of the 19th century when hardier, more disease resistant varietals were planted.
