Tibouren is a dark-skinned red wine grape variety primary originated from Mesopotamia and it was carried to Italy by the Greeks, named after the Tiber river and from there it has arrived in France where it has found a home in Provence. Previously it has been known by the name Antibois and in Germany as Geysserin. It produces highly regarded full-bodied rosé with herbal and earthy notes. It can be a principal grape variety up to 80 per cent in the making of red and rosé wines in Côtes de Provence. Normally it is blended with Grenache and Cinsault for the production of rosé in Provence, where some of the planted vines are older than 100 years.
