Pedro Giménez growing in Chile.

Pedro Giménez is a white Argentine wine grape that is rapidly declining in plantings. Despite the similar name, the Spanish wine grape Pedro Ximénez is a different variety with ampelographers not yet certain if the two grapes are in any way related. Grown predominately in the Mendoza wine region, Pedro Giménez makes simple wines similar to those made from Cereza and Criolla Grande. There are some plantings in Chile where it is a minor grape in pisco production.[1]
