In , a study conducted by Carole Meredith ‘s research group in the Department of Viticulture and Enology at University of California, Davis used DNA typing and extensive grape reference material from the viticultural research station in Montpellier , France to conclude that Syrah was the offspring of the grape varieties Dureza father and Mondeuse blanche mother. Mondeuse blanche is a white grape variety cultivated in the Savoy region, and is still found in small amounts in that region’s vineyards today. Both varieties are somewhat obscure today, and have never achieved anything near Syrah’s fame or popularity, and there is no record of them ever having been cultivated at long distances from their present homes. Instead, they seem to have been based primarily or solely on the name or synonyms of the variety. Varying orthography for grape names render dubious any name-based evidence of origins. Nevertheless, origins such as Syracuse or the famous Iranian city of Shiraz have been proposed while the genomic studies had yet to be done.

Hey, Marnie, the guy on the bar stool next to me said Shiraz and Syrah are the same thing. He can’t be right, can he? You’re out 10 bucks, Buzz. The French Syrah grape goes by another name in most of the Southern Hemisphere: It’s called Shiraz in Australia and South Africa. Wine isn’t confusing enough, huh? They have to mix up the names, too?
