Comments Rodítis is one of the oldest and most common white grapes in Greece grown primarily as a wine grape. The name Rodítis may be a reference to the pink skin of the berries ("rose") or to the island of Rhodes. The cultivar reportedly makes the best wine when the grapes are grown at higher altitudes with a northern exposure.
