Muscat Rouge à Petits Grains is a wine grape for white wine that is a member of the Muscat family of Vitis vinifera. Its name comes from its characteristic small berry size and tight clusters, and from its skin colour. It's a variation of the more common Muscat Blanc à Petits Grains with a reddish colour, which in some of its synonyms are described as brown, gray or violet. Muscat Rose à Petits Grains is a further variation with lighter, pinkish skin colour.
