Juan García is a minor Spanish red grape variety. It is found mainly in the provinces of Zamora and Salamanca and in the autonomous region of Galicia. It is an authorized variety in the Denominación de Origen of Arribes[1] and the Ribeira Sacra[2].

Juan García is likely a pre-phylloxera native of north-western Spain. It has medium sized, elliptical berries with dark blue-black skins that grow in compact bunches on short pedicels. Bud break is early, vigor is medium-high, and it is highly productive. The variety shows good resistance to powdery mildew.[1]


Juan García is also known as Gorda, Mouratón, Negreda, Negreda preta, Negrera, Nepada, and Tinta negreda.[3]
