Refosco (more accurately pluralized as the Refoschi) is an ancient group of closely related dark-skinned grape varieties. Their origins – which pre-date modern day political borders – include northern Italy's Friuli-Venezia Giulia, western Slovenia and the Istrian Peninsula of Croatia.

Refosco dal Peduncolo Rosso, which translates to "Refosco with the red stems", is widely regarded as the star of the group, with its greatest expressions coming from Friuli's Colli Orientali DOC. The wines here have impressive fruit intensity, laced with minerality and tart acidity.

Members of this group include: Terrano, Refosco dal Peduncolo Rosso, Refosco dal Peduncolo Verde, Refosco Nostrano, Cagnina, Teran, Refosco d'Istria, Refosk, Sangue del Carso.
