Mataro is the name that was sometimes used historically in California for the Spanish red grape mourvèdre. Zibbibo is the name used in Sicily and Italy’s other southern volcanic islands for the white grape muscat of Alexandria. In South Africa, steen is the local name for chenin blanc. And in northern Spain the red grape mazuelo (which is often used in Rioja where it is blended with tempranillo and garnacha) is what the French call carignan.
