St. Laurent (sometimes written out either in French as Saint Laurent or in German as Sankt Laurent) is a highly aromatic dark-skinned wine grape variety of the same family as Pinot Noir, originating in France. In Austria, it is primarily found in the regions Niederösterreich and Burgenland. In 2008, Austrian plantations stood at 794 hectares (1,960 acres), and have expanded in the 2000s as a part of general red wine trend in Austria, after having declined somewhat during the 1990s.

A small quantity of St. Laurent is also grown in New Zealand after an import in 2002 into Alexandra, Central Otago.
