“Red, Red Wine, Stay close to me……” Can you just hear UB 40 crooning that old favorite tune with its reggae beat? How many other songs have been written about the fermentation of this revered fruit? 

The history of grapes is as old as the history of mankind. There is evidence that as far back as Ancient Egypt, man has been transforming grapes into wine, one of the world’s finest symbols of romance.

 

But even before it is transformed into that delicate, fermented beverage, grapes are linked symbolically with love, fertility and virility. The ancient Romans, acknowledged as the first civilization to cultivate grape vines, made both grapes and wine emblems of Bacchus, god of ecstasy (not to mention fertility). Even pre-dating the Romans, in ancient Greece it was a tradition to give clusters to newlyweds in the belief that the grape’s seeds would bless the couple with many children.

Wine Grape. A very early, hardy, French, red wine grape, which may be relied upon in all seasons. This black wine grape is most noted for being one of the three main varieties used in the production of Champagne. Attractive woolly white fur on the leaf makes it more frost hardy. Grapes will grow in most soils but do better with good drainage and of course they love the sun. Deciduous.
