Product Description

Marechal Foch (“Foch”) is a red variety of hybrid grape.  It was created in 1886 in Colmar, Alsace, by the French Viticulturist Eugene Kuhlman by crossing the hybrid grape Millardet et Grasset 101-14 (which is vitis vinifera x vitis rupestris) with the vitis vinifera Gold riesling.   Kuhlman also developed the hybrid grapes Leon Millot (“Millot”) , Marechal Joffre and Lucie Kuhlmann from the same trials.
