Could your dream wine grape name win?

If you’ve ever thought it would be awesome to name a grape for wine, now you can try your hand at it. Bruce Reisch, horticulture professor at Cornell University, has bred two new varieties of grapes, a white and red, and is asking the public to help naming them.

So far, more than 100 people, from as far away as Australia and Scandinavia, have submitted their ideas for names to replace the scientific names of the grapes: NY76.0844.24, for the white, and NY95.0301.01, for the dark red. It’s not as simple as slapping some wine-y sounding names together, though, Reisch comments. The names need to be evocative of the taste and unique characteristics of these varieties. Names can’t sound too familiar, but they must be easy to pronounce and make the drinker think of something positive. While that might not seem like such a heady task, with over 7,000 grape names already taken, it’s not for the unimaginative.

To help on your grape-naming mission, brief descriptions of each grape variety have been released. The dark red one is the first to be made available from the "no spray" vineyard, an organic variety that was initially developed in 1995. The red grape is described to have a hint of blueberry (which may be a good summer wine). The white variety was made to stand up to colder winter temperature and has good year-round productivity. The white grape is descibed as "citrusy" and "aromatic."

These aren’t the first releases to come from Cornell’s program, which has been producing grapes since 1888 and has released 56 varieties so far. While they haven’t all been blockbuster wine hits, the university’s most famous grape, Cayuga White, makes up more than $20 million of wine production in New York state. Reisch hopes that this contest will help to publicize the new grapes and get people to buy them. Any ideas? You have until Monday to come up with your masterpiece.


What are Marquis Grapes?

Today I picked my first Michigan grown grapes of the season - Marquis Grapes. They were grown by Spiech farms in Lawton, Michigan and found their way to the shelves of my local Meijer store. They are green colored grape, or what would be called a white grape is juice or wine where being made from them. Some people believe they are the best eating grape grown in the eastern part of the country.

Marquis grapes were developed in 1964 through a breeding program at Cornell University. It was made by crossing Athens and Emerald Seedless.

My Experience with these grapes
Tart/Sweet: Sweet with a tart finish
Seed/Seedless: Seedless
Grape Flavor (Rating Scale 1-10): 8

Overall Feeling: This grape is a winner. It is sweet but finishes tart in your mouth. The flavor resembles that of a concord grape, which is interesting to experience in a green colored grape. It is a slip skin grape has the inner pulp comes out of the skin when you bite down on it. Great out of hand eating grape. If I get some more and don't just eat them out maybe I will see how good of a jelly they make.

Availability: Marquis grapes ripen 10 days before Concord grapes. They are considered a mid-season variety. They are available from late August to November. First time I had them was from a Meijer store in Ann Arbor, Michigan. This year I picked them up at my local farmer's market a week before Labor Day.
