Grape varieties

Marechal Foch

This hybrid red grape variety is named after a French World War I hero and is legendary for its high tonnage and ability to withstand the worst winter conditions.

It’s also vilified for low-quality wine, which is why little is left in the Pacific Northwest.

Those wineries that still produce Marechal Foch craft it with great care and can come up with surprisingly high-quality reds that will pair well with roasted meats.
