Noble Grapes: The Backbone of the Wine Industry

Chances are you haven't heard the term "noble" being used to describe grapes. No one really knows for sure when the term "Noble Grapes" was first used. As far as I can tell, credit is due to France's King Louis XIV. King Louis wanted to declare his country's dominance economically and artistically, so he created a list of six grapes and called them "noble."

  1. Cabernet Sauvignon
  2. Merlot
  3. Pinot Noir
  4. Chardonnay
  5. Sauvignon Blanc
  6. Riesling

Fast forward to today ... we now have 18 grapes which make the list! Nine of them are white and nine of them are red. Together, they make up the backbone of the entire wine industry.

Did you know we actually have videos covering each of these grapes? In each video, we walk through the basics of the grape varietal, the aroma and taste profiles of the wines they produce, and somesuggested food pairings. You can check out these videos in our YouTube playlist called "Noble Grapes."

If you watch all 18 noble grape videos plus the series intro (for a total of 19 videos), we will send you a framed certificate with your name on it ... for free! If you're interested, fill out this form.

If 19 videos is too intimidating, you can actually start with 7. If you watch the intro video plus the 6 historic noble grape videos, we'll send you a digital certificate. If that's more your speed, go ahead and fill out that same form, and be sure to indicate the corresponding program level.

Looking forward to having you join me on this journey!
