Marechal Foch

Marechal Foch Wine Details

Description: An all-Iowa exclusive. Pronounced “Mare-a-shall Foash”, this red is made from the Marechal Foch grapes grown at Cedar Ridge and two other local vineyards. With only three days of skin contact, the grapes are pressed and allowed to finish fermenting in barrel, softening and rounding out the tart cherry flavor of this grape. Serve with a variety of cheeses, and ham or pork loin with a sweet marinade.

Varietal Definition
Marechal Foch:
A french-american hybrid grape, with french Alsace Gamay origins, noted for producing deeply colored and strongly varietal wines considered by some to have a "Burgundian" character. Also known under the name Foch.
