  • The Land of the Grapes
  • We grapes have been around forever, since at least 6000 B.C.! The first home I remember was in Egypt, in 4000 BC. King Hammurabi used us grapes for wine.
  • The first time us grapes came to the United States was in California when the boom hit in 1839. A former trapper from Kentucky, William Wolfskil .helped me make my first home as a table grape in the Mexican colonial pueblo now known as Los Angeles.
  • People were happy because in my old world they only used me for wine now they use me for, wine, dried fruits, raisins and fresh table grapes.
  • A Scottish immigrant turned California vineyard owner, William Thompson, imported a variety of us grapes from areas of modern Iran or Turkey. Working with local rootstock, in 1876 he was able to create thin-skinned, sweet, seedless grapes.
  • Us grapes continue to have an important symbolic meaning for Christians when they take Holy Communion.
