Vinifera Wine Grapes Cards


I encountered these cards at an Amador County winery.  One of the people pouring the tastings got it out when I asked about the Semillon grape varietal, as I was not familiar with the Semillon grape.  (The wine they’d made from the grape was very yummy.)  Unfortunately, the winery didn’t sell the deck.

A little time noodling around on the internet the next week revealed the publisher: Ghigo Press.  In addition to these cards, they offer calendars and posters all featuring the same luscious photography.  I mean, really: these photos make grapes SEXY.  They offer similar collections for Coffee, Spices and Jazz.

This deck is just stunning.  As I say, the photographs are really gorgeous.  On the reverse side is a brief description of the grape, including history, myths, science and food pairings.  I couldn’t wait to lay my hands on a deck of my very own!  The price is reasonable, only $15.95, plus shipping and the purchase couldn’t have been easier.

And don’t tell anybody, but I’m giving a bunch of these as gifts this year!
