The origins of the grape are rooted in ancient history and interwoven with myth and legend. In Homer’s Iliad, Achilles, after the death at Troy of his young friend Patroclus, to whom he had lent his own armor, received a new shield from Hephaestus, the god of the forge. The shield was ornately decorated with scenes full of life, including a golden vineyard.
The grape and the precious drink made from it, wine, have always been objects of veneration in all cultures. Grapes probably arrived in Italy in the first or second millennium BC and spread throughout the North by the Etruscans.
Today, Italy is one of the world’s largest producers of table grapes, especially the white variety Italia e Vittoria and the red varieties Moscato and Red Globe.
