Marechal Foch, a wine grape variety, was named after the French marshal Ferdinand Foch. It was developed in Alsace, France by hybridizer Eugene Kuhlmann . It is a cross of Goldriesling (itself a cross of Riesling and Courtiller Musque ) with a Vitis riparia - Vitis rupestris cross. It ripens early and is resistant to fungal diseases. It is used to make a light red wine similar to Beaujolais. It is a cold-hardy grape that produces small black berries.
