The name Shiraz is taken from the city of Shiraz, Iran, where it is said
that the process of wine making originated 7,000 years ago. According to
some historic accounts, Guy De’Sterimberg brought Shiraz to southern France
after visiting Iran during the crusades. Eventually, he became a hermit and
created a vineyard on a hill near his home in the Rhone River Valley. This
wine became known as the Hermitage.

@AshLuvsJonnyStew I live in NZ and syrah is becoming one of my favourite
wines. I prefer the NZ style, it’s not as much of a ‘fruit bomb’ as the
Australian ones (some of which I must admit are very nice too). It’s more
peppery and spicy, I often get aromas of vanilla and gunpowder.
Shiraz is city in Iran. wine making is an old and traditional business
there. recently they have found a wine making workshop belongs to over 3000
years ago in Shiraz. After Islamic revelation in 1979, government banned
alcohol so did the wine making business too. today, if you travel to Iran,
Shiraz, you’ll see vineyards outside the city as far as your eyes can
see… unfortunately now a days, they just export their grapes as fruit and
other related products. this name, Shiraz, comes from there
Shiraz is indeed a city in Iran but the grape called Syrah or Shiraz has
been shown to be purely French by DNA analysis.
Never drank a day on my life. Just like the name of this wine
You should. That’s like saying you’ve never had a cup of coffee…it’s an
experience that just has to happen.
Australia gave it the name Shiraz…
Shirazi wine refers to the now-defunct wine historically produced around
the city of Shiraz in Persia. Shiraz wine or the city of Shiraz has NO
connection with the modern-day red grape variety “Shiraz”, a synonym used
in Australia and some other countries for the grape variety Syrah, which
originates from northern Rhône valley in France.
fuck you and australia all together…
Fuck you and your ignorance ….. all together
Just like any other retarded racist
It was over when you forsook sense for childishness.
Not really, as Shirazi wines were all white… The name comes from the fact
that it was once thought the syrah grape came from Shiraz in Persia to the
area of Rhone in ancient times, yet all current evidence suggests it’s just
Awww are you just angry because you were wrong? How cute 🙂
