Mission

(aka. Pais)

The Mission or Pais grape was the first Vitis vinifera vine planted in North America. From 1697 until well into the 1870s, this grape dominated vineyards in California. It was introduced to the region by Father Juan Ugarte, and the vine plantings followed the development of Missions as far north as San Jose. Overtime Mission has lost acreage in California for numerous reasons including urban development and lack of marketing appeal, but pockets of the vine remain including some old vines Mission in the Cucamonga AVA. Here it is often used to make fortified wines. 'Pais' reaches its height of popularity in South America, where it is planted four times more than any other grape variety. Pais is revered by the Jesuit Brotherhood, Chileans and Argentineans alike. In South America it is used both to make dry red table wines and South America's preferred distilled wine known as Pisco.
