Trebbiano is an Italian wine grape, one of the most planted grape varieties in the world. It tends to yield undistinguished wine, it does not keep long. Known as ugni blanc, it has many other names reflecting a family of local subtypes in Italy and France, its high acidity makes it important in Armagnac productions. Trebbiano may have originated in the Eastern Mediterranean, was known in Italy in Roman times. A subtype was recognized in Bologna in the thirteenth century, as Ugni blanc made its way to France during the Papal retreat to Avignon in the fourteenth century. An Italian study published in 2008 using DNA typing showed a close genetic relationship between Garganega on the one hand and Trebbiano and several other grape varieties on the other hand, it is therefore possible. During a series of trials between 1924 and 1930, Trebbiano was crossed with Gewürztraminer to create the pink-skinned Italian wine grape variety Manzoni rosa. In the early 21st century, DNA analysis has suggested that there may be a close genetic relationship between Trebbiano and the Emilia-Romagna wine grape Alionza.
Like many Italian grapes, Trebbiano came to Argentina with Italian immigrants. "White Hermitage" came to Australia with James Busby in 1832. The major plantings are in New South Wales and South Australia, where it is used for brandy and for blending with other grapes in table wine, it is known as'Thalia' in both Bulgaria and Portugal.'Ugni blanc' is the most planted white grape of France, being found along the Provençal coast, in the Gironde and Charente. It is known as'Clairette Ronde','Clairette de Vence','Queue de Renard', in Corsica as'Rossola'. Most of the resulting table wine is unremarkable and is blended or turned into industrial alcohol. Under the name'St. Émilion,' Trebbiano is important in brandy production, being the most common grape variety in Cognac and Armagnac. In the Armagnac / Côtes de Gascogne area it is used in the white Floc de Gascogne; the Trebbiano family account for around a third of all white wine in Italy. It is mentioned in more than 80 of Italy's DOCs, although it has just seven of its own: Trebbiano d'Abruzzo, Trebbiano di Aprilia, Trebbiano di Arborea, Trebbiano di Capriano del Colle, Trebbiano di Romagna and Trebbiano Val Trebbia dei Colli Piacentini and Trebbiano di Soave.
The most successful Trebbiano-based blend are the Orvieto whites of Umbria, which use a local clone called Procanico. Trebbiano is used to produce balsamic vinegar; as in Bulgaria, the variety is known as'Thalia' in Portugal. Italian immigrants brought Trebbiano to California, but is seen as a single variety table wine; the vine is vigorous and high-yielding, with long cylindrical bunches of tough-skinned berries that yield acidic yellow juice.

Antoine de la Mothe Cadillac
Antoine Laumet de la Mothe, sieur de Cadillac referred to as Antoine de la Mothe Cadillac, was a French explorer and adventurer in New France which stretched from Eastern Canada to Louisiana on the Gulf of Mexico. He rose from a modest beginning in Acadia in 1683 as an explorer, a trader of alcohol and furs, he achieved various positions of political importance in the colony, he was the commander of Fort de Buade in St. Ignace, Michigan in 1694. In 1701, he founded Fort Pontchartrain du Détroit which became the city of Detroit, which he commanded until 1710. Between 1710 and 1716, he was the governor of Louisiana, although he did not arrive in that territory until 1713, his knowledge of the coasts of New England and the Great Lakes area was appreciated by Frontenac, governor of New France, Pontchartrain, Secretary of State for the Navy. This earned him various favors, including the Order of Saint Louis from King Louis XIV; the Jesuits in Canada, accused him of perverting the Indians with his alcohol trading, he was imprisoned for a few months in Quebec in 1704, again in the Bastille on his return to France in 1717.
Upon his arrival in America, La Mothe adopted his title after the town of Cadillac, Gironde in southwestern France. The city of Detroit became the world center of automobile production in the 20th century. William H. Murphy and Henry M. Leland founded the Cadillac auto company and paid homage to him by using his name for their company and his armorial bearings as its logo in 1902. Various places bear his name in America, in particular Cadillac Mountain in Maine and the town of Cadillac, Michigan, he was hailed as a hero until the 1950s and the rise of liberal scholarship, but more recent writers have not admired him. Zoltvany claims that "he most was not one of the'great early heroes' and deserves to be ranked with the'worst scoundrels to set foot in New France'." Cadillac was born Antoine Laumet on March 5, 1658, in the small town of Saint-Nicolas-de-la-Grave in the French Province of Gascony. His father, Jean Laumet, was born in the village of Caumont-sur-Garonne, he became a lawyer in the Parliament of Toulouse.
In 1652 Jean was appointed lieutenant to the judge of Saint-Nicolas-de-la-Grave by Cardinal Mazarin. He was appointed as a judge in 1664. Antoine's mother, Jeanne Péchagut, was the daughter of a landowner. La Mothe's adult correspondence reveals that his youth included rigorous study at a Jesuit institution where he learned theology, the law, agriculture and zoology. In a record of service he filled out in 1675, he said that he had enlisted in the military as a cadet at the age of 17 in the Dampierre regiment, in Charleroi, nowadays Belgium. Two years in personal letters, however, he reported that he had been an officer in the Clérambault regiment in Thionville, in 1682 he had joined the Albret regiment, in Thionville. At the age of 25, Antoine Laumet departed from France to the New World, his father lost a lawsuit against a lawyer in Castelsarrasin. In addition, he had lost financial support following the death of Cardinal Mazarin and suffered the current intolerance against Protestants. Laumet may have embarked on his voyage by devious means, as historians have not found his name on any passenger list of ships departing from a French port.
In 1683, Antoine Laumet arrived at the capital of Acadia. During the next four years, he explored his new country in all directions, extending his explorations to New England and New Holland, pushing south to the Caroline, now North Carolina and South Carolina, learning some Native American languages and habits, he entered into a business relationship with Denis Guyon, a merchant of Quebec. On June 25, 1687, he married Marie-Thérèse, 17, in Quebec; the marriage certificate is the first document. He identified as "Antoine de Lamothe, écuyer, sieur de Cadillac", signed as "De Lamothe Launay". Like many immigrants, he took advantage of emigrating to the New World to create a new identity to conceal the reasons that drove him from France; this new identity "ne sort pas de son sac". Antoine Laumet remembered Sylvestre d'Esparbes de Lussan de Gout, baron of Lamothe-Bardigues, lord of Cadillac, Launay and Le Moutet, he knew him for at least two reasons: Bardigues, Launay and Le Moutet are villages and localities close to his birthplace, Saint-Nicolas-de-la-Grave, Antoine's father Jean Laumet was a lawyer in the Parliament of Toulouse.
The sons encountered each other during their studies. Second son in his family, Laumet identified with the second son of the baron, he used the phonic similarity between his own name and that of Launay, creating the name: Antoine de Lamothe-Launay. He took the title of écuyer, the rank held by a family's second son, followed by the title sieur of Cadillac; this accorded with the Gascon custom whereby the junior family member succeeds the elder son upon the latter's death. Laumet created a new name and noble origin, while protecting himself from possible recognition by persons who knew him in France. In addition, he presented his own titles of nobility, as illustrated by armorial bearings that he created by associating the shield with the three « merlettes » of the baron de Lamothe-Bardigues and that of the Virès family; the marriage proved to be a fertile one. The Lamothe-Cadillac couple had s
"Telegram Sam" is a song written by Marc Bolan for the British rock group T. Rex, appearing on their 1972 album The Slider; the song was their third UK number one single, remaining at the top of the charts for two weeks before being knocked off the top by "Son of My Father" by Chicory Tip. The lyrics feature numerous figures such as Bobby, Golden Nose Slim, Jungle Faced Jake and Purple Pie Pete, it contains these lines Marc Bolan wrote to refer to himself: Me I funk/but I don't care/I ain't no square/with my corkscrew hair, a line which industrial rock band KMFDM would borrow for their song "Me I Funk". The riff is similar in character to their massive hit from the previous year, "Get It On" but in the key of A rather than E. "Telegram Sam" was not as successful as "Get It On" worldwide, it only peaked at number 67 in the Billboard Hot 100. This was the band's last single charted in the US. "Telegram Sam" was the first single to be issued by Marc Bolan's own T. Rex Wax Co. label, was released on 21 January 1972.
The b-side featured two songs in the UK, "Cadilac" and "Baby Strange", the latter included in the album The Slider. "Telegram Sam" was written by Bolan about his manager Tony Secunda, his'main man' in respect of him being Bolan's manager and narcotics supplier. In 1980, it was covered by the gothic rock band Bauhaus as a single, which peaked at number 12 in New Zealand, it was covered by the Croatian punk-rock band Psihomodo Pop.

Muscadelle is a white wine grape variety. It has a simple aroma of grape juice and raisins like grapes of the Muscat family of grapes, but it is unrelated. DNA analysis has indicated that Muscadelle is a cross between Gouais blanc and an unidentified grape variety. In France, it is a minor constituent such as Sauternes, it makes up more than 10% of the blend, dominated by Sémillon and Sauvignon blanc. Throughout the 1990s and the beginning of the 21st century, plantings of the grape were falling; some sweet wines from Monbazillac, on the other hand, can have a higher proportion of Muscadelle. In Australia, the grape is used to make an less-popular fortified wine, now known as Topaque; those made in the Rutherglen region receive considerable aging in hot cellars, leading to a maderised and oxidative character. A few other Australian wine regions, including the Barossa Valley, make similar wines. A few other Australian wineries use Muscadelle to make table wines in a similar way to French wineries.
In accordance with an agreement reached with the EU, Australian producers have until June 2020 to phase out their use of the term Tokay, but many have begun the process, choosing instead the name Topaque to represent this style. The name, convinced some Australian producers that the grape was Pinot gris. Others thought the grape might have been Hárslevelű, one of the components of the famous Hungarian sweet wine Tokaji. However, it has been proven. Muscadelle is known under the synonyms Angelicaut, Blanc Cadillac, Blanche Douce, Bouillenc Muscat, Cadillac, Colle, Colle Musquette, Douzanelle, Guepie, Guilan Doux, Guilan Muscat, Guilan Musque, Guillan Musque, Guinlhan Musque, Marseillais, Muscadela, Muscadelle de Bordelais, Muscadet Doux, Muscat Fou, Pedro Ximenes Krimsky, Raisin de Musco, Raisinotte, Sauvignon à Gros Grains, Sauvignon Muscadelle, Sauvignon vert, Tokay and White Angelica
