759 Vinifera

This minor planet is named after Vitis vinifera, the plant species known as the grape vine. Humans have been using this plant to make wine for a very long time. Indeed, the discoverer of this minor planet chose this name because his ancestors were in the wine-making business.

The symbol of this minor planet is a bunch of grapes, depicted as six tiny circles arranged in the shape of an inverted triangle, with a base like the glyph of a wineglass.
