2021 Featured Wines

DRY

  • Seyval Blanc – Bright, crisp and clean, this blend of Seyval Blanc shows vibrant acidity, citrus aromas and grapefruit flavors.
  • General’s Reserve Red – A classic blend of European varietals and native French hybrid grape varietals resulting in a premium red wine with lush fruit, soft tannins and a hint of oak.
  • Chambourcin Rosé – Chambourcin grapes are lightly pressed to extract a light, rosé color and the fruity aromas of this Illinois grown grape. This dry rosé boasts notes of strawberry and watermelon with a crisp, zesty finish.

SEMI-DRY

  • Oktoberfest – This German-style, semi-dry white wine is a blend of Traminette, Riesling, and Muscat grapes. Our most popular wine!

SEMI-SWEET

  • Muscat Canelli – This white wine is a luscious, semi-sweet, fruity variety with aromas of peaches, pineapple, honeysuckle and vanilla.
  • Señor Sangria – Olė!  A summer favorite! This light red wine is infused with natural fruit flavors and tastes great served over ice or spritzed with white soda and your favorite citrus fruit added.
  • Señorita Sangarita – Tastes just like a Margarita. A refreshing summer treat that can be served blended or over ice as a wine spritzer.

FRUIT

  • Rhubarb – Light, fruity, and delicate in color, this wine tastes like biting into a piece of rhubarb pie. A delightful combination of sweetness and tart rhubarb flavor, enjoy as an aperitif, after dinner with a light dessert or take it along as your “beach buddy” companion.
  • Spiced Apple – The perfect wine as we move into fall! Our Spiced Apple is made from locally sourced apples and apple pie spices.

SPECIALTY

  • Mimosa – The perfect brunch wine! Lively and expressive Mimosa, without the fuss. A light white wine blended with freshly squeezed orange juice and spritzed. Gently twirl the bottle before opening it to mix, and you’re ready to go!
  • Honey Mead – Fermented from Mississippi Valley Wildflower Honey, this sweet nectar has notes of honey, floral and citrus.
  • Jalapeño Wine – Pepper up with this exciting white wine infused with serrano and jalapeño peppers. A wine with a sweet heat and a great new base for your favorite Bloody Mary.
