NEW RELEASE! Clarion is a new grape developed by the University of Minnesota and officially recognized as a grape in May of 2023. Our first bottling of Clarion is semi-dry with notes of melon, pear, and banana.
Itasca is a new grape varietal developed by the University of Minnesota to thrive in cold hardy climates. We invested in growing Itasca at our vineyard as soon as it was made available and were one of the earliest wineries in the United States to grow and cultivate this grape. Similar to a Sauvignon Blanc or a Pinot Grigio, Itasca is a dry white wine with notes of pear, peach and melon. Its bright acidity pairs well with a variety of foods.
This semi-dry blush is made from 100% Door Peninsula grown split of of Marquette and Frontenac grapes. It is crisp and light bodied with slight minerality but very fruit forward with the taste of fresh picked strawberries. The nose has intense aromas of strawberry with notes of grapefruit, dragonfruit and melon. Pairs great with seafood, salads and pasta dishes.
