Country White

Country White Wine Details
Price: $8.00 per bottle

Description: A sweet, white wine. This wine is a blend of Cayuga White and Vidal Blanc grapes which produce a savory sweet wine with delicate flavors. One of our favorite times to enjoy this wine is on warm summer afternoons, with breads, cheeses, quiches and fruits.

Varietal Definition
A hybrid cross between the Johannisberg Riesling and Seyval Blanc grapes. Makes a fruity white wine of mild intensity somewhat similar to Aurore. Widely grown in the Finger Lakes region of New York State and other cool regions of North America.
Vidal Blanc:
A white French hybrid once widely planted in the south of France, it is more suitable for growing in warm and humid climates like the South. These vines are prolific, producing large golden berries, suitable for eating out of hand as table grapes. When vinified, Villard Blanc makes a fruity, mildly intense white wine (somewhat Sauvignon Blanc like) of fairly neutral and simple flavors. Primarily used for blending.
