Concord Wine Details
Price: $9.00 per bottle

Description: This classic backyard grape is transformed into a sweet, very grapey red table wine. A sentimental reminder of wines your grandparents used to make if you grew up on farms in the region. This is great wine to start with for beginning wine appreciation. This is a fun wine to enjoy with friends while gathered around a roaring bonfire. (8% residual sugar)

Varietal Definition
This native American grape varietal (of the genus vitis labrusca) is used in making old- fashioned, "rustic" country-style red wines, often displaying what most people think of as a "grape jelly aroma." In fact, the Concord is widely used in the production of jellies and jams. This East Coast varietal produces wines that have been variously described as foxy, meaning they have a unique aroma/flavor profile variously described as wild and musky. Mogen David is perhaps the quintessential Concord wine.
