LaCrosse Wine Details

Description: A unique white wine made from the LaCrosse grape and barrel fermented. This is our winemaker’s favorite, with an incredible pear fragrance and flavor. Pear beginnings evolve to finish with subtle apricot, citrus and melon notes. Enjoy this wine on its own, to compliment an appetizer, or with lighter fare.

Varietal Definition
La Crosse:
LaCrosse is a part of a long line of successful Elmer Swenson-created grapes. A hybrid of Seyval Blanc and the Minn. 78 x S.1000, the vine produces grapes capable of making good quality, fruity white wine. Compared to its parent Seyval, the vine is cold hardier, and ripens slightly earlier. Grown in Minnesota and Wisconsin, the high-yielding vine will do well in all the upper Midwest states with short growing seasons and cold winters. It has average susceptibility to the usual diseases.
