Concord Wine Details
Price: $9.75 per bottle

Description: This wine, made from the native North American Concord grape, has it`s own unique taste. The Concord grape is primarily grown and used in the grape juice market, and with one sip, you`ll know why. Incredibly popular, this wine is a great social wine, sweet and very grapey tasting with a distinctive Concord flavour. Not necessarily a table wine, but definatley delicious!

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.
