Meadowlark’s Song

Meadowlark’s Song Wine Details

Description: Meadowlark’s Song is a semi-dry white made primarily from the LaCrosse grapes grown at Prairie Crossing. Meadowlarks are frequent visitors who can be seen and heard from the rows of LaCrosse grapevines. This wine’s smooth taste and crisp finish mimic the lively melody of the meadowlark.

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.
