Rose of Sharon Wine Details
Price: $12.95 per bottle

Description: SOLD OUT - A fun loving semi-sweet Rose' made from the Catawba grape. It has the aroma of real grape juice and a fresh fruity taste. This wine makes a delicious Sangria. It is best served chilled with a light fare.

Varietal Definition
This was perhaps the earliest discovered native American grape, growing wild in Ohio and New York valleys, but it has since been surpassed by the Concord as the most widely planted native East Coast grape varietal. It primarily is used to make off-dry or sweet red wines, with a pronounced foxy (a unique aroma/flavor profile variously described as wild and musky) labrusca flavor. A number of producers also utilize this grape to make sparkling wine.
