Lavina Wine Details

Description: Concord grapes are considered the American grape. This is a light sweet dessert wine with that classic ‘grapey’ flavor. The grapes come from the Niagra Valley in Canada. Good for almost any occasion.

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.
