Frontenac Wine Details

Description: Our Frontenac wine is made from Iowa grapes grown in our vineyard and purchased from another local vineyard. It is a semi-dry red table wine that is not oak aged therefore missing that "bite" that is commonly associated with some red wines.

Varietal Definition
Frontenac’s overall viticultural performance and excellent wine quality are directly responsible for its success in Minnesota, where more of its vines are growing than any other variety. This recently released red wine grape from the University of Minnesota is a cross of Landot 4511 and Vitis Riparia. The vine’s chief advantage is its extremely vigorous and productive nature.
