Concord

Concord Wine Details
Price: $9.00 per bottle

Description: Our Concord wine is made from Concord grapes we have grown in our vineyard, fermented dry, and sweetened to taste. This wine recently won a gold medal in the Tennessee wine competition in December 2001. Tastes just like your granddad made it.

Varietal Definition
Concord:
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.
