White Wines

Chardonnay

A fruit-forward Chardonnay with luscious flavors of light citrus, ripe figs and spice. A rich, almost creamy texture accented by a light touch of grapefruit and crisp finish.

Pinot Gris

Crisp, clean flavors of apples and spice with hints of oak and vanilla, fragrance of wildflowers and freshly mowed hay, all rounded into a dry finish. Classic with local fish such as whitefish, light dishes and chicken.

Woodland White

Made with the obscure varietal Auxerrois, this wine starts with crisp apple on the palate, midway, Honeydew melon, and finishes of white peach. Pairs with seafood, shellfish or sushi.

Pinot Blanc

Michigan Wine Competition Best of Class for a dry white in 2012 and 2013. Crisp lemongrass and tropical flavors, with notes of banana, pineapple, and grapefruit.

Dry White Riesling

Delicious Riesling characteristics of pear and peach in a fully dry, traken style wine with a crisp bracing finish. These grapes are picked three weeks earlier than the Semi-Sweet Riesling. The Dry White Riesling from Chateau Fontaine recieved the John Rose Award for best Riesling in 2012 at the Finger Lakes International Wine Competition; this award is given to the Riesling wine considered best in the world.

Gewurztraminer

A spicy, floral grape, this wine is a great pairing to your Thanksgiving dinner and works well with Pad Thai and Curry. Starts with a lovely rose petal nose, opening to apple, pear, peach and apricot on the palate, with spice notes of pepper, clove and black licorice.

Semi-Sweet White Riesling

Mother nature sweetens the grapes with an additional 3 weeks on the vine from when the dry Riesling grapes are picked. This wine is full and racy with apricots and peaches on the palate, flowery with haunting mineral in the background, delicate sweetness balanced with firm acidity creating a harmonious experience for the senses. The Semi-Sweet White Riesling won the John Rose Award at the International Finger Lakes Wine Competition in 2013 for Best Riesling.
