New Varietals


An ancient grape varietal, Viognier was nearly extinct in 1965 when its production had dwindeled to only 8 acres in Northern Rhone. Today it has garnered increased popularity around the world, producing a wine with a strong floral nose, and nice crisp fruit on the palate. Notes of peach, pear, and apple.

Grüner Veltliner

Gr&#252ner Veltliner is a relatively new varietal to Northern Michigan, which is primarily grown in Austria, Slovakia and the Czech Republic. This varietal produces a food friendly wine with citrus and peach characteristics, as well as occasional spicy notes. One of the few wines that pairs with Asparagus. Very limited current production.
