WHITES:

2018 Chardonnay, $16.00/ bottle: Fermented in 3rd year oak barrels.  This is a full bodied Chard with a smooth finish and flavor notes of pear and pineapple.  This wine should cellar well and improve with age.

Seyval Blanc, $15.50/ bottle, A crisp semi-dry wine with citrus fruit aromas and a flavor that presents hints of grapefruit and lemon.  Great for seafood pairings.  A Seyval for the Pinot Gris & Sauvignon Blanc lover.

Seyval Blanc Sparkling (“Pet Nat”), $19.00/ bottle, A sparkling wine made in a Petillant Naturel style.  This Seyval Blanc was bottled before fermentation was complete, trapping carbon dioxide in the bottle resulting in a lightly sparkling wine.  No sulfites. Sediment in the bottle is part of this style wine.  Store upright, serve cold.   Refreshing and crisp!

NOHO Blush, $15.00/bottle.  An off-dry blush. A wonderful blend of 87% Chardonel, and 13% Chambourcin. 

A floral/ raspberry aroma to start, with flavors that hint of citric fruits and raspberries.  Crisp refreshing finish.

Cayuga White, $16.00/ bottle, $29.00 1.5 L eco bag.  A wine made on the sweet side.  Light fruity aromas with sweet melon and tropical fruit flavors, along with a hint of peach.  It has a beautiful light lemon tart finish.  Best served cold.

MAY WINE, $16.00 bottle, $29.00 1.5 L eco bag.  A traditional semi-sweet German wine, it is Riesling wine that is infused with sweet woodruff. Floral aromas, with sweet undertones of freshly cut hay and flavors of honey, nutmeg and apple. Make a Mai Wein punch by adding strawberries, something bubbly and garnish with fresh strawberries.

Apple wine, $13.00 /bottle.   Made with local apples. Late variety apple aromas and wonderful blended flavors of Macoun, Honey Crisp and other apples, with a semi-sweet cider like finish.  Pairs very well with turkey, pork roast or just sipping with cheese and crackers.

Ice Apple Wine*, $30.00, 375 ml bottle. Made from our own apples, this ice wine is truly a dessert wine full of concentrated apple sweetness and just the right amount of alcohol for a nicely balanced wine.  *A limited production wine.

Mead, $15.00/bottle. A dry honey wine, made from our own Western Mass. wildflower honey. Starting with light herbal aromas this wine finishes with an even lighter herbal finish. This wine pairs well with turkey.

REDS:

2018 Cabernet Sauvignon, $21.00.  A full bodied dry wine.  It has a wonderful fruit jam aroma with a hint of vanilla.  Exhibits some black currant and plum flavors.  Good tannins from 16 months on oak, but with an incredibly easy finish.

2019 Cabernet Sauvignon, $21.00.  A dry well balanced wine. Vanilla and light cherry aroma.  Jam like fruit flavors with hints of black cherries and currants. Silky mouth feel with a peppery finish.  This wine spent 18 months on oak, but the tannins are balanced and soft.

Le Tre Sorelle, $21.00.  A dry fruitful blend (44% Cabernet Franc, 44% Cabernet Sauvignon, 12% Chambourcin).  A full bodied, easy drinking wine with wonderful rich flavors of cherry & black currant with some toasty and vanilla characteristics.  A mild peppery finish. 

2019 Grande Fratello, $21.00.  A blend on the dry side (66% MA. Marquette, 34% MA. Chambourcin).  A floral and fruity nose.  This is an easy drinking red with hints of dried stone fruit and berries (cherry and raspberry dominate the palate).  Light tannins and a very tame finish.

2018 Chambourcin, $16.00 A stainless steel fermented off-dry red.  Berry aromas to start, fruit forward flavors of raspberry and strawberry dominate with an easy going finish.  Reminiscent of a Beaujolais Nouveau style red wine.

Frontenac, $16.00 A semi-sweet deep, rich full bodied wine with a wonderful fruit forward aroma and excellent flavors of dark cherry and raspberry jam.  This wine was lightly oaked giving it enough soft tannin to provide a really nice balance to the fruit in this wine. A soft fruity red with a long soft finish.  Appealing!

Red Hen Red, $16.00/bottle - Crisp/bright, fruity sweet wine. Aroma of candied apples with hints of berries. Nice mocha/toffee flavor combined with sweet raspberry/strawberry fruit flavors.  An easy sweet finish.  Half way to a sangria.  Just add your fruit and you are good to go. Great for picnics or just lounging on the deck.

Wicked Blue (Blueberry Wine), $17.00. This semi-dry wine has light a floral, blueberry and cinnamon spice aroma with a distinct and excellent blueberry fruit flavor.  It is like a blueberry pie in a bottle.  Made from 100% local blueberries and nothing else.
