Description: This sweet flirty variety is perfect for sipping on warm summer evenings or late nights with friends. This fragrant mid-Atlantic native variety finishes with flavors of strawberries.

Varietal Definition
This was perhaps the earliest discovered native American grape, growing wild in Ohio and New York valleys, but it has since been surpassed by the Concord as the most widely planted native East Coast grape varietal. It primarily is used to make off-dry or sweet red wines, with a pronounced foxy (a unique aroma/flavor profile variously described as wild and musky) labrusca flavor. A number of producers also utilize this grape to make sparkling wine.
