Capitol View Red

Capitol View Red Wine Details

Description: These were named because you can see the capitol building in Lincoln from our porch. You have a beautiful view of the Lincoln skyline and surrounding fields all year round.

Varietal Definition
Frontenac’s overall viticultural performance and excellent wine quality are directly responsible for its success in Minnesota, where more of its vines are growing than any other variety. This recently released red wine grape from the University of Minnesota is a cross of Landot 4511 and Vitis Riparia. The vine’s chief advantage is its extremely vigorous and productive nature.
