Volcano Red

Volcano Red Wine Details
Price: $16.00 per bottle

Description: Sip into Volcano Red and you’ll know why we call it Pele’s Delight. One of our original fruit blends, this red is a blend of burgundy, French Columbard, and the locally grown jaboticaba berry. It is light-bodied and fruity, with a beautiful cherry color and cherry-cranberry finish. This versatile red can be served at room temperature or slightly chilled, and is a delicious companion to red meat and Italian dishes. Remember to toast Pele when drinking Volcano Red!

Varietal Definition
Better known as French Colombard in North America. Acidic grape crushed by some northern Californian producers and made into a fruity white wine of simple character in both dry and sweet versions. Mainly grown in California to provide acidic backbone for white "jug" wine blends. Still grown in France where it is used for white wine blends known as "Bordeaux Blanc" and is also used for distilling into brandy. Also widely grown in South Africa.
