Concord Wine Details

Description: What can be said about Concord wine? Whispering Hills' own, Mike Killinger describes it as, "grape juice with a kick!" Sweet and jammy, it is everything you remember about picking Concord grapes and eating them right off the vine.

Varietal Definition
This native American grape varietal (of the genus vitis labrusca) is used in making old- fashioned, "rustic" country-style red wines, often displaying what most people think of as a "grape jelly aroma." In fact, the Concord is widely used in the production of jellies and jams. This East Coast varietal produces wines that have been variously described as foxy, meaning they have a unique aroma/flavor profile variously described as wild and musky. Mogen David is perhaps the quintessential Concord wine.
