Description: Iowa Nouveau, a light and fruity red wine, is our first wine of the season. Made entirely from grapes grown in our Mahaska County, Iowa, vineyards, Iowa Nouveau pairs well with vegetable and beef soups and stews as well as traditional holiday meals. 2011 Iowa Nouveau is best when consumed soon after purchase. Serve slightly chilled.

Varietal Definition

St. Croix is the one red wine variety that Elmer Swenson has released to date. It is similar to his white variety, Kay Gray, in that it is hardy, low acid and disease-resistant.

A french-american hybrid grape, with french Alsace Gamay origins, noted for producing deeply colored and strongly varietal wines considered by some to have a "Burgundian" character. Also known under the name Foch.
