Doukenie

Doukenie Wine Details
Price: $14.00 per bottle

Description: This is our award-winning tribute to "The Duchess", Doukenie Bacos, the matriach of Windham. She was known as a woman of indomitable courage, strength and spirit. "Nana" entered the American shores alone, as a young girl at the age of 15 from her native Greece. Her life story can be found in the annals of Ellis Island history where she was interviewed and filmed some years ago as well. Jasmine, rose petal perfume and ripe pear characteristics flow from the glass in both aromatic and liquid form. This Traminette based wine with a small amount of Pinot Gris and Vidal is slightly sweet with a solid, crisp finish allowing it to stand alone or be paired with light fare.

Varietal Definition
Traminette:
'Traminette' is a late mid-season white wine grape which produces wine with pronounced varietal character likened to one of its parents, 'Gew├╝rztraminer'. 'Traminette' is distinguished by its superior wine quality combined with good productivity, partial resistance to several fungal diseases, and cold hardiness superior to its acclaimed parent, 'Gew├╝rztraminer'.
