Our Wine Selection

Our wines are made from the most fresh and ripe fruit available in this area. No concentrates are used in the production of our wines.

Our wines are also available at the retail locations listed here.

We are working on several new varieties, please stop by and give us your opinion.  Although the new varieties are not for sale, we like to have customers try them to let us know if they are worth pursuing.

The amount and varieties of wine, however, depend on the year and the availability of fruit. Any one year may see some fruits being more plentiful than others.
