Harvest Hurrah

Harvest Hurrah Wine Details

Description: Made from Catawba grapes, this seasonal wine has hints of pumpkin pie spice. Enjoy sipping on the porch, watching the sunset, or toasting the harvest. Serve chilled.

Varietal Definition
This was perhaps the earliest discovered native American grape, growing wild in Ohio and New York valleys, but it has since been surpassed by the Concord as the most widely planted native East Coast grape varietal. It primarily is used to make off-dry or sweet red wines, with a pronounced foxy (a unique aroma/flavor profile variously described as wild and musky) labrusca flavor. A number of producers also utilize this grape to make sparkling wine.
