Check another winery visit off the list! Valley Vineyard is just over the border in Prescott, Wisconsin. Situated on a country road with an ever expanding vineyard and great tasting room.
Marquette is the latest new grape developed form the U of M. It is a descendant from the Pinot Noir. Marquette is a complex wine combining aromas of spice, cherry and blackberry, with a light oak finish. Pairs well with grilled meats.
2010 Marquette Reserve
A complex, full body, smooth wine with hints of vanilla and smoke from lengthy aging in American oak Barrels. There is spice, cherry, and blackberry flavors that leave a soft feel in the mouth.
2012 Frontenac Reserve
Solid, full body wine with a distinct cherry nose. The Frontenac carries the rich cherry and chocolate flavor notes and has been compared to Syrah. Aged in American oak to give a smoky/earthy balance. This wine pairs well with robust food, hearty pasta, grilled steak, or wild game.
This wine won a silver medal at the International Wine Competition in 2009!
Made from Frontenac grapes fermented off the skin yielding a semi-sweet, crisp, fruity wine with significant cherry coming through. It is a soft and beautiful rose color. Serve chilled for a refreshing summer glass of wine. Pairs well with appetizers, cheese, grilled foods, and pasta.
2010 Marachel Foch
Medium dry, containing berry fruit characteristics coupled with flavors of toasted wheat and a subtle oak finish. Marachel Foch pairs well with tomatoes, and other high acid dishes. So, the next time you sit down a classic dinner of marinara over pasta and find yourself out of Chianti, grab a bottle of Foch.
Razzy Dazzle Dessert Wine
Our dessert wine is made from our Marquette Rose and enhanced with natural raspberry and chocolate flavoring. Just enough sweetness to finish a nice meal. Serve well chilled.
Frontenac Port – Chocolate Lab
Made from 100% of our Frontenac grape, this is a delicious sweet fortified dessert wine. It has an abundance of jammy berry fruit and the rich flavor enhanced by the warm addition of brand and national chocolate flavor. Enjoy sipping a glass all on it’s own at the end of a great meal.
Frontenac Gris – Valley Mist
The grape is an unexpected, yet welcome mutation of the Frontenac. This wine has a delicate, yet complex taste structure with notes of apricot and tropical fruit, and has an elegant, creamy finish, restrained by a refreshing crispness that makes it very food-friendly.
This is an Elmer Swenson variety that is now grown in many local vineyards. It produces a lovely fruity semi-sweet white with hints of apricot, peach, honey, and a big pineapple finish. Pairs well with light fish, grilled white meat, salads and spicy dishes.
This is a high quality northern white grape that was developed by the U of M. A semi-sweet table wine with lots of citrus and tropical fruit flavors. Pairs well with salmon.
A blend of Brianna and St. Pepin. It is an off-dry wine with a light body. You will notice a citrisy flavor with aromas of pineapple, grapefruit and apricot. Goes well with fish, salads and light appetizers.
Our favorites were the Brianna Breeze and the Port (of course, Scott loves just about any port)
