The second in our flagship family of wines from Door 44. If you enjoyed Parallel 44’s Rosso, Red Door is a close comparison with its red fruit and black cherry flavors! Red Door was crafted in a style that highlights the grapes’ fruitiness, making it a light bodied, easy drinking, and food friendly wine.
Red Door is made from the Marechal Foch grape, a cold hardy grape varietal grown in the vineyards of Parallel 44 (although this wine is not all from our vineyard). Marechal Foch was one of the first grapes planted at Parallel 44 in 2007. A more modern way of red winemaking is used that utilizes a slower, cooler stainless steel fermentation so that the fruit flavors of the grape ends up in your glass.
Through the Red Door, you will step from wine developed in the Old World France to the New World wine style of Wisconsin. Its versatility is reflected in styles ranging anywhere from a traditional earthy Burgundy to a more modern Beaujolais.
This easy drinking dry red has earthy undertones with flavors of black cherries and a smooth finish. This wine is meant for everyday drinking and pairs well with foods such as burgers, brats, pizza, and pasta. Red Door is also a must when you grill; drink it with everything from steak to chicken kabobs! It is a perfect complement to every day dishes such as pasta with red sauces, pizza, and burgers. This wine is the perfect wine to have on hand when guests stop in as it is sure to please both the dry and the sweet wine drinker.
