The LaCrescent grape is a cold hardy varietal with parentage in the Moscato family. This grape varietal can withstand the harsh Wisconsin winters, yet come alive again in the spring and produce world class fruit that makes award winning wines. Toted as one of the most promising cold hardy varietals by experts in the wine industry, our LaCrescent continues to win highest honors at competitions.
We source our LaCrescent from one of our contracted growers in the Western part of Wisconsin, where it is grown on hill sides that allow maximum sun exposure so it ripens to perfection. LaCrescent is an excellent representation of the world class wines grown and produced here in Wisconsin. This New World wine expresses the fruit forward expressions desired by the younger wine drinker yet offers the nuances appreciated by the connoisseur.
Created in a semi-dry style and made 100% from the LaCrescent grape. This brilliantly balanced white wine starts with a luscious, floral bouquet followed by flavors of peach, apricot, and citrus and ending with a refreshing crisp finish. Our LaCrescent is reminiscent of a drier crisp Riesling. Perfect for drinking on its own or pairs well with bold cheeses, green salads, fried fish, seafood, chicken and pasta with white sauces.
