Notes

Winemaker's Notes

Made from 100% St. Pepin grape, grown right here on the Wisconsin Ledge. Blue Moon is a wine that has true Wisconsin roots in that the grapes used in this wine were developed by the pioneer of cold climate viticulture, Elmer Swenson from Osceola, Wisconsin in 1983. 
 
This Wisconsin farmer was a self-taught grape breeder who is responsible for the grape varieties capable of being grown here in Wisconsin and the Upper Midwest. He realized that the wild or ‘riparia’ vines growing around the countryside here in Wisconsin for hundreds of years could survive our -30 degree temperatures. He also realized that if he crossed these species of grapes with the vinifera species of grapes grown in California and Europe, he could create world-class grape varieties that are perfectly suited for our climate. 
 

Tasting Notes

Semi-dry, soft, approachable, balanced. Serve chilled. A perfect compliment with salads and fish but also very good on its own.
