St. Francis Dessert Wine Port

St. Francis Dessert Wine (Port) Wine Details

Description: Oh so rich! Made from a blend of our Foch, Leon and Chambourcin grapes in a port style. Just the thing to sip on or drink with dessert - wonderful with chocolate!

Varietal Definition
A french-american hybrid used to make red wines with fruity flavors and some herbaceousness. Grown in the cooler regions of Eastern U.S. and Canada. Decreasing acreages also found in Europe; due to stringent European Union rules these varieties cannot be blended with traditional varieties.
Marechal Foch:
A french-american hybrid grape, with french Alsace Gamay origins, noted for producing deeply colored and strongly varietal wines considered by some to have a "Burgundian" character. Also known under the name Foch.
Leon Millot:
Early french-american hybrid grape very similar to Marechal Foch.
