Shamong Red

Shamong Red Wine Details
Price: $7.99 per bottle

Description: A rich, sweet red table wine made from local Concord (labrusca) grapes. This was the first variety of wine produced by the Valenzano family. Its fruity homemade characteristics make this a very popular sweet wine.

Varietal Definition
This native American grape varietal (of the genus vitis labrusca) is used in making old- fashioned, "rustic" country-style red wines, often displaying what most people think of as a "grape jelly aroma." In fact, the Concord is widely used in the production of jellies and jams. This East Coast varietal produces wines that have been variously described as foxy, meaning they have a unique aroma/flavor profile variously described as wild and musky. Mogen David is perhaps the quintessential Concord wine.
