*Off dry red from Norton
Our very first wine! In 1997, we were the first in the state to make this nouveau style wine using traditional whole cluster fermentation, first from Foch grapes, then from Nortons. Tart and fruity, this wine is released on November 17 each year.
Off dry red from Norton
Intense flavor and substantial mouthfeel make this a good choice for pairing with richer foods. Be sure to kiss the chef!
Dry red from Norton
Bold, dark, smoky, full-bodied, aged-in-oak red that pairs well with steak and barbeque. As this wine rolls over your tongue, if you close your eyes you can almost smell the cigars and hear the blues playing.
Dry red from Chambourcin
Dark fruit flavors with a hint of oak from this opulent, yet edgy wine will delight your palette. Lighter-bodied than a Merlot, Chambourcin is Davenport's wine for the Cabernet drinker.
Off dry, sweet red from Chambourcin
Named for the noisy rooster in "A Year in Provence," Charlemagne has a totally different taste with bright, citrus and berry flavors. The off-dry is lively smooth, while the sweet version makes your tongue tingle with sweet delight.
Sweet red from Fredonia
Charlee's mom, who loved a good sweet red wine, inspired this classic, rich wine with cherry and strawberry flavors coming through. Cotton candy and bubble gum will take a back seat to Charlotte's Red to satisfy your sweet tooth.
Sweet white from Gewurztraminer
Tropical fruit and melon flavors star in this lively crisp, white wine that pairs perfectly with your Thanksgiving turkey. The label may feature a greenie-meanie monster but this wine will make fast, forever friends with your palette
*Dry red from St. Vincent
This wine sleeps in American oak barrels for up to 3 years, imparting that lovely hint of vanilla and slightly dry mouthfeel. Jammy ripe cherry notes won't overpower whatever you choose to serve with it.
*Dry, off dry, sweet white from Vidal Blanc
Aromas of pineapple and a citrus acidity make this wine a natural companion for seafood, cheese, or fruit. The dry version has slept in American oak, but like Ludmila, has awakened. The label references the Russian opera Ruslan and Ludmila by Mikhail Glinka and tells the story of a princess, an evil wizard, and a brave knight.
*Off dry, sweet red from St. Vincent
With fruitiness reminiscent of cherry and color to match, this wine hits all the right notes! Pick it to pair with chicken or pork, or serve it as a great after dinner relaxer.
*Off dry, sweet blush from Norton
This is no wimpy pink blush-- Norton grapes give up their intense color to make a garnet hued wine in two sweetness levels. Named for Greg's Grandma, Mary Davenport.
*Dry red from Norton
Lots of oak tannins and an earthy character will stand up to very rich dishes. Named for the Matrot Castle in Topeka, built by Seraphin Matrot in 1883.
*Sweet white from Melody
Lower in alcohol and with delicate floral notes, this is a perfect foil for cheese and crackers. It'll have you singing for more!
*Sweet white from Niagara
If you've had white grape juice, you'll recognize this one immediately. Evoking tropical fruit and an almost Riesling quality, it's not over the edge at all.
Dry red from Norton
*Dry red from Norton
Oaky and bold, dark and broody, this heroic wine goes well with steaks, spicy foods, and dark chocolate. The label references the Russian opera Ruslan and Ludmila by Mikhail Glinka and tells the story of a princess, an evil wizard, and a brave knight.
*Off dry, sweet blush from Chambourcin
Greg's Navy experience prompted this label, and we do enjoy pretty sunsets. Lighter than Mary's Blush, but just as flavorful, you can enjoy this wine with pasta or cheese.
Dry, off dry white from Seyval Blanc
Tart, grapefruity, lower alcohol. Good acidity to balance richer dishes; works well with cheese and crackers, too. Riesling fans will like this one.
*Dry, off dry, sweet white from Traminette
We loved the greenie-meanie label so much, we reused it for this fruity Gewurtztraminer hybrid. With citrus notes and a bright finish, it pairs well with pork, chicken, and even fish.
*Dry, off dry, sweet white from Vignoles
Of unknown parentage, Vignoles nevertheless leaves no doubt about its ripe tropical flavors and hints of Riesling aroma. Pairs with just about anything. The label honors the long Kansas history of the 137th Infantry.
*Sweet white from Niagara/Vignoles blend
Niagara and Vignoles make a very aromatic wine. WIth notes of apricot and citrus, it's bold enough to highlight spicy dishes and rich desserts. The label honors the 24th Marines who erected the flag at Iwo Jima.
This is a special occasion label used with one of our white wines to commemorate the 40th anniversary of the amazing Apollo 13 mission of April 1970. On April 17, 2010, the Kansas Cosmosphere & Space Center in Hutchinson hosted the crew and mission control heroes of Apollo 13 to celebrate "NASA's finest hour."
This label commemorates the 55th anniversary of Greg's DCHS Senior class trip to Lake Meade in 1964. Sanctioned by the school, teachers and students all had a great outing. The car is depicted in better shape than it probably was-- it was a cold chisel convertible conversion of a junk yard car!
*Sweet fortified red from Norton
Enjoy this port style wine with some dark chocolate and a log fire! It's a wonderful way to finish up a special day with that special someone.
*Sweet white from local apples
You know the saying "I like cooking with wine, sometimes I even put it in the food?" Well, this apple blend is always a perfect companion for BBQ or pork regardless of where it winds up!
*Sweet red from local blackberries
Hard to pronounce, easy to drink, we tried making wine from our own blackberries and were very pleased. Enjoy it after dinner or with dessert, and don't worry about how to say "blackerry" in Polish.
*Sweet white from local peaches
Our original peach wine, lovely alone or as a reduction over vanilla ice cream. Just be careful where you put the accent mark or you may be surprised.
*Sweet dessert white from Douglas County peaches
AKA "nitro" or "hi octane" peach, prepare to have titillated taste buds when you enjoy a small après meal glass.
*Sweet white from rhubarb
Yes, it really tastes like rhubarb. We first tasted rhubarb wine in the Amana Colonies, where it's known as Piestengel. Ours is sweet, and best served in a small glass, slightly chilled.
