If you have any remaining doubt that good wine can be made in this climate,
this Marquette will change your mind. It is spectacular - also gluten free and vegan.
Marquette is the most well-known Minnesota variety and makes a beautiful dry red.
Developed at the University of Minnesota, this grape is a descendant of
the Pinot Noir varietal. This bottle is a medium bodied red with a complex flavor of bright
cherries, spice, earth and hints of leather and melon. This red finishes with
notes of smoke and oak.
