Tasting Notes: Steve crafted this grape into a sweet white wine with intense floral aromatics and bursting citrus flavors that range from grapefruit to pineapple. Brianna will transport you to a sunny afternoon that starts with a fragrant breeze filled with possibilities and finishes with a refreshing acidity.
Pairing: Pairs well with salty foods such as popcorn, pretzels, potato chips and French fries; or crisp foods such as a green salad with a vinaigrette dressing.
A maverick in the Wisconsin wine industry, Steve, our winemaker, did it again. Crafting a new wine from a grape called Brianna. This is the first time we have used this grape varietal which was grown on the rolling hills of southwest Wisconsin.
The Brianna grape was a little known white grape created in the 1980s by Elmer Swenson. Mostly used as a blending grape, Steve decided to celebrate this grapes aromatic characteristic and craft a wine made only with the Brianna grape.
“A glass full of flower petals” will be your first impression of this delicious wine. Brianna’s intense aromas and flavors originate from its European Muscat parentage and has many sommeliers intrigued by its interesting and unique floral, citrusy, and tropical expressions.
