View Full Version : A change of opinion regarding Ill. wines
Damn! I lost the whole post and I don't want to retype the whole thing, but I want to start a discussion.
Have any of our Ill. residents tried the offerings from Lavender Crest Winery in Colona?
I'm very favorably impressed with Ritt's Reserve and Miche Sepi.
Ah, Colona, Il..in my old area, but I am unfamiliar with the winery. We have a nice wineshop in town that stocks IL produced wines so I will have to take a look. Most often, those wines are sold locally. Did you find them outside the QC area?
This is their website:
Cabernet Sauvignon, Marechal Foch and De Chanauc......not very familiar with the last two.
Chambourcin.....again, not real familiar with this variety.
A little surprised not to see Norton grapes....also known as Cynthiana....a very common midwest & eastern variety.
It is good they have found grapes that are relatively unique and successful for that area.
The whites are typical of midwestern wineries....Vignoles and Seyval.
