Founded in 2002, Fruit Forward is an expression of our fascination with wine. Our goal is to ignite our customers with enthusiasm, spark a desire to learn and consistently deliver sensational wines at fantastic prices. Most wine drinkers try at least two new bottles of everyday wine each month. Often these bottles of wine are selected based on their price and the looks of the labels - with little or no attention to the quality of the wine in the bottles.

Would like to see more details from the winemaker...eg: varietals used. Read More

  • Limerick Lane arrived, today. Previously, I have had one Furmint, ever, and I've never had a Harslevelu.  So, I really could not say if this one definitively represents either the grapes.  I will say that this is a very good, easy-to-drink, refreshing wine.  Very light--both in body and in flavor.  Subtle fruit flavor of green apple with nice ac...
