  • Rockr - There are a lot of those sugar shack wineries in Ohio, Indiana, ... ... ... Noir, Noiret, and Valvin Muscat. They're hybrids of vitis vinifera and American grapes. Ravens Glenn grows at least the Noiret, which they use for their port-type wine, and they also grow vitis vinifera varieties, so I think they grow their own Pinot Noir, Cab,... Read More

  • Beringer Sparkling Red Moscato NV

    Snoothrank:

  • Tisdale Moscato NV

    Snoothrank:

    I bought this on a whim because the local grocery store has it at 3/$10 and found it to be quite the happy surprise. I'm a sweet wine drinker and this was sweet, fruity, and light perfect for a hot day! I really like this since some sweet wines can be thick and this is not like that at all. Definitely a go to for me. Read More
