Chateau St Croix Winery & Vineyard:
While the harsh Wisconsin winters may not seem suitable for grape-growing, the climate and soil are surprisingly forgiving. In fact, grapes are already growing in the vineyards of Chateau St. Croix. The vineyard is home to six varieties of hybrid cold hearty grapes: St. Croix, E.S. 6-16-30, Prairie Star, Sabrevois, Frontenac, Marquette and King of the North.

While the harsh Wisconsin winters may not seem suitable for grape-growing, the climate and soil are surprisingly forgiving. In fact, grapes are already growing in the vineyards of Chateau St. Croix. The vineyard is home to six varieties of hybrid cold hearty grapes: St. Croix, E.S. 6-16-30, Prairie Star, Sabrevois, Frontenac, Marquette and King of the North. The grapes have been delicately planted on a 2 1/2-acre parcel on the 55-acre grounds of the Chateau St. Croix. Upon maturity, our crop should produce approximately 5 tons of grapes. As our winery grows, we hope to increase our vineyard to ten acres. We prune our vines several times a year and harvest the grapes in September. After we crush the grapes and start our wines. As we value our precious environment, we have chosen an electricity-free fencing method to counter the bears and deer that could potentially harm our grapes. Read less

2007 Grand reserve Chardonnay The 2005 Grand reserve Chardonnay – Our Multiple Gold Medal Winning Chardonnay is made of grapes from Paso Robles. For this bottling we selected the oldest vines which ripen slowly in this cool climate. The hand harvested grapes were barrel fermented in 75% new French oak barrels and aged for six months. It is rich with ripe apple and vanilla flavors typical of this cool region with nuances of toasty oak, buttery vanilla, and spice giving this Chardonnay weight, balance, and complexity. grapes: 100% Napa Carneros Harvest Dates: Sept 2005 varietal Composition: 99.0% Chardonnay 1.0% Riesling malolactic fermentation: none barrel aging: 6 months Sur-Lie French oak cellar Temperature: 55˚F 80% Humidity fining & Filtration: Plate and Membrane Technical Data: Sugar at Harvest: 24.0˚ Brix alcohol: 14.0% Total acid: 6.3 g/L pH: 3.49 Production: 291 cases
