Winemaker's Notes:

Elegantly fruity aromas of papaya, peach custard, and honey with a fruity light-to-medium body and a long, juicy apricot sorbet, green apple skin, and a tart citrus finish. Fantastically balanced and utterly delicious, this wine is a super refreshing and fruity, crowd pleasing sipper.

Mariano Meconi was born in village of Faleria, Italy in 1895. At the age of 13, Mariano emigrated from Italy to Windsor, Ontario Canada. As a young man, after school Mariano worked at the Studebaker auto factory in order to supplement his preferred vocation of wine making. In 1921 at age 26, Mariano founded Border City Wine Cellars, quickly changing the name to the Meconi Wine Company. Following the repeal of Prohibition in December of 1933, Mariano moved his flourishing wine making enterprise across the river to Detroit in 1934. 1936 was the year Meconi moved the family to its present location in Paw Paw, in order to be closer to the acclaimed Lake Michigan Shore grape-growing region. With the move came a new name, The Italian Wine Company. In 1941, during World War II, Meconi strategically countered rising antifascist sentiment in the United States by switching the name of the company once again, from the Italian Wine Company, to St. Julian Winery. In the last name change of the company, Mariano Meconi humbly paid homage to the patron saint of his native village, Faleria, Italy. All Italian villages have patron saints and San Giuliano, nee St. Julian, stands as the saint that protects the village and its citizens of Faleria. For the past 88 years, the Winery now known as St. Julian Wine Co., Inc. has produced award-winning products. From the first shoots of the Michigan spring through the harvest and barrel tasting of late fall, the family tradition that has flourished transforms grapes to wine, fruit to nectar, as passion and science converge bottle after bottle, case after case.
