Keel and Curley Blueberry Semi-Dry Blueberry NV

Winemaker's Notes:

Our Semi-Dry Blueberry is 100% blueberries, no grapes added. We crush and ferment this wine on the skins to extract deep tannins from the blueberries. We bottle it young and crisp with almost no oxidation, which keeps the wine fruity and fresh with very low sulfites. Our Semi-Dry Blueberry wine has a fairly sweet start, a smooth berry taste and a dry finish.

Keel and Curley Winery was started in spring of 2003 in the kitchen of founder and owner, Joe Keel. Keel, a central Florida blueberry farmer wanted to find something to do with his end of crop blueberries. As in most produce farming, once the market price reaches a price which is lower than harvest and sale commissions, farms stop harvesting their crops. At this time in the season, there are still a lot of quality blueberries on the bushes. So Keel asked himself, “what can I do with this perfectly good fruit, to use it in a productive way and not waste it? Jellies, jams, blueberry pies? No!” Keel decided blueberry wine would be interesting to dabble with in the family farm house kitchen. He started that spring of 2003 with 10 gallons of blueberry wine. The wine came out so-so, but drinkable. So he made 10 more gallons and it got better each time. So was the beginning of a company he started with production of over 20,000 cases of quality wines that the company produces to this day. Keel and Curley Winery, produces three types of Blueberry wines, each with a very distinct taste. The first is a sweet wine, the second, a semi-dry or semi-sweet wine, and the third, a dry wine. All three wines are made from 100% blueberries. Fusion wines are wines that are fused, or blended wines. Part grape based wines, (for example, Merlot or Chardonnay) blended with fruit juices (Strawberry or Tangerine). Keel and Curley winery produces seven (7) different Fusion wines. Read less
