In the 1980s, several prominent experts declared that the Finger Lakes terroir (our soil, climate, terrain and other factors) would never produce a good red wine. Well, let's call it the 30-year overnight success! Here we are, with a variety of reds that we think you'll enjoy.
Our approach at Keuka Spring has been to adapt our growing and winemaking processes to be harmonious with the natural proclivities of our red grape varieties. Several years ago we shifted our fermentation of our red wines from oak barrels to tanks. The results are reds with softer tannins and a rounder mouthfeel that we believe beautifully balance the wines' natural fruit aromas and flavors. We're delighted that our customers have embraced this change!
A rich, classic Merlot. Dry, smooth, soft, and mellow, with depth and black cherry and plum tones. Enjoy with pasta, red meat, chicken cacciatore, and steaks.
One of our best-selling and favored wines. Dry, soft, deeply-hued and full-bodied, this is a blend based on classic Bordeaux varietals.
Our exotic Saperavi is dark, rich and alluring. The Saperavi grape originated in the Eastern European country of Georgia. Deep in color, with bright berry and spice notes, medium body and soft tannins, it particularly complements beef and lamb dishes, and tarter cheeses like chèvre.
This wine is dry and smooth, with hints of cherries, soft tannins and a little light pepperiness in the finish.
Epic Reserve is a rich blend of Finger Lakes Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Blaufrankisch (Lemberger). Enjoy this wine of distinction and depth with juicy meats like steaks, pork roasts, or chops, pasta with white or red sauces, and other hearty dishes.
Enjoy an earthy nose with wonderful smooth black cherry and pomegranate tones.
Savor this smooth, off-dry red wine with rich plum and cherry flavors that dance in your mouth.
