THREE POPULAR BOTTLES OF STONINGTON VINEYARDS WINE:
Seaport White - This award-winning wine is a customer favorite! This blend produces a refreshingly balanced, easy-drinking, off-dry wine with a fruity character. You will find it excellent with any type of food... or alone!
Triad Rose - A unique blend of three grape varieties: Cabernet Franc, Chardonnay & Vidal Blanc. This provides this vintage with rich fruit, backbone & spice which harmonize together to make this a refreshingly pleasing to complement your Summer fair.
Sheer Chardonnay - Sheer equals pure! This new barrel free style of Chardonnay allows the unmasked flavor of the noble grape to stand alone, bringing forth an uncommon wine with subtle flavors of ripe apple, mineral and yeast. Don't be afraid to be sheer!
