Spoon River Red
A blend of locally-grown red grapes, ripened to maturity and aged in used bourbon barrels for 6 months to 1 year. The resultant wine has a more old-world profile, like a Burgundy or rustic Italian red.
Sweetness: Dry to Semi-dry
Compares to: Old world Pinot
Food ideas: Wild game, morels
Other ideas: really great on its own

Cherries are used in all kinds of cocktails and even a popular additive to commercial whiskeys. This is a serious fruit wine, with a great depth due to the bourbon-barrel aging.
Sweetness: Semi-Dry
Compares to: Light fruity reds
Food ideas: Ham and holiday foods, desserts
Other ideas: mix with bourbon and bitters for a nice cocktail

Honey Apple
Made with local honey and apples. This unusual co-fermentation improved the overall complexity and richness of the palate. The wine was then aged in bourbon barrels for 3-4 months prior to bottling.
Sweetness: Semi-Dry
Compares to: Off-dry Pinot Gris or Chenin blanc
Food ideas: Fruity salads, white sauces, seafood
Other ideas: great over ice

We wanted to do something a little different, blending the familiar character of the Concord grape with the tannic structure and warm vanilla flavor from bourbon barrels to create a fun, complex wine.
Sweetness: Sweet
Compares to: Red Moscato
Food ideas: desserts
Other ideas: blends well with peanut butter whiskey
