What could be better than Indiana Beer, Indiana Cider, and French Wine? This year will be even bigger than the last with a tremendous lineup at the event.
A great “merci” to our Wine sponsor:
A mix of French and Hoosier wines will be poured this year. The line up from last year sold out quickly. We will have more on hand this year to meet the demand:
- 2014 Norton Rosé (Indiana)
- This darker Rosé is made from the Norton grape grown in the Rettig Hill vineyards located in Ripley County, in Southeastern Indiana. The Norton grape is a Native American grape that is typically used to make a full bodied dry red wine. The Norton Rosé has aromas and flavors of raspberry, cherry and strawberry. The small amount of residual sugar places this wine in the off-dry to semi-dry category.
- 2009 Les Clissages d’Or Muscadet Sèvre et Maine (France)
- is from the Loire Valley and features a beautiful pale gold color with a few green highlights. On the nose, the wine offers aromas of white flowers over a mineral frame. Long and well-balanced on the palate, with very fresh aromas of white peach and pear.
- 2011 Vidal Blanc/Vignoles/Traminette (Indiana)
- This dry white wine is a blend of three grapes grown in the Rettig Hill Vineyards, located in Ripley County, in Southeastern Indiana. This wine possesses subtle aromas and flavors of apple and pear along with a mineral texture.
- 2012 Grand Rouge (Indiana)
- is a dry red wine made with Norton and Villard Noir grapes grown in the Rettig Hill vineyards located in Ripley County, in Southeastern Indiana. This wine, aged in American oak, has aromas and flavors of red, dark fruit and spice along with a smooth tannic structure.
- 2013 Chapoutier’s Belleruche Rouge (France)
- is a wine made from roughly 80% Grenache (the grape variety used primarily in Châteauneuf-du-Pape to the south) and 20% Syrah (the grape used to make the Rhône valley’s most famous red wines in Côte Rôtie, Crozes Hermitage, Hermitage, and St Joseph to the north). Its perfect balance of natural fruit flavors from the Grenache and the structure, spiciness, and gentle tannins from the Syrah make it an excellent pairing for a wide variety of dishes.
And a GREAT thank you to our two beer sponsors:
