Comments Off on Chuckle Berry Jam

Created under the same premise as our Chuckle Berry wine, Chuckle Berry Jam is made using a blend of our year’s end fruit, knowing that each year, it could be a little different than the last.

Our newest jam is packed full of raspberries, strawberries, and blackberries; complimented with lime zest and fresh squeezed lime juice. It’s the perfect way to taste spring.

Comments Off on Prairie Berry Winery Wins 13 Awards at the 2018 Florida State Fair International Wine & Grape Juice Competition

We are proud to announce our most recent award-winning wines from the 2018 Florida State Fair International Wine & Grape Juice Competition. This year marks the 30th Annual Florida State Fair International Wine Competition. Professional judges evaluate wines and juices from around the country and the world. Thirteen of our entries received awards, including a double gold for LaCrescent, a gold for Razzy Apple, five silver awards, and 6 bronze medals.

LaCrescent received the highest award in its class with a double gold medal. Made from the winemaker Sandi Vojta’s favorite South Dakota grape, this wine brings flavors of fresh pineapple, honeysuckle, and lemongrass with hint of lemon zest on the finish.

The first wine we commercially produced, Razzy Apple, won a gold medal. This semi-sweet wine offers notes of ripe red raspberries and raspberry-apple cider with a Honeycrisp apple finish.

Silver medals were awarded to Calamity Jane, Lawrence Elk, Anna Pesä Meritage 2015, Red Ass Rhubarb, and Anna Pesä Chenin Blanc 2017. Anna Pesä Blaufränkisch, Anna Pesä Ruzo Rosé 2017, Raspberry Honeywine, Uncle Ralph’s Rhubarb, Strawberry Fusion, and Pomegranate Fusion brought home bronze medals from the competition.

Comments Off on Prairie Berry Winery Wines Announces Awards from 2018 San Francisco Chronicle Wine Competition

We are proud to announce our most recent award-winning wines from the prestigious 2018 San Francisco Chronicle Wine Competition, the largest wine competition of American wines in the world. Six of our entries received awards: Calamity Jane, Raspberry Honeywine, Uncle Ralph’s Rhubarb, Anna Pesä Meritage 2015, Wild Bill, and Lawrence Elk.

Calamity Jane received the highest award in its class with a double gold medal. Named after the rough but gentle spirited Wild West legend, Calamity Jane, this 100% Concord grape wine is soft and not too sweet. Luscious, fresh Concord grape flavors lead to undertones of candied apple and orange zest.

Semi-sweet Uncle Ralph’s Rhubarb captured a silver medal, as did Raspberry Honeywine. Anna Pesä Meritage 2015, Wild Bill, and Lawrence Elk brought home bronze medals from the competition, which featured 6,960 entries from 35 states. This brings our total to 971 awards since we began entering competitions in 2001.
