Anna Pesä Blaufränkisch 2016


Our award-winning Anna Pesä wines take the winemaking heritage of fifth generation winemaker Sandi Vojta back to where it began, with her great-great-grandmother, Anna Pesä. Before immigrating to the Dakota Territory in the late 1800s, Anna made traditional European wines for her family in Moravia, Czechoslovakia. Coincidentally, she left the ‘old country’ when the phylloxera epidemic was taking off throughout Europe and just before it wiped out most European vineyards.

These old world wines connect the beauty and heritage of our family’s past with the possibilities of today.
