Anna Pesä Grüener Veltliner 2018

Story

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. Grüener Veltliner is a native grape of Austria and is also grown in Moravia. This is one of the grapes Anna used in making her family’s wine before moving to the United States. This is Prairie Berry’s first bottling of this grape.

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