Brianna 2018

Story

We source the grapes for our Brianna wine from Lewis & Clark Vineyard near Yankton, South Dakota, and we’ve worked with the vineyard’s owners, Greg and Muriel Stach, for many years.

Brianna grapes were developed to withstand the cold and heat that our climate throws at it. At Lewis & Clark Vineyard, the grape canes are combed or trained twice a year and are leaf-plucked around the clusters. This allows the clusters to fully bask in the sun, bringing out Brianna’s characteristic fruity flavors.

    This is one of our favorite white wines, we stock up on it every time it’s available and then watch frantically till it’s released again. Highly recommend it!!!!
