Pheasant Reserve


Pheasant ReserveThe Chinese ring-necked pheasant was introduced here in 1898 and was adopted as the South Dakota state bird in 1943. That type of cultural synthesis is reflected by this wine.

Sandi has blended wild, native chokecherries with the fruity, European Merlot, and created something that says, “I’m a South Dakotan!” … with a slight French accent.
