New Release: Sleeping River Ice Wine

Seven Hawks is always brainstorming new wines to ferment and debut.  This past year we worked hard developing the brand new ice wine.  An ice wine is a type of dessert wine produced from grapes that have been frozen while still on the vine.  The water freezes, but the sugars do not.  Through this process the wines become very concentrated and much sweeter.  It takes a lot more grapes to yield a small amount of wine, which is why ice wines are more expensive than the average wine.

Seven Hawks is excited to announce our new release of Sleeping River Ice Wine.  It took nearly one year to finish and it has turned out even more distinctive than we had hoped.  Sleeping River is made with winter harvest Frontenac Gris grapes.  It is filled with intense fruit flavors with a soft honey finish.

To debut the wine we are having a Friday Night Wine Pairing Social on Friday, Nov. 14 from 7 p.m. – 10 p.m.  We will have $5 glass wine specials all night.  Seven Hawks is teaming up with Tansy’s on Main to serve five delicious wines that compliment each hors d’oeuvre.  The five hors d’oeuvre are:
