Twin Towers Red (red cap) This red wine is dry but fruity, lightly oaked, and made from locally grown Leon Millot grapes. Its label features the Indiana Cotton Mill in nearby Cannelton, IN. This sandstone structure was Perry County’s first National Historic Landmark.
Twin Towers Red (silver cap) Almost Gone! Hungarian oak gives this wine depth and compliments the berry notes of the DeChaunac grapes. We believe this is one of best in recent years!
Prime 23 (cream cap 2015 harvest, black cap 2016 harvest, gold cap 2017 harvest) Dry, fruity, spicy, oaked, and made from locally grown Leon Millot, Foch and Villard grapes. "Prime 23" refers to the Celtic cross carved for Blue Heron Vineyards by local artist Greg Harris. The sandstone cross was carved using multiples of the prime number 23, was built in 23 months and leans approximately 23 degrees.
Dry Vidal (green bottle / cream cap) The 2018 harvest proved to be a great one for Vidal. This Indiana-grown grape produced a dry, but smooth wine boasting mango notes. So far, our dry and our sweeter palette customers have enjoyed it!
Semi-Medium Dry Wines
23 Degrees (gold cap 2017 harvest) From Indiana grown Villard Noir and Leon MIllot grapes, this medium-dry red wine with overtones of plum features a slightly sweeter start than the Prime 23 mentioned above. Its title refers to the lean of the Celtic cross rock- which is amazingly close to the lean of the axis of the earth…23 degrees…coincidence? We think not!
Prime 23 (gold cap) Medium-dry, fruity and oaked, the 2015 version is from Perry County grown Leon Millot, Foch and Frontenac grapes. This utilizes the same "Prime 23" label as above as it has similar fruity characteristics, but not as dry.
Hoosier Red Rose This is the signature label of the Hoosier Wine Trail. The current version of this Indiana-grown Chambourcin grape is light and drier than usual.
On Deck White (green cap) Made from Indiana's signature grape, Traminette, this white wine has a floral bouquet and grapefruit finish. Delicious!
Sweet Wines (but not too sweet!)
On Deck Red (blue capsule) This red wine is made from local American grapes blended with Leon Millot, and has been sweetened and balanced to satisfy the palettes of so many of our local customers. When combined with chocolate, this wine reminds us of chocolate covered cherries!
On Deck Red (black capsule) The "black cap" version is a concord blend, aged in a used wiskey barrel, achieving several layers starting with the nose and ending with a wonderful aftertaste.
On Deck White (teal cap- Cayuga and Niagra blend) Also made from local American varietal grapes, this white wine is light and refreshing with the sweetness of honeysuckle and a slightly dry finish. This wine if perfect for a summer afternoon “on our decks” or blended as a spritzer!
Four Blue Stars (Blueberry) Our Blueberry wine is named after our three children and son-in-law who serve in the military. We are proud of this well-balanced wine made from locally grown white grapes and blended with natural blueberry juices.
Constitution- (Cherry) This Cherry Wine utilizes tart pie cherry juices blended with our white wine. The result has been a light, sweeter wine with an almond-like finish.
