Our Pink Catawba bottles will be 20% off through September. This semi-sweet blush wine is full of tart grapey flavor. Our Pink Catawba is mostly a Catawba grape from the Finger Lakes region of New York. We add Chambourcin wine to the mix to add just a bit spice to the wine. Winemaker Denny recommend pairing with Gouda, cantaloupe, and prosciutto or even a chicken salad with grapes and pecans. I recommend pairing with either a raspberry vinaigrette salad with pecans and Asiago cheese or a raspberry vinaigrette BBQ sauce over pulled pork and slaw.
Fun Fact: The name Catawba(kuh-TAH-buh) comes from the river in the Carolinas where this grape was originally grown. The name of the river came from the Indigenous people(Katahba) in the area. Their name came from their location at “the fork in the river”(Katapu) in their native language, Souian. That word is a loan from the Muskeegan language meaning “separate.”
