Six Bow Vineyard wines entered in 2012 Winemaker Magazine competition:

    We entered our four 2010 harvest varietals, our 2008 Frontenac and our 2009 blend of St Croix and Frontenac in what is the largest amateur wine makers competition in the world.  Results were announced at Winemakers Magazines annual conference which this year was held June 20-22, 2012 at Cornell University. 

 

We attended that conference and probably shouldn't have imagined coming home with any awards...See the News and Events page for our surprise!


Over forty four hundred entries in 50 wine categories were submitted from 8 European countries, Canada and all fifty US states.

Revolution in Cold Climate Winemaking! -- Cold Hardy Hybrids

At Bow Vineyard, we are growing four varieties of grapes that were developed by the University of Minnesota over the last ten or twelve years, called Cold Hardy Hybrids.  They are real breakthrough developments in that they are high quality wine grapes that are now able to withstand our cold temperatures in the northern climates.  Our four varieties  can handle 30-40 degrees below zero and live to produce excellent quality grapes and really superb wines never before possible in this climate.

Our three red grapes are Marquette, St. Croix and Frontenac and our white is Lacrescent.

These new grapes and their wines are getting rave reviews with their unique flavor components.  

This site is designed to show what we are doing with our vineyard and winemaking activities as well as to serve as a resource for those interested in learning about grape growing and winemaking.  

 

 We hope to keep the site current with news, views, activities schedules and links to valuable information for your edification and pleasure.
