Hello, Wednesday! If there was ever a day that needed to end with a sweet, sweet wine, today very likely qualifies. Not a bad day, but a loooong one. Thankfully, we tasted at Horton Vineyards in Gordonsville, Virginia this weekend and walked away with 2 bottles of Sweet Concord wine that is oh so sippable.
I’m a sucker for Concord wine. I’ve had my fair share of it from Troutman Vineyards in Ohio. And to be honest, nothing compares. I don’t know if I’ll ever love another Concord the way that I love their Farmer’s Red. But that’s for another day.
The Sweet Concord from Horton’s is exactly what I expect it to be. Smooth, sweet, and a little delicate on the finish. It’s like sipping Welch’s grape juice. Plus booze.
Winning. Nope, wait, sorry. No one says that anymore.
There’s really not much else to say about this wine. If you love Concord wine, you’ll love it. If you don’t like red wine, you’ll love this one. It’s a wine drinkers guilty pleasure and a non-wine drinker’s intro the the world of grapes. And at $12 a bottle, it’s totally reasonable. Also, how cute is the label? And a super unique synthetic red cork. Love it all.
