Our award winning semi-dry red blend honors Freeport, a 1700’s lumber and fishing port that was one of the first settlements in our area. This medium-bodied beauty offers a refreshing hint of sweetness with aromas of fresh berries swirling around the harmonious blend of Chambourcin, Chancellor and Noiret. Bridging the gap between sweet and dry, this versatile wine will please any palate.
