Thirty-two miles downstream from Lees Ferry, the Colorado River cuts into the Redwall Formation, exposing ancient groundwater passages known as Vasey’s Paradise. A gushet of white water cascades down the limestone cliff on the right bank through a jumble of greenery, finally bubbling into the mainstream and makes for a wonderful contrast to the dryer desert environment as you float past it down the river. In 1869 Maj. John Wesley Powell named this gem in honor of his friend, noted botanist Dr. George Vasey, Curator of the U.S. National Herbarium and Botanist, USDA. Sugar Creek Vasey’s Paradise Sparkling Rosé Wine is made from the Chambourcin grape and pairs well with appetizers, roast chicken or turkey and chocolate. 1.4% Residual Sugar.
