Amistad is a bubbly celebration. The Spanish name, Amistad, and the Celtic symbol for friendship represent two proud cultures and a strong bond between the families at O'Farrell Country Vineyards and Zepeda Vineyard in Pittsburg, Texas. This wine is best when shared.
To create this dark, sweet lady, we corralled two powerful fruits -- blackberries and blueberries -- into wines. Then we blended them and put the spurs to her with some brandy. Now, she comes out of the gate with a fruity jump that builds to a smooth, warm finish and lingers with smoky chocolate notes and maybe a hit of old leather. Give her eight seconds in your mouth and taste what happens.
Our lovely black Lab, Darcy, is sweet and feisty, much like our Black Beauty wine. Blackberries and dark grapes bring rich, sweet flavors with enough tartness for a great balance. Chilled or room temperature, it's delicious with steak, hearty pasta, pizza, or some back-porch time tossing the ball to your favorite furry pal.
Blueberries from down the road in DeBerry, Texas, give this sweet red its taste. The eyes of winemaker Judy's youngest granddaughter, Cassie-Jo, give it the distinctive label. Like any good diva, this fruity treat has developed its own devoted fan base and continues to gather more.
Think fresh peach, like biting through the velvety skin. That's the flavor of this strong-minded sweet white. Chill it as cold as you want, and it will still bring a big, refreshing taste that starts with peaches from Pittsburg, Texas.
A perennial favorite. This sweet white is very aromatic, and full of flavor. It's wonderfully representative of the Carlos muscadines from which it's made, and it frequently triggers fond memories of wine or jelly making among folks familiar with bronze muscadines (or scuppernongs, as some people call them).
Sassy Sisters: Another longtime fan favorite. This blush wine is named for our winemaker Judy and her sister, Becky, who adorn the label. Judy uses a combination of Carlos and our black grapes to make this sweet blush.
Spicy but fruit-forward, floral but dry, this full-bodied red is full of contrasts that help it defy some wine conventions. Our small, dark Noble variety muscadines give this wine its color and flavor.
Like all of our Smokehouse wines, the label for Sweet Memories features an old smokehouse that winemaker Judy's grandmother once lived in. Look closely and you can see Granny Grunt standing in the doorway. A medley of our black muscadine varieties give this wine its flavor.
