Hessian Red is a balanced blend of Chancellor and Chambourcin grapes, two varietals originating in Europe. These hardy vines are now widely grown across the east coast of the United States due to their ability to survive harsh winters while still producing extremely palatable wines. Benigna's Creek vineyard produces over 18 tons of the fruit annually. Although far from their homeland, these grapes present a flavor true to their European roots. As you pour yourself a glass, notice the wine cling to the edges before collecting into a deep, red pool that is bursting with notes of ripe plum and black raspberry.
