Our second winery stop following the Sweet Corn Festival was Caesar Creek Vineyards. We had been here before on a blustery November day seeking refuge from the cold during one of our son’s band competitions.
Another dog friendly winery, Bushmaster got to greet three more winery dogs.
We tasted all the wines they had to offer:
- 2013 Noiret
- 2013 Caesar’s Rose – a blend of Frontenac, Frontenac Gris, Cayuga, and Marechal Foch
- 2013 Frontenac
- 2013 Chardonel
- 2012 Caesar’s White – Seyval
- 2013 Seyval
- 2013 Skipping Stone – semi dry Cayuga
- 2013 Traminette
- 2013 Creek Stomper – 100% Cayuga
- 2012 Just Peachy – Cayuga with artificial peach flavoring
- 2013 Headwaters White – a blend of California Chardonnay and Frontenac Gris
- 2013 Miss Petunia Pie – a dessert blend of Traminette and Frontenac Gris
Bushmaster and I both agreed that the Caesar’s White was a hit.
Their Just Peachy was not one of their better wines and was priced accordingly. They warned us prior to our tasting it. While it was a miss on the peach flavor, it actually would make for a very nice base for Sangria. I wish we had discovered this one earlier in the summer.
As before, Miss Petunia Pie, did not disappoint. It’s hard to resist a wine with a Shih Tzu on the label, and when it is oh so tasty, even more so. It is truly a very special dessert wine.
Even the fly agreed! He dove right in and valiantly fought off all our attempts to save him!
