Discover Our Wines
Here at Grande River Vineyards we make wines in traditional styles using only the finest Grand Valley grown grapes. Our whites are dry and fermented both in stainless steel to showcase the exceptional fruit flavors, and in oak barrels for just the right amount of flavor. Our reds are both Bordeaux and Rhone varietals made in a dry style to showcase the fruit, the terroir, the oak aging and the art of producing award winning wines.
2016 Sauvignon Blanc
A well balanced dry, crisp and refreshing white wine that offers notes of grapefruit and citrus flavors with a slight mineral character on the finish.
2015 Meritage White
A white blend of Bordeaux varieties of Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon, fermented and aged in oak barrels for 9 months. Pale straw yellow color. Aromas of spicy pear tart, and pineapple cake; with medium body, and a tart yet lightly astringent citrus accented finish. A nice dry table wine.
2016 Cabernet Franc
This is a fruit forward wine with aromas of red berries. Medium bodied, the palate has smoky cedar notes with plum fruit on the finish.
This barrel aged Chardonnay is a lovely pale straw color. Flavors of light citrus and tropical fruit balance the oak, and vanilla on the palate.
