Arbor Day Farm Reds listed from dry to sweet
De Chaunac – This French hybrid is a dry, red varietal wine and an example of Nebraska wine at its best. Once considered one of the seven noble grapes, this full-bodied wine has a wonderful bouquet and is a natural for the red wine connoisseur. Best served at room temperature.
Chambourcin – Attention to detail paid off with this wonderful red, semi-dry French American hybrid varietal wine. The leaves around each cluster are removed, letting the grapes bask in the sun. The result? A perfectly ripened fruit that produces an excellent wine. The fruity characteristics and beautiful color make this a standout among other red wines. Best served at room temperature. Past bronze medal winner in the Mid-American Wine Competition.
Morton Oak – This medium-bodied, lively red has hints of deep cherry and plum with accents of spice. A good choice for entertaining and pairs well with grilled entrees.

Arbor Day Farm White Wines listed from dry to sweet
Porter’s Pride – This medium-bodied white features a blend of Vignoles, Seyval Blanc and Edelweiss grapes and is bursting with flavors of pineapple, pear and green apple. The name is a nod to former orchard owner Morton Porter and his 1935 Triple Crown Winner, Omaha, who spent his retirement years on Arbor Day Farm.
Edelweiss – The newest addition to Arbor Day Farm’s white wine lineup, this outstanding white has a crispness similar to Riesling.
Vignoles – A semi-sweet French hybrid with pinot noir in its parentage, Vignoles features hints of pear and apricots and pairs nicely with cheese and fruits.

LaCrosse – This grape is the result of one of the premier grape breeders in the country, Elmer Swenson. Elmer was a retired dairy farmer from Wisconsin who started breeding grapes in his 80s, and LaCrosse is one of his many developments. This semi-sweet white varietal wine has wonderful fruity overtones. Best served slightly chilled. Past silver medal winner in the Mid-American Wine Competition.
LaCrescent – Hints of apricot, peach, citrus and pineapple can be found in this aromatic and semi-sweet white wine.
