Arbor Day Farm Reds listed from dry to sweetsubject to availability
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.
Aronia Berry – Made from one of the highest antioxidant fruits in the world, this light-bodied, semi-dry red wine is made from locally grown fruit. The aronia berry is native to North America.
St. Croix – A full-bodied red wine with the aroma of plums & black cherry, St. Croix is excellent for sipping and pairs well with red meat.

Sterling White – Named for J. Sterling Morton, the founder of Arbor Day, this white wine is dry and crisp with hints of grapefruit.
Seyval Blanc – A white French hybrid varietal, this crisp version has flavors and aromas of delicate grapefruit and citrus flavor and a certain minerality that some compare to white burgundies or Chablis.
Edelweiss – A tasty addition to Arbor Day Farm’s white wine lineup, this outstanding white has a crispness similar to Riesling.
