Taste of Minnesota
FIRST AND FOREMOST, A CONFESSION: Wine connoisseur and traveler, I’m jaded and suspicious about the whole thing. In the course of my employment, I’ve had the opportunity to visit some of the finest wine cellars in America’s most picturesque wine country. I’ve also experienced the rising Disneyification of these places, which includes overly structured tour packages, appointment-only tasting rooms, and party buses full of inebriated tourists who can’t seem to tell the difference between a wine tour and a bar crawl.
When I wish to visit some vineyards, I now look for the less trafficked roads: Long Island, Washington State, and a few hardscrabble areas of Oregon are among the places to visit.
That’s a positive thing in the eyes of this sceptical tourist.
Before we go on our sampling tour of our state’s tasting rooms, though, let’s get one thing straight: There is no longer any need to convey our amazement that Minnesota has a thriving wine sector.
- That’s right, they’re even manufacturing wine in Alaska these days (to pair with salmon, I presume).
- All of this gives the impression that Minnesota’s 35-year-old wine business is well-established.
- Despite the fact that they are not 90-point wines, the greatest of them have the same glimmers of promise as bottles from other wine areas during their early years; they transmit a sense of terroir —the flavor of a certain place.
- With this in mind, I devised a very reasonable one-day road trip that would take me to four vineyards that were all within 30 miles of the Twin Cities’ downtown.
- I was hoping to find this flavor of Minnesota in their tasting rooms, which were bottled and ready to drink.
- The winery was created in 1973 by David Bailly, a Francophile attorney from Minneapolis, who planted French vines on 20 acres in Hastings, Minnesota, to make wine.
- Despite the fact that Minnesota and Bordeaux are located on the same latitude, the grapes in Bordeaux had not been exposed to our sub-zero weather and shorter growing seasons.
- He was successful, and the state’s wine industry was established.
- Early in the fall morning, the light is beaming through a scattering of storm clouds and illuminating the barn-red structure, producing a landscape that is as gorgeous as our state’s wine area can be found.
It comes from Baron Philippe de Rothschild, patriarch of France’s magnificent Chateau Mouton Rothschild, and is in allusion to how much easier it is to cultivate grapes in California than it is in Bordeaux: “Great wines must go through adversity in order to acquire character.” Snow and drought are on the way.
“It must have been produced through hardship.” David Bailly agreed, and he used the following quotation as the tagline for his winery: “Where the grapes can suffer.” Nan Bailly, the late Bailly’s daughter, has been in charge of the business since his death in 1990.
Although Bailly Vineyard is best known for its fortified wines, such as the raisiny, port-like Hastings Reserve and the orange-and-spice-infused Ratafia, it also produces some of Minnesota’s best dry wines, such as the crisp, clean Seyval Blanc and my personal favorite, the Voyageur, a blend of the vineyard’s oldest and youngest vines that is as complex and balanced as a good California Merlot.
Upon entering the structure, I is struck with the vivid fragrance of fermenting grapes that is both wild and evocative.
There isn’t anything else quite like it.
Founded in 2004 by Maureen and John Maloney, who also oversee a 20-acre vineyard—largest—that Minnesota’s is located roughly a 10-minute drive from the winery.
The Maloneys produce a diverse range of wines—I counted 15 different varieties—using a method I was unaware of until I inquired about the provenance of the grapes listed on her bottles, which included varieties such as Chardonnay, Zinfandel, and Syrah, which I had previously assumed couldn’t be grown in Minnesota.
- However, certified winemakers in Minnesota are permitted to blend local grapes with fruit trucked in from California, Oregon, or anywhere else, for the purposes of making wine.
- The Maloneys take advantage of this regulation, mixing some of their wines with grapes from California to give them the depth and complexity we’re accustomed to finding in wines from places other than Minnesota’s wine region.
- I’m pleasantly pleased with the results.
- Pepin resembles Sauvignon Blanc with its herbal, grassy fragrance and tropical-fruit notes, which are reminiscent of the grape.
- juicy peach aromas, with a lengthy, grapey finish, characterize this round, somewhat sweet Sogn Blanc from the Loire Valley.
- When I arrive to Northern Vineyards Winery in downtown Stillwater after a 50-mile journey, the sun has been completely eclipsed by storm clouds, and rain is forecast for the rest of the evening.
- In terms of experiencing the diversity of Minnesotaterroir, Northern Vineyards is unquestionably the greatest location to go.
- Swenson produced many hybrids, including St.
There’s also a particularly distinctive, port-like dessert wine called Ruby Minnesota, which Partch creates by blending different vintages of Frontenac—a vine introduced by the University of Minnesota in 1996 that can withstand cold winters without being buried—with wine made from wild grapes indigenous to the St.
The fact that it is simpler to mix and blend different fruits and vintages than it is to make a single-harvest varietal wine does not surprise me.) Partch brings me into the winery to show me his big oak barrels, which he uses to ferment some of his white wines instead of the typical stainless-steel tanks.
- The Prairie Smoke dry white wine made from LaCrosse grapes is one among the barrel-fermented wines we taste in the tasting room when we return from our excursion.
- We conclude our tasting with Partch’s flagship wine, the St.
- Croix region of California.
- I take a short trip west to Saint Croix Vineyards, which first opened its doors in 1992.
- I sprint inside the century-old barn that serves as the tasting area, where I find myself among a mob of people who are planning a picnic.
Co-owner Peter Hemstad spent more than two decades breeding grapes at the University of Minnesota, and his vineyards continue to serve as a test site for new hybrids, including the company’s most recent creation, Marquette (which is still too young to produce drinkable wines in large enough quantities).
- Matthew Scott, the winery’s tasting-room manager, takes me on a tour of the winery’s 11 offerings.
- There’s the semisweet Delaware, which is created from a grape that was discovered in Ohio in the 1850s and is a distant relative of the Catawba and Niagara grapes that is no longer widely grown.
- I also enjoy the Vignoles, a French-born variety with a sharp acidity and peach notes that is a personal favorite of mine.
- Saint Croix also produces the only Minnesota rosé I’ve ever tasted, a breezy, cherry-flavored beauty made from Frontenac grapes that I much appreciated.
- My hunch is verified correct by my final taste of the day, a garnet-colored Frontenac that has been matured in American oak barrels for several years.
- It’s not the nicest glass of wine I’ve ever had, but it’s more than drinkable, and it’s a good example of how many of the wines I sampled today are.
- In addition, I had the opportunity to meet this obstinate winemaker and hear his narrative as he proudly poured me a taste of his wine.
Why? Because if Frontenac and Edelweiss wines start receiving 95 points in the Wine Spectator and limos start line up in front of Alexis Bailly, I’m packing my belongings and leaving to Alaska immediately.

Everything You Need to Know About Syrah/Shiraz
Syrah, commonly known as Shiraz, is a popular red wine produced in the United States. Despite the fact that France is the spiritual home of this red grape variety, Syrah has been successfully planted all over the world with outstanding results. Certain features stay consistent regardless of climate, soil, or regional style. Syrah is often strong and full-bodied, with aromas of smoked fruit, black fruit, and pepper spice to complement its full-bodied body. It might have a pleasant and fruity flavor, or it can be thick and tannic in texture.
Whatever the nomenclature, Syrah/Shiraz has a variety of styles to suit any palate.
What’s the difference between Shiraz and Syrah? Where does Syrah/Shiraz come from?
Syrah and Shiraz are both grapes that are grown in the same region. There is a distinction between the two because of regional expressions and climate-driven fashion patterns. Winemakers who operate in cooler-climate growing zones, both in the Old World and the New World, are more likely to refer to their wines as Syrah-based blends. The most well-known examples are found in the northern Rhône Valley of France, namely in the Hermitage and Côte-Rôtie appellations. New World Syrah wines are produced in locations such as the Sonoma Coast in California, the Yarra Valley in Australia, and sections of Chile, and are distinguished by their ability to replicate the leaner, acid-driven, savory flavors of the Old World French classics.
These wines are luscious, fruit-forward expressions of the warmer, brighter environment, and they are a perfect match for it.
What does Syrah taste like?
Syrah and Shiraz are both grapes that are grown in the same region of the country. Differences in regional expressions and climate-driven styles distinguish the two groups of artists. Many winemakers who operate in cooler-climate producing locations, both in the Old World and in the New World, choose the name Syrah to refer to their wines. Among the most well-known are those produced in France’s northernRhône Valley, particularly Hermitage and Côte-Rôtie. New World Syrah wines are produced in locations such as the Sonoma Coast in California, the Yarra Valley in Australia, and sections of Chile, and are distinguished by their ability to replicate the leaner, acid-driven, savory flavors of the Old World classics.
These wines are luscious, fruit-forward expressions of the warmer, brighter environment, and they are a perfect match for the food they serve.
What does Shiraz taste like?
Shiraz is a wine that should be sought after by those who enjoy strong, full-bodied wines. The wines are opaque and ruby-purple in color, and they have rich jammy aromas and flavors of blueberry and blackberry, as well as ripe tannins and a full mouthfeel and mouthfeel. Smoked meat elements such as beef jerky and bacon, as well as a spicy black pepper finish, are also present.
The amount of alcohol consumed (14–15.5 percent), as well as the amount of oak used and the amount of oak aging, are all greater. For benchmark examples, go no farther than the Barossa Valley.
What is the color of Syrah/Shiraz?
Shiraz is a great choice for wine enthusiasts who want strong, full-bodied wines. The wines are opaque and ruby-purple in color, and they have rich jammy aromas and flavors of blueberry and blackberry, as well as ripe tannins and a full mouthfeel with mouthwatering acidity. Smoked meat flavors such as beef jerky and bacon, as well as a spicy black pepper finish, are also prominent. A higher percentage of oak is used, and the amount of oak aging is greater (14–15.5 percent). For benchmark examples, go no further than the Barossa Valley region.
How much alcohol does a bottle of Syrah/Shiraz have?
The amount of alcohol in Syrah/Shiraz is determined by the region in which it is cultivated and the climatic conditions during the year in which it was harvested. Cooler areas, as well as wet and cold vintages, produce wines with lower alcohol content. Warmer climates, as well as dry and hot vintages, will result in higher alcohol levels. Wines from cooler locations like France, or from colder vintages, often contain 13–14 percent alcohol by volume (abv), but those cultivated in warmer climates or hotter vintages, such as those characteristic of South Australia, might have 14.5–15.5 percent alcohol by volume (abv).
Is Syrah/Shiraz sweet or dry?
Syrah and Shiraz are often prepared in dry styles, while some entry-level Shiraz may have a small amount of residual sweetness in the bottle (RS). Please keep in mind that enjoying ripe fruit tastes such as blueberries and blackberries, particularly in warm-climate Shiraz, is not owing to the presence of sugar. It is understood that a dry wine is produced after the grapes have been crushed, and in which the sugar from the grape must has been transformed into alcohol by yeast. Fully-dry wine is produced when the sugar is converted to alcohol in its entirety or almost so.
This might be intentional, such as to add a note of richness and sweetness to the wine, or it could be due to the yeast failing to complete the fermentation process properly.
How many calories and carbs does Syrah have?
Syrah is known for being dry. Of course, wine with little or no added sugar does not imply that it is also low in calories. There are calories in alcohol. Typically, a five-ounce portion of Syrah contains roughly 125 calories, with a 750ml bottle containing 625 calories per serving. Wines with greater alcohol content, such as Shiraz, have higher calorie counts per glass, with 15 percent alcohol containing around 175 calories. Shiraz can include a trace amount of RS, which raises the calorie and carbohydrate content by a modest amount, but only in small quantities.
How should I serve Syrah/Shiraz?
Syrah, like other red wines, has a preferred temperature range. Because of the greater alcohol content in Syrah/Shiraz (13.5–15.5 percent), wines should always be served with a small chill, otherwise the alcohol will taste hot and the tastes would be bland. The scents and flavors are reduced when the dish is served too cold, on the other hand. The recommended temperature range for serving Syrah/Shiraz is 60–65°F, which may be accomplished by placing the bottle in the refrigerator for 15 minutes.
If you don’t complete a bottle of Syrah, simply replace the cork and leave it back in the refrigerator to finish it later. The tastes will remain fresh for two to four days after being prepared. Any further than that, and the wine will begin to oxidize.
What foods pair best with Syrah? What about Shiraz?
Syrah from colder climes, like as France and the Sonoma Coast, has a lively acidity, mild tannins, crimson and black fruits, and earthy, smokey characteristics, and is a good match for grilled meats. These wines go nicely with a variety of foods including game, duck, mushrooms, stews, veal, and pastas with a meat ragu. Shiraz is riper and more fruit-forward than Cabernet Sauvignon. Burgers and BBQ ribs go well with this easy-to-drink, fruity Shiraz from the Australian wine region. Richer, fuller-bodied types with greater alcohol content pair well with grilled beef, lamb, and other roasted or braised meat dishes.

Port and Sherry
This differs from sherry, which is fortified after the fermentation process is complete, giving it a dry texture.There are many different styles of both ports and sherries.
There is also white port made from white grapes.Some popular types of sherry include fino, which is the driest type of sherry.
Amontillado is also aged under flor yeast, but it is later exposed to air for a darker final product. Oloroso is exposed to air for an even longer duration, resulting in a darker, richer wine.

It is a family-owned winery located on the West Shore of Flathead Lake, which is referred to as the “biggest natural freshwater lake west of the Mississippi,” in Dayton, Montana. The vineyard produces a variety of wines, including reds and whites. In fact, we were the state’s first Bonded Winery, having established our first vineyard in 1980 and producing our inaugural vintage in 1984.

Tom Campbell Jr. is the guy behind the winery, bringing over 35 years of winemaking knowledge from California and the Pacific Northwest. He followed in the footsteps of his father, Tom Sr., and earned a degree in viticulture from the highly respected University of California at Davis. He then worked as a winemaker at several different vineyards, including Jekel and Shiloh in California, Ste. Michelle and Quail Run (Covey Run) in Washington, and Jekel Vineyards in California. When he returned to Montana, he and his father established Mission Mountain Winery in 1984.

- Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Prepare a 10-inch Bundt cake pan by brushing it with oil on the edges and bottom. Combine the cinnamon, sugar, and cocoa in a small mixing dish. Make “flour” for the sides and bottom of the pan using the mixture, tapping out any excess and reincorporating it into the cinnamon mixture
- In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the cake mix, eggs, oil, sherry, nutmeg, and pudding mix until well combined. Blend until everything is well-combined. Using half of the batter, fill the Bundt pan halfway with cinnamon sugar, then cover with the remaining batter and finish with the remaining cinnamon mixture
- Remove the cake from the oven after 45 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the cake comes out clean. Allow for 10 minutes of cooling time in the pan before turning out onto a wire rack.
