Sweet Wines Get Their Due
Ask Scott Zoccolillo, wine director at Del Frisco’s Restaurant Group, who has over 20 years of experience (and recent drinking buddy ofOlympian Johnny Weir). ‘Our second best-selling wine by the glass is actually a sweet wine,’ he explains further. Given that we are a steakhouse, Cabernet Sauvignon is unsurprisingly our most popular wine by the glass. Secondly, Brachetto, which is a red Italian grape that is essentially a red Moscato, is our most popular selling wine. It’s a good way to introduce people to the world of wine.
- According to a fantastic recent story inEdible Jersey, his observations are still relevant today.
- According to the survey results, 45% prefer semi-sweet wines, while 36% prefer dry wines.
- The grape varietals Vidal Blanc, Seyval Blanc, and Riesling are among Zoccolillo’s favorite sweet wine grapes because they grow well in Pennsylvania’s climate.
- Winemakers will find these grapes to be hardy in the field and exciting to work with in the winery.
- In Zoccolillo’s opinion, two of the best pairings for a sweet or off-dry wine are high-acid dishes (ceviche, salad with a particularly zippy vinaigrette) and sweet desserts.
- Here’s a key piece of advice for pairing wine and dessert: It is important to ensure that the wine is sweeter than the dish, or else the wine may taste bitter.
- The most exciting and well-made sweet wines have a high level of acidity to balance out the sweetness of the wine.
“It’s extremely palate-cleansing,” he continues.
Another reason why people enjoy dessert wines so much is the sensation they get when they drink them.
Sweet wines have a reputation for being inexpensive or poorly made in some circles.
The fact that these wines can frequently be found at a more affordable price point is due to the fact that they are generally less expensive to produce.
In addition, many sweet wines are sold immediately after fermentation in order to maximize their bright pop; the fact that they do not need to be stored and aged also helps to reduce costs.
The opposite is true as well: some of the most expensive and special wines in the world are actually sweet, such as Port-style wines and Ice Wines, which are produced only when the weather conditions are favorable and are hand-picked from grapes.
In fact, these sweet wines are among the few types of white wines that benefit from aging in the bottle or barrel.
In the end, whether you prefer sweet or dry wines, the most important thing to remember is to keep tasting. According to Zoccolillo, “don’t get stuck in your rut.” “Experience something different. “You might be surprised at how well you do.”
Here are some sweet wine grape varietals that thrive in Pennsylvania:
With subtle berry and fresh fruit flavors, Catawaba has a bright, silky finish that lasts for a long time. Flowers and subtle fruity overtones characterize Catawba wines created in the “methode Champenoise” — which makes sparkling wines similar to those developed in Ohio nearly 200 years ago — and are found in many of the region’s wines. CAYUGA: These white wines are crisp and fresh, with robust notes of lemon, apple, peach, grapefruit, and lemon. Cayuga is a region in New York State. Cayuga wines are sweeter and fuller-bodied when picked later in the fall, and they begin to show flavors of ripe pineapple, honey, and a trace of foxiness as the grapes ripen.
- It is also widely produced as a garden crop in the United States.
- Delaware Wines: The tastes of candied apples, strawberries, honey, and grapefruit are prominent in Delaware wines.
- (While we’re on the subject of perfume, Delaware is highly regarded as a table grape in South Korea and Japan, mostly because of its smell.) The wines have a medium body and a strong acidity, which serves to balance out any sweetness in the blend.
- Despite the fact that the flavor of that tropical fruit is acidic and vivid, the scent is a little milder, evoking fragrant rose and ripe pear.
- When it comes to flavor, the fresher tastes — lime and lemongrass — take center stage, despite the fact that the wines have a relatively low acidity.
- The aromas and flavors of this medium-bodied white wine are reminiscent of fresh grapes and tropical fruit, with a somewhat acidic finish.
- It boasts a clean, fruity, and lengthy aftertaste.
When you open the bottle, you can expect to smell the scents of raspberry, blackberry, caramel, cinnamon, and chocolate sauce to greet you.
You may expect to find scents such as citrus, green apple (green apple juice), peach (apricot juice), mango (guava), honey (rose flower), cut green grass (cut green grass juice), and petrol in the usual tall, slim container.
With this variety, there is a lot of potential for experimentation among winemakers, since it may be produced into sparkling wine, matured in oak barrels, and blended with other grapes (often with Chardonnay).
These pink vintages have cherry tones with a hint of cinnamon in the background.
Traminette: Traminette, like its parent grape, Gewürztraminer, is a versatile and enticing grape variety.
The aroma of this cultivar is so unique that it just takes a single taste to get addicted to it.
When the wine is matured on wood, notes of orange peel, vanilla, and almond are introduced to the mix.
Vignoles: These wines, like other cold-weather whites, have a strong aromatic character.
Baked pineapple, ripe apple, and orange marmalade are some of the flavors that come to mind when it is semi-sweet.
Ice wine made from this variety is becoming increasingly popular.
Late-season The juice from Vignoles grapes is rich and honeyed, with a hint of sweetness and a backbone of acidity to keep everything in balance. The flavors of citrus, apricot, papaya, and, of course, pineapple can be found in this dessert wine, so be prepared to be surprised.
Altoona, PA Wine Selection SalesOak Spring Winery
With subtle berry and fresh fruit flavors, Catawaba has a bright, silky finish that lasts for a very long time. Flowers and subtle fruity overtones characterize Catawba wines created under the “methode Champenoise” — which makes sparkling wines similar to those produced in Ohio nearly 200 years ago. CAYUGA: These white wines are crisp and fresh, with robust notes of lemon, apple, peach, grapefruit, and lemon. Cayuga is a region in the United States. Cayuga wines are sweeter and fuller-bodied when picked later in the fall, and they begin to show flavors of ripe pineapple, honey, and a trace of foxiness as they mature in the barrel.
- A large amount of it is also produced as a garden crop in large quantities.
- Delaware: The tastes of candied apples, strawberries, honey, and grapefruit are prominent in Delaware wines.
- (While we’re on the subject of scent, Delaware is highly appreciated as a table grape in South Korea and Japan, mostly because of its perfume.) The wines have a medium body and a strong acidity, which serves to balance out any sweetness in the grapes’ juice.
- A fragrant rose and ripe pear are among the scents that come to mind when you think of that tropical fruit’s taste, which is tangy and sharp.
- Even though the wines have a relatively low acidity, fresher tastes such as lime and lemongrass come to the fore when it comes to the taste.
- Tasting flavors of fresh grapes and tropical fruit characterize this medium-bodied white, which finishes somewhat acidic.
- Pure, fruity and with a lingering finish, this wine is a pleasure to drink.
When you open the bottle, you can expect to smell the scents of raspberry, blackberry, caramel, cinnamon, and chocolate sauce to fill the air with sweetness.
Citrus, green apple, peach, apricot, mango, guava, honey, rose flower, cut green grass, and petrol are just a few of the flavors that may be found in the conventional tall, slim bottle of cologne.
Because it can be produced into sparkling wine, matured in oak barrels, and blended, this variety offers a great deal of versatility to winemakers (often with Chardonnay).
Steuben: berry aromas, as well as hints of cinnamon, may be found in these pink vintages For fans of white zinfandel/blush who are looking for something different, Steuben is a terrific alternative.
With lychee, apricot, and honey notes, it has spicy and flowery scents as well as flavors of apricot, lychee, and honey.
The Vidal Blanc grape is named after the French word for white wine, Vidal, which means white.
Aromatic notes of orange peel, vanilla, and almond are brought into the mix after being aged in wood.
Wines made from Vignoles are exceptionally fragrant, as are many other cold-weather whites.
Baked pineapple, ripe apple, and orange marmalade come to mind when the flavor is semi-sweet.
With the growing popularity of ice wines, the variety is becoming increasingly popular.
Late-season The juice from Vignoles grapes is rich and honeyed, with a hint of sweetness and a backbone of acidity to keep it all in proportion. The flavors of citrus, apricot, papaya, and, of course, pineapple can be found in this dessert wine, so be prepared to be delighted.

Our beloved Tawny Port has been reintroduced! Our port wine is produced in the traditional manner and is matured in oak barrels for a minimum of three years. We next strengthen our wine with grape spirits that have been steeped in chocolate, raisins, and coconut, imparting rich, but not excessively sweet, characteristics to the finished product. This wine is great for those chilly winter nights or for summer evenings spent relaxing on your porch. Pairs well with dark chocolate and bleu cheese, among other things.
The result is a rich, fruit-forward dessert port wine created from delicious, unaged red wine and grape spirits. Made in the typical red port style with Minnesota grapes, this port is delicious. This port is bursting at the seams with the tastes of fresh berries and a touch of cinnamon. This is a fantastic dessert wine to enjoy after a heavy dinner. It goes perfectly with milk chocolate and mild cheeses such as havarti, among other things!
A nicely balanced dessert wine with qualities that are akin to those of a “ice wine.” Made with Vidal Blanc grapes imported from New York, which happens to be the country’s most productive ice wine producing region. Smooth notes of apricot and honeysuckle are followed by sparkling notes of meyer lemon and honey at the end of the fragrance’s progression. Enjoy with a light dessert of fresh cheeses or a dish that is heavy on the honey and cinnamon. If you’ve previously had a substantial meal, try it as a lighter dessert on its own!
The following is a comprehensive list of our wine offerings. From sugar-free dry to dessert sweet, you’re sure to find a favorite among the many options. Prices may differ depending on where you are.
The Best Wine in Pennsylvania!
When we first began making wine for our friends and family more than 10 years ago, it was just as a recreational activity. The farm and the winemaking environment have provided us with a chance to refine our abilities throughout the years.

Occasionally, it takes a life-changing experience for us to recognize exactly how far we have come. One of those occasions occurred recently at the American Wine Society Conference, when we discovered that three of our wines had been recognized with honors, including one for having the finest wine in the state of Pennsylvania!
