The long summer days and cool nights of our northern location, along with the rocky soil of our hilltop, give us the perfect conditions to produce red wine grapes. The Marquette and Farnsworth grapes that we cultivate create wines unlike any others in the world.
Marquette wines have deep cherry and brambly flavors with notes of black pepper and spice. Farnsworth wines are rich with tannins and flavors of black fruits. We pick the grapes by hand and create wines in small batches. We process the grapes with a light touch to allow the full complexity of our terroir to express itself.
After aging in oak barrels, we carefully bottle the wine, then allow further aging in the bottle to allow the wines to get a good start on reaching their full maturity. In our wine library, we have Marquette wines going back to 2008. These older vintages develop a depth of flavor that demonstrate the rewards of patience and careful aging.
