Ruby Nouveau


Estate-Grown Dry Red Wine

Our Ruby Nouveau is Wisconsin’s version of a Beaujolais Nouveau, 
traditionally released 
the third Thursday 
in November. Our Ruby Nouveau is made from our estate-grown grapes and Winemaker Philippe follows the traditional methods of whole 
berry fermentation. The Ruby Nouveau represents the complexity and deep intense color of the 2017 vintage. It has multi-layers of fruit such as juicy sweet bing cherries with the sweet smell of red roses.

Sorry, Ruby Nouveau 2017 is no loner available online. The 2018 vintage will be available in November 2018.

Story: Ruby Nouveau is the first taste of the new harvest and a tribute to the tradition of our winemaker’s birthplace in the Beaujolais region of France. A traditional Beaujolais Nouveau is released during the same fall in which the grapes are picked, so a short fermentation makes a light, fresh and fruity wine with unique flavors such as raspberry, black cherry and banana, and a brilliant ruby-red color. Just as is custom in Beaujolais, our Ruby Nouveau is released at Wollersheim on the third Thursday in November. As part of our annual celebration, we pair Wisconsin cheeses with our Ruby Nouveau as a toast to true Wisconsin flavor!
