We are excited to announce the long awaited arrival of a brand new wine; Wollersheim St. Pepin.
Made from the highly acclaimed cold climate American hybrid varietal St. Pepin, from which the wine is named, the estate-grown dry white wine has notes of minerals, chalky soil, and stone fruits. Unlike many white wines, St. Pepin is aged for 6 months in French Oak barrels within our historic limestone cellars.
With our St. Pepin wine, we wanted to showcase what a noble Wisconsin Hybrid grape this is.
“My dad and grandpa planted the vines in 1984, and ever since we have loved using it in things like our Ice Wine and Brandy Wine,” said Céline Coquard-Lenerz, our next family winemaker and the daughter of our Winemaker, Philippe Coquard. “This time, we wanted to make it in a Chardonnay style, using our Wisconsin grapes in French Oak barrels, blending our French and Wisconsin heritage.”
St. Pepin is best served with fish, white meats, and creamy dishes. At this time, St. Pepin is exclusively available at the winery in Prairie du Sac, Wisconsin.
