Our Wine List

Dessert Wines

One of three, intensely-flavored Jones dessert wines, our Raspberry Rhapsody is a tasting room favorite! This wine uses American-grown raspberries to create a sweet wine literally bursting with concentrated raspberry flavor! The process of making these fruit dessert wines is very similar to that of making red grapes. The fruit is fermented 3-5 days, then cold fermented in stainless steel for 7-9 months. This 100% fruit wine pairs well with anything chocolate and any creamy cheese.

Food Pairings:

  • Chocolate cake
  • Cheesecake/cream cheese desserts
  • Dark chocolate pots de creme/dark chocolate truffles
  • Ricotta, fresh mozzarella

If you like dessert wine, you'll love this wine!

Black currants are most often seen in the grocery store dried like a raisin. Popular in Northern Europe. The process of making this wine is similar to that of making red wine. The whole berries are fermented for 5-7 days, then cold fermented in stainless steel for 7-9 months. One of three, intensely-flavored fruit dessert wines, this 100% Connecticut-grown fruit wine is robust and full-bodied. It starts quite tart but then has a smooth, tart finish.

Food Pairings:

  • Dark chocolate desserts/dark chocolate truffles
  • Stone fruits
  • Cheesecake
  • Ice cream
  • Ricotta, fresh mozzarella

If you like Creme de Cassis, this is your wine!

Suggestion: mix 1/4 Black Currant wine with 3/4 Whimsical White to make a play on a Kir Royal.

Our Blueberry Bliss dessert wine is made from 100% Jones Family Farms and American grown blueberries. The process of making this wine is similar to that of making a red wine. The whole berries are fermented for 5-7 days, then cold fermented for 7-9 months. A smooth, sweet, and slightly tart full-bodied, intensely-blueberry dessert wine pairs especially well with a cheese course or cheesecake. This wine can also be reduced down to a syrup to put over vanilla ice cream, apple pie, cheesecake, or chocolate cake.

Food Pairings:

  • Cheesecake or other creamy desserts
  • Game meats like duck or pork
  • Ice cream
  • Fruit, especially lemon desserts
  • Cheese course (Cheddar, feta, goat cheese)

This fortified, 'port-style' wine is made from 100% Jones Family Farms vineyard fruit. The grapes are blended and fermented, then our own grape brandy is added to stop fermentation. The addition of the brandy is what makes this a fortified wine. Our Seven Generations is not aged as long as a typical port and is less sweet and lighter in body. The brandy preserves the wine, making an open bottle last out-of-sunlight for several weeks. This wine is made in the traditional Porto method and barrel aged for 2 years. Grape varietals used to craft this wine include Cabernet Franc, Merlot, Lemberger, Marquette, St. Croix, Chancellor, Corot Noir, and 100% white, natural Brandy - 100% from Jones Family Farms vineyards.

Food Pairings:

  • Dark chocolate desserts/dark chocolate truffles
  • Blue cheese, aged Cheddar, Camembert, Brie
  • Nuts (fireplace wine)
  • Cheesecake
  • Cherry desserts and other dark berry desserts

If you like Port, this is your wine!

Will be available in Jones Winery tasting room only.
