About Our Wine

 

Traditional wine making techniques, hand picked grapes, open fermentation
and oak barrel aging produce a wine reminiscent of the southern Rhone Valley.


St. Croix

Verde Vineyard's award-winning St. Croix is a medium-bodied estate bottled wine. It opens with fruit and soft tannins, transitions to a lively berry mid-palate, and has a lingering finish.

Gold — Verde Vineyards 2011 St. Croix

St. Croix is, in my opinion, the very best of the red hybrids. Giacomo Verde's St. Croix is utterly delicious. It has abundant fruit, right up front, and a luscious quality from soft tannins, but it does not lack the acidity any wine needs to go with food.
— Donald Breed, former wine writer for The Providence Journal

RED : $18 (TAX INCLUDED) : 12.5% ALCOHOL BY VOLUME

Wines are available for purchase at Verde Vineyards, Scituate Liquors, and Newport Cellars.

 

 

Cayuga White

Cayuga is a medium bodied fruit forward white wine with hints of melon, citrus and peach; flavors which are enjoyed through a long finish. The bright acidity makes it a perfect accompaniment to bolder foods that would be traditionally paired with a white wine.

Try Cayuga with a cheddar, roasted poultry, grilled fish and Thai dishes, or simply enjoy a glass with friends. Developed by Cornell University in the 1970's, Cayuga has a complex ancestry that includes Zinfandel along with American grapes. Serve slightly chilled.

Bianco d'Amelia 

Bianco d'Amelia is a dry, white wine reminiscent of a Riesling with aromas of apricot, peach, citrus and pineapple. It  is made entirely from the La Crescent grape developed by the University of Minnesota in 2002. Amelia's White is named for the mother of the vintner, Giacomo Verde.

Bianco d'Amelia's structure and balance make it enjoyable with food or on its own. It pairs well with fresh cheeses and the delicate flavors of seafood. Serve slightly chilled.

Surveyor

Surveyor is named after the vintner's father, Nicholas Verde, surveyor of many land tracts in Rhode Island, including the land upon which the vineyard is now located.
