MONTANA PIONEER PEAR WINE
This wine is made from pears grown in the Mission Valley. This was a limited
production run and only 20 cases were produced. We expect a new run to
be available in Spring of 2009.
The barn in the photo was built by the Dupuis family and is known as the "Dupuis" or "Pablo" barn.
This wine is a medium dry wine that is great chilled. It would be most similar
to a Chardonnay.
$14.99 Per Bottle
$135.00 Per Case (Wholesale Price)
Prior to 1862, the only white men in Montana were mountain men and
explorers. Montana's first gold strike occurred in 1862 on Grasshopper
Creek, near Bannack, which later became Montana's first territorial capital.
With this discovery, the pioneers began to flood into Montana. They came
from all walks of life, including miners, loggers, farmers, ranchers,
merchants, doctors, lawyers, etc. Pioneers brought the first pear trees to
Montana. The pear's ability to withstand the tough northern climate of
Montana, the delicate, buttery flavor and the long storage life were all
reasons the pioneers chose to bring pears on their long journey.
Montana's mountain valleys provided pears with the perfect growing
conditions; rich volcanic soil, abundant water, warm days and cool nights.
Today, pear trees can still be found on historic homesteads throughout
Montana. This wine is a tribute to the pioneers of Montana who boldly
blazed the trail before us. This wine is a medium bodied, slightly sweet wine
with amazingly rich butter flavors. This wine is best served chilled and
makes a wonderful addition to chicken and seafood meals as well as
white-sauce pasta meals.
NOTE: Our pear wine is currently sold out. We hope to have it available again in 2009.
