Meet the 2021 vintage of our semi-sweet chillable red blend, formerly known as Harvest Widow's Revenge!

The name is updated but inside the bottle, Harvest Nights continues to be our easy-drinking blend full of fresh berry flavors & aromas plus a touch of sweetness on the palate. It will always be the wine you know and love! 

WONDERING ABOUT THE NAME CHANGE?

The first vintage of this wine was born out of hard times. In 2011, Hurricane Irene wreaked havoc on our Vineyard. It decimated much of our yield, forcing us to blend the fruit we had together just to have enough wine to bottle and sell. It was a Hail Mary attempt to keep us afloat, but it turned out that the blend tasted awesome! We decided to make it in an unoaked, semi-sweet style, fermented and aged in stainless steel for just a few months after harvest. Appropriately named ‘In Spite of Irene’, our chillable, easy-drinking red blend was a big hit right away.

We continued making the wine, and over the years it adopted a new name: ‘Harvest Widow’s Revenge’. The idea was that it was a wine to honor the partners of the people who come out and help us harvest. The wine was, so to speak, "revenge" for the fact that these partners stayed home and held down the fort during the long days of harvest, while their spouses were out in the vines for days on end. 

For the 2020 vintage, we decided it was time for small but very important changes to the name and label. The "Widow" part perpetuated gender norms that we do not wish to reinforce. The story told by the name and label -- which featured a female silhouette in the foreground -- implied that the woman / wife was waiting at home while the man / husband was out working in the field. 

Of course, women and people of all genders are winegrowers. They work in the vines and the cellar throughout the year, as owners and winemakers, as leaders and as part of their teams. The "Widow's Revenge" idea was exclusionary -- and our team is committed to inclusiveness both in word and deed.

The new name 'Harvest Nights Red' is a true reflection of harvest time. Our team and many amazing volunteers (people of all genders) spend long days harvesting our grapes by hand, and long nights working with the fruit to begin its transformation into wine.

The blend of grapes in Harvest Nights Red has always been a bit different from year to year, depending on how the season shakes out, but we blend with a purpose to achieve a consistent flavor profile: Fruity, light, and easy-drinking with a touch of sweetness, bursting with fresh berries on the palate.

We recommend serving Harvest Nights Red chilled to keep the bright berry notes fresh & fun.
