VARIETAL INFORMATION: This shy-bearing Vignoles (veen' yole) grape has become the jewel of Missouri white wines. The difficult-to-grow variety achieves its richest complexities in the warm and sunny vineyards of Missouri. Our 2010 vintage was produced from a specially selected parcel of Vignoles in our Morre Vineyard and displays exceptional quality parameters. 1,440 cases produced.

TASTING INFORMATION: Vignoles (veen-yole) is Missouri’s premier white wine grape variety. This rich, full-bodied white wine displays lovely varietal aromas of pineapple, strawberry and lime. Although this wine contains a hint of sweetness, its natural vibrant acidity gives it a delightful, dry palate impression, making it the perfect wine to enjoy as an aperitif or paired with flavorful foods that might overwhelm a more delicate white.

Three Giclee prints by Michigan artist Catherine Tonning-Popowich

Because of her passion and talent for creating wildlife art, Catherine was awarded the 2013 Individual Artist Grant by the Arts Council of Greater Lansing. Through this funding, Catherine became the artist in residence at Potter Park Zoo in Lansing, Michigan. She held wildlife painting classes that were free and open to the public on-site at the zoo. Catherine also completed a series of paintings of ten of the zoo’s animals and held an exhibition of those works in the fall of 2013.

These three prints are from Catherine’s Creative Creature Collection and are mounted on durable gator board. They can be framed or displayed as they are. The lion and tortoise each measure 9 x 9 inches, the peacock 7 x 7.
