Local Product: Stingy Jack's Pumpkin Wine

Until recently, I wasn't the biggest fan of wine.  It wasn't until after I took a winery tour and enjoyed a tasting there that I found that I prefer sweeter white wines.  Once I hit upon this discovery, I'd been trolling the liquor store in search of wines that would suit my palate.  After quite a few great bottles, I hit upon this delicious elixir and have been hooked ever since.

I am talking about New Marlborough, Massachusetts' Les Trois Emme Winery's Stingy Jack's Pumpkin wine!  This was the season of all things pumpkin for me and this truly fit the bill.

Since I am a rather new "oenophile," please bear with my novice wine description haha.  This sweet fruit wine was not overly pumpkin-y (in my opinion) - it has a light and refreshing taste.  There are no heavy pumpkin pie spices, which is a perfect change from the usual heavily spiced pumpkin drinks and treats.

I have yet to try other Les Trois Emme wines, though I would like to visit their vineyard before they close up for the winter.  In that case, keep your eyes peeled for future product reviews!

  1. I agree this is one of my favorites since I tasted it at Stew Leonard's very light and refreshing.
