Milk House White – Baker Buffalo Creek Vineyard

Our wine tonight is the Milk House White, a scuppernong wine from Baker Buffalo Creek Vineyard just outside of Shelby, North Carolina.

Non-vintage.

Fermented of 100% scuppernong grapes.

The state fruit of North Carolina.

Color of 24 karat gold……. just polished!

Intense musky nose, hints of honeysuckle, lemon, citrus, and butterscotch.

Distinctive sweet flavor notes of lemon, lime, honeysuckle, dandelion, green apples, bananas foster, and cheap brandy, with a long bold finish reminiscent of eating wild scuppernongs right off the vine.

Labeled as table wine (7 – 14% ABV). I’d guess close to around 10% ABV.

The scuppernong is a native Muscadine variety. The fruit is a large berry, bronze in color with amazingly thick skins. The oldest cultivated vine in the U.S.A. Is the Mother Vine, a 400 plus year old scuppernong vine in North Carolina’s Outer Banks.

Merry Berry – Baker Buffalo Creek Vineyard

Our Holiday wine tonight is the Merry Berry from Baker Buffalo Creek Vineyard.

A tart cranberry blend produced seasonally just for the Holidays. Beautiful color and a robust aroma make this North Carolina wine perfect for a family get-together.

In case you’ve yet to visit Baker Buffalo Creek Vineyard in the small farming community of Fallston, just outside of Shelby, put this one on your list. The vineyard and winery property operated as the Baker family dairy farm for 100+ years. The red barn is featured in current Hillshire Farms commercials. Our friend Will snapped the first picture below and I snapped the second of the old farmhouse which lies toward the back of the property.

Get by quickly to pick up your own bottle of this refreshing seasonal cranberry wine so you too can sip their fine wine and explore the beautiful farm.
