Catawba White – Waldensian Heritage Winery

Our wine tonight is the Catawba White from Waldensian Heritage Winery. A light pink wine with a soft fruity nose and crisp complex flavor notes of exotic fruits.

The Waldensian people have long produced wines and their traditional wine making techniques have passed through centuries of generations. The Waldensian movement originated in the twelfth century and the Waldensian people have been long persecuted in Europe as their teachings were in conflict with the traditional Catholic Church. The North Carolina settlement in Valdese arrived in the late 18th century. Waldensian Heritage Winery is “legally” the third oldest winery in North Carolina. However, these traditional wines have been produced in Valdese for generations.
