WINE CHARACTERISTICS

The fastest growing red wine in our portfolio, which now comes with a screw cap, is a semi-dry, medium-bodied red with a brilliant ruby color. The Game Bird Red is mellow red wine with notes of ripe cherry and blackberry, with an essence of herbs. It's produced with a blend of Foch, Chambourcin, and Frontenac.

FOOD PAIRINGS

Game Bird Red is a perfect pairing for any pasta dish, especially Grandma’s homemade lasagna. Tomato Basil pizzas really bring out the soft berry qualities from the Foch and Cabernet Franc blend. Also delightful for an afternoon BBQ, especially a beer can chicken. Share the Game Bird Series and a Savory Duck Marinade & Serving Sauce recipe by Heron Hill Winery owners, John & Jo Ingle.

Although I live a long way off in Virginia my wife and I have visited the Finger Lakes a number of times and always look forward to visiting Heron Hill. Game Bird Red is one of my all time favorites and the last time we were there I bought a case. It is an excellent wine for the money. We plan to visit this year to celebrate our 54 th wedding anniversary!

My husband and I visited the Finger Lakes this past summer and were treated to a supreme tasting experience at this Winery. I love this red wine. It is so smooth and not acidic at all. The screw on top makes it easy to seal back up and make it last a few days. Great value!

I usually prefer drier reds, but this one knocks my socks off! Heron Hill will be on our permanent list visit during our annual trip to the area.

Found this red table wine at a local shop in Middletown, NY for our use with dinner that evening. It is amazingly outstanding and has become our favorite red. Heron Hill has a winner here and now we do too!
