A bottle of Rosso Della Valle wine produced by Hopewell Valley Vineyards - one of many New Jersey wineries

Medium-bodied with a smooth long finish and deep red color. Our vintnerÍs blend embodies sweet aromas of raisins, raspberries, and plums. Enjoy with cheese, pork, beef, roasted chicken, lamb, grilled food, and pasta. Serve at room temperature.

Vintner's Comment:

Our "Red of the Valley" is a blend of 75% Chambourcin with 25% Cabernet. It's a New Jersey red wine, with just a splash of California inside! What New Jersey "valley" are we referring to? Hopewell Valley, of course! 

Originally it was created because I wanted to make a chambourcin based wine that had a little more structure and body. At the beginning that was the case, but because of the success that we've had with fermenting our chambourcin in terms of intensity and structure, our "Red of the Valley" is actually not any more structured. Even color wise. We had years when the chambourcin had a bolder color than the Cabernet and actually at times we use it to give more structure to the cab! Imagine that! With time now, the products are close siblings to each other. Still, one is 100% Chambourcin while the other is 75%. And that 25% Cabernet adds a touch more complexity to make Rosso Della Valle a unique wine in and of itself.

    Easy drinking red

    Posted by Allen on 7th Sep 2014

    I gotta say that this blend has been blended to an easy palate perfection. Plays nice with a lot of foods, and seems to fit the bill for most any mood. Not as characteristic as Barbera, but for those looking to get better acquainted with dry red wines, this is your ticket.
