Tasting Notes:  Reliance is a seedless table grape originally from Arkansas and produced almost exclusively in America. The grapes for this wine were grown in Kentucky and produce a dry white wine that pairs well with creamy white sauces. This wine has floral elements akin to many Germanic wines and has a clean mineral finish. The flavor is dense but with none of the foxy character present in many wines made from American grapes.

    Hey April. I am working on a deal to have some wine at the Liquor Barn in Louisville. Reliance is a great winegrape. It is a realiable producer. Its great flavor has been called the “Will Rogers Grape” nobody ever tasted it that did not like it. Grows well from cuttings. A great variety… hope you can plant a few. I got mine from Double A vineyards in NY 14 years ago. D
