|Marilynn Pinner pouring Backporch Peach wine, Island Grove|
Wine Company, at Florida Blueberry Festival Brooksville, Fla.
According to my pourer Marilynn Pinner, the sweeter styles were very popular with Festival wine drinkers especially the Backporch Peach and Blueberry Moscato.
But my favorites were the Sorta Dry and Kinda Sweet labels made out of Florida grown blueberries. Both were red wine styles and both were surprisingly complex.
Fortunately, you do not need to go to Hawthorne, Florida, to buy these wines because they are sold at many retail stores in Florida. Just go to their site to find out more details http://www.islandgrovewinecompany.com/scripts/supplier2.cfm?type=
