Wine Bros is happy to announce the return of Prairie Artisan Ales to our beer portfolio! Prairie is small third wave brewery from Oklahoma. Since their founding in 2012, Prairie has brought a unique perspective to brewing, conjuring up big bold barrel aged stouts and super crisp and funky farmhouse ales. Every beer they brew is wrapped in unique, expressive, and interesting art. Named one of RateBeer’s top ten brewers in the world, the Prairie Artisan Ales experience is unlike any other you can find in beer.
VINIFICATION Hand-picked at the optimum time, the grapes are then destemmed, crushed and converted into wine through a process of careful maceration to extract their colour, tannins and aromas, enhanced by constant churning during fermentation. This takes place in stainless steel vats at a controlled temperature, between 28-30°C, until the right degree of sweetness (baumé) is achieved. At this point, grape brandy is added to create the final fortified wine. Obtained by the blending of wines of different harvests, with different levels of maturation in stainless steel and wood for a minimum of 3 years, the result is a rich and aromatic wine, with the perfect level of sweetness.
Kopke Fine Ruby Porto
A deep ruby colour, with a garnet rim. A classic bouquet, on which the liveliness of young fruit produces a delicate balance. Firm and powerful in the mouth, it shows flavours of fresh fruit and delivers a long and harmonious finish. ABV 19.5%
Kopke Fine Tawny Porto
A vivid orangey-brown colour. On the nose, it reveals aromas of ripe and honeyed fruit combined with fragrant notes of vanilla. A smooth and round palate, full of rich and enveloping flavours. ABV 19.5%
Kopke Fine White Porto
With a greenish-yellow colour, Kopke Fine White Port shows a rich and fragrant nose, on which the fresh aromas of citrus stand out. On the palate, it is smooth and velvety, with perfect acidity, and a delicious finish.
Please join us for an afternoon of Treat and Surprises! We will have new wines, new vendors, winemakes, delicious food, and maybe a couple of carnival games! (We don’t want to give everything away…. please come see for yourselves!)
