Annually on the third Thursday in November, the first wine bottled to celebrate the new harvest is released for sale. Not all wineries produce a Nouveau, and in fact, St. James Winery is proud to be one of a select group of wineries that produces a Nouveau wine each year.

St. James Winery’s 2012 Nouveau is a lovely dry red, crafted from a select blend of Chambourcin and Rougeon grapes that were grown in the Ozark Highlands AVA. This wine is bursting with flavors of red cherries and fresh raspberries, with underlying notes of cocoa.

A light and fruity wine with low residual sugar, 2012 Nouveau will be a wonderful addition to your Thanksgiving dinner table when paired it with turkey and all the trimmings.

Because Nouveau is made to be enjoyed while it is young, now’s the time to buy it, drink it, and enjoy it.

The holiday season is right around the corner, and the extra-festive atmosphere at St. James Winery can be attributed to the release of their newest seasonal wine: St. James Winery Cranberry Wine.

Available in limited quantities and for a limited time only, St. James Winery’s Cranberry Wine is made from real fruit that results in a wine that’s sweet and tart. It’s a bright, festive cranberry color and bursting with authentic cranberry aromas, and taste. This wine offers fresh cranberry acidity with a nice long finish.

“Andrew Meggitt and his staff have made St. James Winery’s fruit wines the most awarded fruit wines in the US, so we were confident they would deliver a fruit wine that looks like cranberries, smells like cranberries, and most importantly tastes like cranberries,” said Peter Hofherr, CEO of St. James Winery.

“This will be an excellent wine choice to complement your holiday turkey or a big slice of cheesecake, and like all of our fruit wines, it’s a great mixer for wine cocktails,” Hofherr continued. “Think Cranberry Wine Cosmopolitan or Cape Cod. And if you want ideas, visit stjameswinery.com for a wide variety of cranberry wine cocktails, sangrias, and mulled wines, or in recipes for main dishes and desserts. But, because this is a seasonal offering, it’s available only for a limited time. When it’s gone, it’s gone.”

St. James Winery Cranberry Wine will be available for sale online, in the winery Tasting Room, and where ever St. James Wines are sold around the United States. St. James Winery, the largest and most awarded winery in Missouri, has been making exceptional wines for more than 40 years. Learn more about St. James Winery at stjameswinery.com.
