Heritage Sweet Wines

Midwest’s Favorite Sweet Wines Since 1970

Heritage Sweet Wines

The Heritage Collection is a reflection of our founding story – from the Italian immigrants that established the grape growing in the area over 100 years ago to the founders of the winery, Jim and Pat Hofherr, in 1970. The large label illustrations reflect the Friendship School House and wine country images of our region.  The Friendship School House stands near our Zuppo and Frederick vineyards and was the center of the Italian Immigrants Community life. Three of the products in the collection – Velvet Red, Velvet White and Pink Catawaba – were some of the first wines introduced by the Hofherrs in 1970.
