MEET SWEET MARQUETE

Sweet Marquette is a very sweet dessert wine made from locally grown, late harvest Marquette grapes.
Named after the French Jesuit explorer Père Marquette, the grape was bred by the University of Minnesota and released for commercial planting in 2006.

In just ten years it has established itself as the best of the new red hybrids and is planted in several new vineyards around Cañon City, where it thrives. It’s a very complex hybrid, bred from grapes of six different species. It has Pinot Noir in its heritage but can survive much colder winters. It is a darker red grape with nice tannins and almost perfect, mid-level acidity.

Grape sugars are made only by the leaves and then transported to the grapes and roots. Marquette’s vigorous growth habit and thick canopy creates a very powerful engine for sugar production.

Like Foch, it breaks bud very early, but if it survives our late spring frosts it can be picked in late August to produce a dry wine or left to hang well into October, putting on an enormous volume of sucrose.

Come in noon to 5 p.m. Saturday and feed your sweet tooth at the Le Fuselier Winery, 1702 Willow St. at Highway 115 in Cañon City.

At Le Fuselier, everything is $12.95 or less… always.

 

Cabernet Franc is back

Colorado’s best grape has returned  to the Le Fuselier Winery. Two years of poor harvests put the squeeze on this fine varietal and even at $24 a bottle we sold out our last vintage more than a year ago.

But good harvests the last two years have brightened the outlook for this popular treat and we are delighted to release the first barrel of our 2015 Cab Franc at just $12.95.

Cabernet Franc is an ancient grape. It is believed to be the parent of Cabernet Sauvignon and is very similar, but Franc is milder and less edgy. With its savory bell-pepper flavors, it is a key ingredient in all fine Bordeaux wines. But Cab Franc tends to have less body and is weakly colored in France. And it isn’t much better in California where it rarely stands alone as an unblended wine.

It’s in Colorado that this pre-Roman vine has found its natural home. Our high altitude, hot summers and mild evenings - cooled by the descending mountain air - creates a full bodied, deeply colored wine of extraordinary character. If Colorado ever becomes famous as a wine producing area, Cab Franc will lead the way.

 

 
Our little suburb of Canon City was one of Colorado's best grape producing areas around the turn of the century before prohibition. We are delighted to watch the restoration of this agricultural industry.

Brookside's best grapes are Cabernet Franc, Riesling, Norton, Chancellor, Cayuga White, Foch and Viognier. And don't forget those great Canon City apples that create our Apple Crisp wine, cool, crisp and refreshing.

Canon City has been growing fine wine grapes for more than 100 years. If you haven't discovered it yet, what better time?
