Harvest Blush Fruit Wine

Eastern Iowa boasts a collection of delicious and successful craft breweries, but it’s time our wineries got a little love. Cedar Ridge Vineyards lies just outside Iowa City in Swisher, and many of its wines — including the Harvest Blush — are available for as little as $8.99 at local vendors such as Bread Garden Market.

THE TASTE: Harvest Blush is the perfect “pink” wine if, like me, you are more of a white-wine drinker. It is made from a mix of Concord grapes and apple wine, tasting more like a sweet grape juice than a full-fledged adult beverage. Make sure to pour it into a wine glass to feel like a grownup.

ADVICE: Take a trip to Swisher to visit Cedar Ridge Winery, as long as the roads stay clear (that was a joke). Enjoy a fresh glass of its wine, whiskey, spirits, or fruit liqueur with a pizza or prime-rib dinner. Cedar Ridge also hosts live concerts at 6 p.m. Fridays if you’re up for dinner and a show.
