Our sister company, Grand Canyon Wine Company, has released new wines and we can’t wait to tell you all about them! If you’ve never heard of Grand Canyon Wine Company, it’s the perfect time to get acquainted with the wine side of our company and expand your palate to try some incredible Arizona wine.
GCW, founded in 2012, has actually been around since before Historic Brewing Company and began as a way to showcase the unique terroir of Arizona and the variety of wines that are made in our great state. Grand Canyon Wine Company makes it own wine and also has a Tasting Room in Williams that features their own brand and a select number of other wineries from throughout the state. They want to show off the best of the best when it comes to Arizona wine and have some fun within the wine industry. They make amazing wine, with something for everyone, and their brand appeals to both travelers and locals alike.
This year they have released a brand new Chardonnay, a GSM blend, and a Cabernet Sauvignon which are not only available in their Tasting Room, but also online, and at our very own Historic Barrel + Bottle House in Downtown Flagstaff. Now a little bit about the new wines:
-The Switchback: A Stainless Steel aged Chardonnay with bright floral on the nose and flavor notes of apple, a hint of lemon, and a soft butter finish. Light in body and acidity.
-The Traveler Red: An earthy, spicy GSM red blend with flavor notes of dark, jammy fruit, allspice, and a slight vanilla finish. Medium bodied and balanced in tannins and acidity.
-The Voyager: Our Cabernet Sauvignon with notes of hatch green chili, dark cherries, and creamy oak. Medium bodied and medium tannins, light acidity.
If these descriptions intrigued you or you’ve been wanting to try more of what the local Arizona alcohol industry has to offer, we encourage to come try these wines for yourself. Grand Canyon Wine Company is passionate about producing approachable wines for any adventure for those new to wine and those who have been exploring wine for many years. They are down to earth in their approach to wine and much like Historic Brewing Company they create a great quality product that they stand behind.
