About

These Portuguese style grapes were grown in the Sierra Foothills in Amador County. Dulce Rojo is a rich and bold dessert wine bottled by Creswood Monarch, LLC. The grapes are Certified Portuguese style grapes cultivated to enhance the sugar and alcohol content. Wines produced with other than grapes grown in Portugal cannot be called "Port" thus "Portuguese style" best defines Batia Vineyards Dulce Rojo. Certified organically grown and fortified with three-year-old barrel-aged brandy, carefully blended and barrel-aged for five years, the flavors are in perfect balance and this Ruby dessert wine is unsurpassed by any other California Vinters. Dulce Rojo pairs impeccably with any dessert and is just as satisfying sipped on its own.
