Ritt’s Reserve, named after one of Lavender Crest’s owners, is a full-bodied red wine. This Chambourcin wine has a terrific nutty, fruity, violet aroma with a nice velvety dark cherry flavor. Each year a portion of our dry red is set aside and enjoys extended barrel-aging with a special blend of oak. This process enhances the wine’s unique characteristics. Like it’s namesake, Ritt’s Reserve is aged to perfection to bring out the rich berry flavor of the grape. Discriminating tasters will be delighted by a spicy aroma, which invites them to savor this luxurious wine to its long velvety finish.
Our Colona Red and Colona White wines are as intriguing as the city they are named after. Located in Henry County, Colona, Illinois became an official town in 1855. However, no one really knows how the name came about. Legends support four theories; from discovering “coal on a bank”, to the abundance of wild flowers creating “cologne” in the air, a traveler named Mr. Colona or a shortened version of the word “Colonial”. Since then, the city has embraced such visitors as Abraham Lincoln, Tom Mix and General Pershing and is called home by opera star, Tony Dillon, baseball player, Baby Doll Jackson, racing champion, Lou Fenno and last but not least, Lavender Crest Winery. Cheers!
