Our Red Wines - Colona Red

Colona Red Semi-Dry Red Table Wine Label

Description

A semi-dry blend of Merlot and locally grown Frontenac should be served at room temperature with a juicy steak, prime rib, spicy pasta or pizza. Raspberry, cherry and chocolate accents make this a wine you can enjoy on any occasion.

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!
