This wine is made from 100% Bainbridge Island raspberries, grown by our next-door-neighbor Akio Suyematsu at the Day Road Farm. It's somewhat like a port, somewhat like a liqueur. Unfortunately we cannot use either of these terms on the label, so it's called simply a dessert wine.

The name "Frambelle" is our own mishmosh of the French words for raspberry (framboise) and beautiful (belle).

We release it annually at our Valentine's Day open weekend.

We're using an unusual square bottle (see right). Click for a closeup of the complete label.

Tasting notes: You're greeted with stunning fresh raspberry aromas, and on the tongue a touch of sweetness with just enough acid to keep it lively. This wine is 19% alcohol, so be sure to sip it lightly to enjoy it to the fullest.

This label features a commissioned artwork. Please visit our page with more information about Dianne Gardner of Port Orchard who painted this lovely cluster of raspberries.
