2007 Vidal Blanc Ice Wine 375ml
Hunt Wines' marquee wine, featured on NBC's Today Show, Vidal Blanc Ice Wine is a rare and lusciously sweet after-dinner wine with rich honey, apricot and exotic fruit flavors. This Vidal Blanc Ice Wine has been served at the United Nations, ordered by the White House and featured on NBC's Today. In the 1980s, Art and Joyce Hunt became the first producers of genuine ice wine in the United States, and it remains their marquee wine today. Hunt Wines' specially-chosen Vidal Blanc grapes are left on the vine through the normal harvest period, allowing them to develop further complexity of flavors and sweetness. If the grapes are able to survive this period through successive cycles of frost, light freezing and Indian summer, they wait for a cold front that can deliver an extended period of 10-15 degrees Fahrenheit. At that temperature, the water molecules that make up most of the grape freeze, but the rest (which provides the flavor) does not. The grapes are hand-picked at this temperature and pressed frozen to produce a trickle of golden nectar. Slow fermentation at cool temperatures yields this rare and lusciously sweet wine that bursts with honey, apricot and exotic fruit flavors. Serve well chilled on its own, or with a wide variety of desserts, as a grand finale to a fine meal. A bottle serves approximately four 3-ounce glasses.

2010 Valvin Muscat 750ml 2-Pack
The Valvin Muscat grape — a complex French-American hybrid developed at Cornell University in the 1960s — has a long and distinguished ancestry. The Muscat (or Moscato) is believed to be one of the oldest families of domesticated grapes in the world, having been cultivated in Mesopotamia and the Nile Valley as long ago as 3000 B.C. Muscat wines are prized for their fragrant floral character, and this Valvin Muscat from grapes grown on Hunt Wines' farm has a gorgeous orange blossom aroma, a hint of sweetness and a long, luxurious finish.

2010 Pinot Gris 750ml 2-Pack
Hunt Wines' dry and refreshing Pinot Gris exhibits delicate fruit flavors and crisp mineral notes. Savor a glass on its own, with smoked salmon, scallops, shrimp, mild cheeses, and light poultry and pasta dishes. The French term Pinot Gris refers to the same grape that Italians call Pinot Grigio. Pinot Grigio wines are often lighter, fruitier and occasionally sweeter than their French counterparts. Hunt Wines produce their Pinot Gris in the more austere French style, to emphasize their grapes' natural mineral and floral aromas and flavors. Savor a glass on its own, with smoked salmon, scallops, shrimp, mild cheeses, and light poultry and pasta dishes. Serve chilled.
