Rhubarb Wine, A Summer Hit


Rhubarb makes a delightful fruit wine.

A few years ago we visited several Tennessee wineries. One of these special wineries was Mountain Valley Winery in Pigeon Forge where we discovered a Rhubarb wine. As Terry was looking through our wine room a couple of days ago, he came across a bottle of this Rhubarb wine. After refrigerating it, we enjoyed it with tasty barbecued grilled pork, rice and a salad.

The Rhubarb wine was a dark gold color with, as might be expected aroma notes of rhubarb. The taste was authentic rhubarb. The wine was sweet and would also do well as an aperitif. Perhaps enjoying a glass of it on a deck or porch on a warm summer day. The wine reminded me of a rhubarb pie. I couldn’t help wondering if I added a frozen strawberry, if it would be more like a delicious strawberry-rhubarb pie. While enjoying the wine, Terry was strongly encouraging me to bake a strawberry-rhubarb pie. Perhaps I will later this week.

If you visit Pigeon Forge, Tennessee this summer, be sure to stop by Mountain Valley Winery and taste a few of their wines.

After our visit to the winery, we wrote an article review for Wine Trail Traveler. Check it out before you go.
