CHARDONNAY: This wine pays homage to the work of our nation’s only Federalist Party president and inspiration for the U.S. Constitution – John Adams. A believer in enlightenment, we carry his mission forward with our wines – exposing drinkers to the rich flavors, ripe fruits, and bright acidity of Russian River Valley chardonnay.
RED BLEND: On July 11, 1804 off the Hudson shore at Weehawken, the original Federalist, Alexander Hamilton was shot in a duel by Aaron Burr and died from his injuries. Since dueling is no longer socially acceptable, we suggest solving differences over a glass of this “dual” of zinfandel and syrah. This wine exhibits bright cherry jam aromas, with big fruit flavors enhanced by hints of spice and lively acidity.
ZINFANDEL: The roots of Zinfandel began to take hold in the United States just as the Federalists were establishing our nation’s independence. The Federalist’s vineyards are located in Sonoma County, California where they produce single vineyard and estate wines with a focus on Zinfandel. This Dry Creek Valley estate-grown Federalist Zinfandel is an ode to this noble grape, and a celebration of its decidedly American origin.
