Maple & Vine: An Ohio Original
What could be more characteristic of Northeast Ohio than grapes and maple syrup? Blend them together with an expert hand and you’ve got a world-class taste experience. Produced by Auburn Twin Oaks winery in Chagrin Falls, Maple & Vine ($29.99/375ml) is a blend of Ohio Riesling, Traminette, Vidal and Vignoles highlighted by pure maple syrup from Dome Sugarbush, Hillside Farm and the Geauga Maple Company. The result is a wine with luscious flavor of caramel apples delicately enhanced by maple. With crisp acidity, its sweetness never overpowers, making it a versatile beverage that pairs equally well with savory, rich foods like triple crème cheeses or desserts like pear tart or flan.
