They offer blackberry, blueberry, raspberry, and strawberry rhubarb table wines for under $20 per 750 ml bottle, along with fortified blackberry, blueberry, raspberry, and strawberry dessert wines for under $30 per 375 ml bottle. Each bottle of wine contains about 2 to 3 pounds of berries, creating a very full-bodied blackberry and blueberry wines that are often mistaken for grape wine. The strawberry and raspberry wines are aromatic and playful.
