Crooked Creek Barn Dance

Crooked Creek Winery Barn Dance • A Concord blend made with Norton and Chambourcin grapes, Barn Dance has been a mainstay at Crooked Creek since it opened five years ago. It’s always one of the winery’s top sellers along with Easy Red, another sweet wine. A sweet dessert wine that has complexity from the blend, it would work great in place of an after-dinner port wine. Barn Dance pairs well with chocolate.
