Racing Silk Red: A true American classic! Celebrating Belle Meade’s heritage of owning the oldest continuously run Racing Silks in American, this robust semi-sweet wine runs with the best.

Chardonnay: This classic Chardonnay is the perfect dinnertime white with layers of fruit and a wonderful buttery finish. Featuring a lovely floral bouquet that compliments any atmosphere and a soft, creamy quality. Our Chardonnay is the ideal guest at your next gathering.

Iroquois Red Cabernet: A traditional Cabernet Sauvignon, aged in French Oak barrels. Ripe flavors of dark fruit and pepper make it a superb red for the dinner table.

Merlot: A warm, jammy red with the potpourri of cloves and rose petals. Appeals to a wide palate range and is always a party favorite.
