Sweet Red, known for decades as Soft Red, is an Oliver Winery classic. Our winemaking style captures the essence of the Concord grape that makes up our most popular sweet wine. Bright acidity and balanced sweetness create a fruit-forward red full of fresh flavor.
"This is Soft Red. We make Soft Red from the Concord grape. Our winemaking style really captures the essence of the Concord grape. This wine is nicely balanced. It has a bright acidity, but also a very balanced sweetness to give you that wonderful, fresh, Concord flavor lingering on the finish, and just leaving you wanting to come back for more."
- Dennis Dunham, Director of Winemaking at Oliver Winery
Sweet wine is the core of Oliver Winery, and our Soft Wine Collection is the essence of our summers. The luscious smell of Concord grapes permeates the air throughout the winery. We know that when beads of condensation gather around a bottle of Soft Red, it's the sign of a good time to come.
We had a chat with our winemaker, Dennis Dunham, to get his take on the flavor profile of our Sweet White wine. Made from Niagara grapes, it’s a fun and refreshing sweet white wine for any time. You’ll enjoy bright, floral aromas on the nose, followed by carefully preserved flavors with a rich finish and lingering sweetness.
