Winemaker's Notes: Soft Wine Collection Sweet Red

  Soft Wine Collection Sweet Red pouring into a wine glass

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."
