Summer is here and so is Concord month. Cool off with this sweet red wine that pairs great with warm weather.

Concord, pronounced kahn-kord, is a deep, dark plum colored wine that smells like a jar of concord grape jelly. Its candy-like sweetness pairs well with cheddar cheese, BBQ, pork chops, orange chicken, spicy seafood, nutmeg, vanilla, poached pear, figs, grape pie and chocolate.

Concord accounts for 7% of all grapes grown in Missouri. There are 120.5 bearing acres of concord grapes in the state.

Missouri Wines invites you to cool off with Concord on a hot summer day!
