Wine Wednesday Schram Marquette

By Fitnspicy @fitnspicy

A few weeks ago we Scott and I went on a wine bus trip with a big group to check out some of the wineries on the western side of the Twin Cities. We all meet a central location and with coolers of wine and snacks in tow we set out on journey. The first few wineries were fantastic but because of some issues with time management we didn’t have very much time at the last two. Basically we ran off the bus, did our tasting and left. Sigh. Not a very good way to experience the wineries.

Thankfully one of our earlier stops was Schram. We had time to get a private tasting in their lower level and hear from the team all about each wine and how it was made. That’s a much better tasting experience. And with most of their wines being made from Minnesota grapes it’s a great place to support. And they had beer. Scott does like wine but can’t drink too much of it so he was happy to enjoy one of their Minnesota made beers.

One of our favorites at Schram was the marquette. A grape developed by the University of Minnesota to survive the harsh winters here. It’s a full bodied red that is aged in American oak and has hints of spice and deep dark red fruits. At $27 a bottle this is a splurge but I am happy to pay a bit more to support people living their passions.
