The best things in life are always worth the wait… After much anticipation, Long Cliff Winery’s signature semi-dry red blend, Blauer Himmel, is back again!
With notes of cherry, clove and anise, after just one sip you’ll know why it’s name means “Blue Heaven.”
But as you may remember, Blauer Himmel is extra special to the Long Cliff family for more than just its unique taste. It is a tribute to our sweet “Grandma Judy” who stood beside us as the vineyard was planted & supported Don’s dream of opening his own winery. Grandpa designed this wine especially for her. He purposely set out to craft a pizza/pasta wine made primarily from the “blue grape,” (Blaufrankisch) because it was her favorite color, and hid her name in grape vines across the top of our classic label design. Look closely and you’ll even spy a halo and angel wings in each of the four corners.
Our first wine to ever sell out (not once but twice!), having it return to the shelf just in time for our lucky 7th Anniversary feels like the perfect reminder that we’ve always got a guardian angel watching over this little #farmfamily.
