Marquette

ALC 12.0% By Volume

marquette

In 2010, we planted our first block of grapes at Edwin Brix Vineyard. Marquette is a cold hearty varietal developed by the University of Minnesota, and a distant relative of Pinot Noir.

Harvested in late September this wine was produced first in stainless steel and then aged for 24 months in French oak barrels until it was ready for bottling.

This hearty red wine can be enjoyed much like you would Pinot Noir, Cabernet or Merlot wines, and pairs extremely well with beef and pork, or with friends and family over good conversation.

Sold Out - Returning Summer/Fall 2024 

triunity

Triunity – three in one – can be a difficult concept to grasp.

Triunity is a very special wine from Edwin Brix Vineyard. For the past 3 years, we’ve held back a small quantity of our home grown Marquette, Sabrevois, and Frontenac wines, continuing to cellar the wine in French and American oak barrels until the time we felt it best for bottling.

In this bold, but mellow wine, you will sense blackberry, currant, and other overtones typically found in a high end dry red wines. Triunity is the perfect wine with steak or pork much like you would enjoy a fine Cabernet, Pinot Noir or Merlot wine.

Frontenac 

NEW WINE - Available Summer/Fall 2024 

Frontenac is a classic blueish-black grape known for its rich, red wines and high vigor vines.

Frontenac grapes were developed and released in 1996 by the University of Minnesota. The introduction of Frontenac marked the start of the major cold climate movement in states like Wisconsin, Iowa, and Minnesota as the acreage of cold hardy grapes and public interest in cold hardy wines rapidly grew. Edwin Brix planted Frontenac grapes for the first time in 2012.

We blend a very small percentage of our Marquette grape with the Frontenac to achieve the finished Frontenac wine we present for your enjoyment. After ten days of maceration, followed by malolactic fermentation, this wine was aged in stainless steel prior to blending with Marquette, final filtering and bottling.

Edwin Brix Vineyard's 2020 Brix Blend is the essence of our winery. The unique red blend combines our Marquette, Sabrevois, and Frontenac varietals into a red blend with just at touch of sweetness remaining.

After maceration in the fall of 2020, the three varietals were racked and aged in stainless steel tanks prior to bottling.  

Produced slightly sweet, this wine is perfect for enjoying with a variety of foods, or as a casual wine for sharing with family, friends, and good conversation. 


Sabrevois

Wisconsin
ALC 12.0% By Volume

sabrevois

Generally grapes with French names don’t originate in Wisconsin.

Sabrevois, a very cold hearty red wine grape was developed by Midwest grape pioneer Elmer Swenson in northwest Wisconsin. The grape became popular with vintners in Quebec and was renamed Sabrevois.

We first planted Sabrevois at Edwin Brix Vineyard in 2011 and in 2013 harvested Sabrevois for the first time. After a week of maceration followed by malolactic fermentation, the wine was aged in stainless steel for eleven months prior to bottling.

This mild red wine can be enjoyed with a wide range of food over dinner, around the summer campfire, or near the fireplace when the weather turns cold.


Rosé Wine

Wisconsin
ALC 12.0% By Volume

Rosé may be the oldest known type of wine as it is the most straightforward to make. Red Grapes are harvested, pressed and fermented off the skins, resulting in a lighter colored wine than if fermented on the skins.

Our 2019 vintage Rosé  was harvested in mid October, pressed off the skins and cold fermented. After fermentation the new wine was aged in stainless steel tanks, and after multiple rackings and final filtering our Edwin Brix Rosé was bottled. 

We hope you enjoy our Rosé.

Frontenac Blanc

Around 2012, by chance, some red Frontenac vines in Minnesota mutated and dropped their pigment, and after some years of development, a new white varietal - Frontenac Blanc - became available. We planted our first Fontenac Blanc starting in 2018.

Frontenac Blanc is an acidic, dry white wine - similar to Sauvignon Blanc - with peach and apricot expressions and citrusy aromatics. The wine pairs well with salads, cheese, seafood, and chicken.

NEW WINE - Available Summer/Fall 2024 

Frontenac Blanc

Around 2012, by chance, some red Frontenac vines in Minnesota mutated and dropped their pigment. The University of Minnesota developed this mutated vine into the Frontenac Blanc varietal and we planted the grape in 2016, making our first wine in 2018.

We are not pleased to present this Reserve Vintage named Frontenac Blanc - Oak Blanc Reserve. This wine was fermented first, maintained in stainless steel for a year, and then carefully aged in new French Oak barrels for more than a year before bottling.

The wine pairs well with a variety of cheeses,  white meats, salads and seafood. We hope you enjoy this special vintage of this premium white wine from Edwin Brix.

LaCrosse

LaCrosse is a light-skinned hybrid grape developed by Elmer Swenson and named after the Mississippi River city of the same name. This complex grape was developed using Seyval Blanc as a parent and Saint-Pepin as a sibling. 

In this first vintage of our LaCrosse wines you'll notice the flavors of pear and  apricot as well as a pleasant Muscat-type aroma. 

Harvested in September 2022, the grapes were pressed and the wine fermented off the skins. Temperature was controlled throughout the fermentation process to assure a gentle transition from sugar to alcohol.

Brianna

Brianna is our most popular white wine and recently won a silver medal at New York's 2017 International Wine Competition.

E-Flat Eddie

E-Flat Eddie is our alternative label for our fun-loving fruit wines at Edwin Brix Vineyard.

Teaching is a mainstay of the Sell Family. My father took up the profession in the late 1940's and with it, came the end of dairying on the family farm. My mother & sister also became teachers, as did I, later in my non wine making career. My sister Karen's first teaching assignment was in a kindergarten classroom. With that in mind, we named this newest of our fruit wines Kindergarten Karen. 

The photo is my sister Karen teaching (so many years ago) in her Kindergarten classroom located near the twin cities of Minnesota. 

We hope you like this new entry to the Edwin Brix grouping of sweet fruit wines, as much as we like Karen!

Little Sister Dessert Wine 

Wisconsin 
ALC 18.0% By Volume

My wife of 46 years, Chris is the glue that holds together the Sell family; an Interior Designer and a Master Gardener, she brings the “wow” factor to the buildings and grounds of Edwin Brix Vineyard. Chris is the youngest of three daughters, and thus the name Little Sister for this sweet dessert wine. Like Chris, our Little Sister dessert wine is very sweet.

Made from a blend of our Marquette, Sabrevois and Frontenac grapes, this limited production wine was aged in French Oak for nearly two years, sweetened, and final filtered prior to bottling. Dessert wines are meant to be enjoyed at the end of a great meal and are blended to be slightly sweeter than the dessert itself.

We hope you enjoy this sweet after dinner wine with your favorite dessert whether it is pie, ice cream, cake, cannoli, tiramisu, or any other sweet creation.
