Sirius Pear Dessert Wine

Decadent ripe fruit combines with woodsy spice in this wine produced from 100% Bartlett pears. Because we source these pears from a neighboring farm, we are able to capture and bottle the opulent flavors of the perfectly ripened fruit. This wine is made in the port-style and fortified with our own pear brandy.Sirius Pear Dessert Wine
