Day 244 Drink: Buccia Agawam
Buccia Vineyard is located in Conneaut, Ohio, about an hour east of Cleveland. The region along Lake Erie produce a climate that allows vineyards to thrive in Ohio, Pennsylvania and New York.
Agawam is a rare grape made from a hybrid of the Carter and Black Hamburg. The rustic Buccia Vineyard is the only one that I have found that produces an Agawam varietal. Buccia also operates a bed and breakfast.
Buccia Agawam is a honey orange color with a grape aroma. The wine has a sweet body that features honeysuckle, citrus and mango flavor notes. A fun wine for a casual summer evening.
