Our friends camped through Harvest Host at the Rusty Nail Winery.

Thrilled they thought enough to bring us back a bottle.

The varietal confused us, we knew it wasn’t Vinifera nor Muscadine and felt certain it was a native varietal.

However, the color through us off. We guessed rosé of Norton or a Lambrusco red and white blend.

Due to this confusion, we reached out to Owner/Winemaker Mike Crate.

Mike educated us on Pink Catawba, and we learned a “whole bunch!”

Pink Catawba fruit develops less pigment with a lighter reddish-purplish skin than regular Catawba and thereby imparting a beautiful rosé color to this wine.

Pink Catawba is a cross of Catawba and of another unknown parent grape , though many believe the other parent to be the Vinifera Semillion.

The Rusty Nail Winery is a small family farm vineyard and winery operation, just opened three years ago.

The winery sits a good 45 minutes from the next nearest neighboring winery, so yeah it’s a little out of the way. However, if you find your way traveling Interstate 81 towards Martinsburg, West Virginia, please make a little time and stop in for an enjoyable visit!

They’ve a great story to tell and very interesting wines to taste!
