From the Website: “The Continental divide runs through Marked Tree Vineyard. Inspired by the ridge of land that separates the Atlantic Ocean and Mississippi River Valley, Watershed is Marked Tree Vineyards’ signature blend. This dry red wine is made with a blend of Cab Franc, Petit Verdot and aged in the barrel for 18 months. While enjoying a bottle of Watershed at Marked Tree, walk the divide and enjoy your path.”
