Day 81-Hometown White by the Willett's Winery and Cellar in Manito, Il for $12.50
This is a white table wine that is blend of the niagara grape and one other type of grape, I can't remember now. We stopped at this winery on our way down to Troy's parents house. The winery is doing well, and will be opening another shop in Peoria, Il. This wine was delicious, a great summer wine with a sweet grapey taste that was pure niagara-or the welch's white grape juice. The wine is light and sweet and was one of my favorite wines of the week in the country. The owner of the winery Dan was very friendly and told us that this wine was just bottled 3 days prior to us buying it. This wine showed no effects of bottle shock. This wine would be a great wine for a party especially if the people at the party are not wine drinkers or are sweet wine drinkers.
