Our estate fruit.

Cab Franc wine grapes

Cabernet  Franc

Late ripening berries that give high sugar content and dark fruit flavors to the wine they make, “Cab. Franc” is somewhat difficult to get just right due to its ripening requirements, if achieved a fruit forward explosion can be expected.  Potent and flavorful a classic and a favorite here at 4 Whistles Winery.

Lemberger wine grapes


Large berries have high juice yield, giving this wine a light floral palette as well as a great capacity to enhance other varietal characteristics in a blend.

Cabernet  Sauvignon

Small berries with thick skin produce dark fruit flavors and full bodied strong flavored wines. Usually associated with dark fruit and rich earthy flavors, “Cab. Sauv” is one of the worlds most popular wine varietals.

Merlot grapes


Long clusters and small berries give great juice to skin ratio, making this grape one of the most prominent across the world.  Early harvesting   yields notes of red fruit and bright acidity, late harvests yields dark fruit and jam flavors.  The general fluidity of the fruits flavors make the wine easy to work with and great for any occasion.

Petit Verdot

Tiny berries and clusters give this bordeaux varietal notoriety as a blending grape. On our site the skins become even thicker packing in more flavor and longer aging potential.  We think it shines on its own as an ultra dark and floral red wine. and expect it to be an estate star.

Grapes on a vine


Translated from Italian, the name Dolcetto means “little sweet one” this grape loves long hot days and cool nights. Wines from this fruit have incredible fruit characteristics and pack a punch with brightness and complexity as well.  On our site we believe the climate is right and our limited topsoil will give our Dolcetto a unique spark.


This popular bordeaux grape is most notable for its incredible blackberry bramble notes.  While other grape varietals also possess this unique aromatic compound malbec is supreme with accessory notes like honeysuckle and black raspberry.  With enough tannin to back it up the wines from this grape typically cellar for decades.


One of the most significant German white grapes globally riesling is known for its incredible flexibility and amazing depth.  Most ice wines are made from it and while it is often known for being sweet or semi sweet this grape makes beautifully aromatic dry white wine and we believe really shines on its own.
