Clinton Corners, NY
With enticing names like Embrace, Romance, and Desire, one might find it hard to resist the dessert wines at Clinton Vineyards. And why should you? The five varietals hail from a vineyard that, over its 33 years, has seen its wines served at Democratic national conventions, a U.S.-Russia summit, and the White House. Clinton’s two most decorated dessert wines are Cassis, a multilayered vintage derived from black currant; and Nuit, an intense package of port-like wild black raspberry flavor. Unlike other top-notch vinos, these wines won’t double the price of your dinner bill, either: bottles go for $25-$35.
