It offers more than 25 wines from dry to sweet dessert wines, including many wines that have earned International wine-competition Double Gold and Gold Medals, such as Cabernet Sauvignon, Blackberry and Ohio Apple, among others.
Hanover Winery’s latest wine is called “Dammit Annie!” The wine is a blend of Blackberries and Haskap Berries, sweet enough for dessert. The wine was named after The McDonald’s youngest Labrador Retriever, Annie.
