That success is now part of Meier's Wine Cellars, Ohio's oldest and largest winery.
Using grapes from Lake Erie's tiny Isle St. George just two miles from the Canadian border, Meier's Wine Cellars is perhaps most famous for its non-alcoholic juices, including this premium Concord grape juice.

The first vines at North Carolina's Biltmore Estate were established in 1971. Today the 94-acre estate vineyard is the most visited winery in the United States.

But Biltmore also bottles non-alcoholic products. It only seems fitting that this American castle, the nation's largest home, would choose Concord and Catawba native American grapes for its juices. Sip a little history with a goblet of Biltmore's still Concord grape juice.

The beautiful blush of Meier's Pink Catawba is no accident. All it takes is a serving of Ohio Catawba grapes blended with America's native northern grape, Concord to produce a pink hue and a flavorful and fruity blend.
So what is Cold Duck? The original recipe was based on a German legend involving Prince Clemens Wenceslaus ordering the mixing of all the dregs of unfinished wine bottles with Champagne. The blend was given the name Kaltes Ende ("cold end" in German), until it was humorously altered to the similar sounding term Kalte Ente meaning "cold duck." The Meier's juice version takes Sparkling Pink Catawba and ups the Concord ratio to produce a deeper color than Catawba and a more forceful flavor profile than Concord. Simply genius at work!
