Special Wines, for that Special Night in a Special Place
The Speckled Hen Inn is pleased to offer some very special, enticingly priced wines for your enjoyment during your stay.
Your Innkeepers have been enthusiastically collecting and enjoying wines for over 30 years. They would like to share their wine passion and experience with you. These wines “exemplify the grape varietals” (Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Grenache, Petite Syrah, Malbec, Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, etc.) and have been tasted and selected by the Innkeepers for the Inn’s wine list. Most of the featured wines have received ratings of 90 or more points (which is exceptional!) and are outstanding values for the money.
Choose your wine from the list below and it will be delivered to your door at the proper serving temperature and with the appropriate stemware. We think that there is no more perfect way to spend an evening than relaxing with a bit of wine, some special tunes, and someone dear.
Our wines are sold ONLY by the full bottle. It is also legal in Wisconsin for us to re-cork any wine remaining in your bottle so that you may take it home with you. All wine purchases are subject to Wisconsin sales tax.
2008 14 Hands, Cabernet Sauvignon, Washington State. This wine features aromas of sweet cassis and black cherries with subtle hints of spice and dried herbs. Dark stone fruit flavors are joined by notes of cocoa and complemented by fine velvety tannins. It is great paired with a Glass Nickel Fetalicious pizza. $15
2008 Red Diamond, Merlot, Washington State. Aromas of tea, molasses, and casis introduce this Merlot. The fleshy and subtle palate displays flavors of figs, vanilla and a touch of caramel that lead to the creamy thick finish. Pairs nicely with Wisconsin Artisan cheeses. $15
2009 Terrazas Malbec, Argentina. Deep crimson with sharp candy red highlights. Upon swirling, jazzy notes of blackberries and sour cherries develop into fine traces of smoke and spices. Bright and generous, a lively mouthful of ripened plums and boysenberry, with chewy tannins and a violet scent building up to a refreshing finish. A great wine to finish out a great day. $15
2004 Sequra Vivdas, Brut Reserva (Sparkling), Spain. Pale straw yellow in color, elegant and harmonious on the nose, and fresh and well balanced on the palate, where the predominance of Macabeo is evident. Ample flavors and a persistent, fine finish. $15
2008 Benvolio, Fruili grave, Pinot Grigio, Italy. Vibrant on the palate, the crisp acidity acts as a counterpoint to the peach, almond, and light floral notes in the wine. A great aperitif. $15
2009 Kendall-Jackson Chardonnay, California. Beautiful integrated tropical flavors such as pineapple, mango and papaya with citrus notes that explode in your mouth. These flavors delicately intertwine with aromas of vanilla and honey to create depth and balance throughout. A hint of toasted oak rounds out the long, lingering finish. K-J Chard is a constant favorite of chardonnay lovers everywhere. $15
