Our latest addition is Flathead Lake Winery from Columbia Falls, Montana. The winemaker there, Paddy Fleming, hand makes a variety of fruit wines including a cherry wine, a rare white cherry wine, a cherry-pinot noir blend, a mirabelle plum wine and a huckleberry wine.
Flathead’s huckleberry wine, called Glacier Park Wild Huckleberry Wine, is the only 100% huckleberry wine sold in the United States.
If there are any bears on your Christmas shopping list, this is no-brainer. And a fair warning, drinking this wine on a picnic in a national forest is a a recipe for excitement since bears can smell huckleberries from 50 miles away.
Though, it is interesting that lodges on the premises of Glacier National Park serve up Paddy’s wild huckleberry wine to hikers and guests.
