This fizzy delight from Finger Lakes-based Chepika Wines is composed of the hybrid variety, Catawba. This copper-skinned grape makes low tannin, savory reds and rosé wines. The grapes were grown on Keuka Lake, organically farmed since the 1970s, and  vinified with indigenous yeasts. Chepika is a passion project helmed by friends: Finger Lakes native and winemaker Nathan Kendall and sommelier Pascaline Lepeltier. The name comes from the Lenape language spoken by the Indigenous people who lived in Delaware and means “root.” The mission of Chepika is to  highlight nearly forgotten varieties of the Finger lakes region that date back to pre-Prohibition.
