Marie Dorion, a Native American of the Iowa Tribe, was the only female member of an 1811-12 overland expedition, financed by John Jacob Astor, to establish a fur trading post at the mouth of the Columbia River—just six years after Sacagawea made her trek. Marie and her two young children survived a 40-man massacre and overwintered alone in the wilderness in 1814. In 1841, Marie settled on a farm on the French Prairie, in the same area Lady Hill calls home. Hers is a harrowing story of strength and resilience and we pay homage by labeling our Cuvée Marie Dorion in her name under the Lady Hill brand.
Our newest release in our Pioneer Series is equal combination of Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon and showcases hues of dark plum and royal ruby into crimson around the rim. The lush mouthfeel is weighted with blackberry liquor, currants and a spicy leather. The finish is all Red Mountain, with an intense tannin structure built for long term age ability or a juicy T-bone steak. Come by the tasting room now through the end of November to taste our newest release.
