The Norton grape is a true native American grape of the species vitis aestivalis and the official state grape of Missouri. Since the Norton grape evolved under North-American, continental growing conditions, it is perfectly suited to their long, warm summers and cold winters. In addition, it is blessed with a natural resistance to all types of fungal disease. Stone Hill's estate-bottled Norton is produced from 100 percent estate-grown Norton grapes from their own Norton Vineyards high above the Missouri River. Careful fermentation on the skins is followed by 12 months of aging in French, Hungarian and American oak barrels.
