LA NOUE DUBOIS WINERY
We understandably get a lot of questions about what our brand means. LaNoue DuBois (LahNew DewBwah) isn’t exactly the easiest name to say, but it has deep meaning to us. In French, it means “LaNoue of the Woods.” LaNoue is our last name, and the maiden name of the matriarch in our family is Woods. All of the surrounding property around the vineyard and winery used to be part of the Woods Estate, and the vineyard is still called Woods Estate Vineyard. This dream of ours couldn’t have happened without both families, so we chose this name to be symbolic of “LaNoue Wines From The Woods Estate”.
Lanoue Dubois Winemaker/ Rep
We are a family run vineyard and winery that focuses on making unique wines made with love.
The five varieties that we grow are Marechal Foch, Leon Millot, Frontenac, Frontenac Gris, and New York Black Muscat. Never heard of any of these? That’s ok, neither has most of our first time customers. All five of these varieties are either called “Cold Hardy” or “French-American Hybrid” varieties. These Cold Hardy varieties are extremely resilient to cold temperatures, and have a natural resistance to diseases. Even in wet years we don’t have to spray for things like Powdery Mildew!
