Pat Paulsen Vineyards

American Gothic - featuring Pat and Jane Paulsen

First launched with a vintage of 1984 California red wine featuring a blend of Napa Valley Gamay Beaujolais, American Gothic Red started life as a benefit wine for Farm Aid, the Willie Nelson-fueled charity for Midwest farmers during the 80s drought and recession years. Jane Paulsen, herself originally a Midwestern farming girl, wholly supported and sympathized in the cause. Now, 30 years later, farmers are back on their feet and Pat Paulsen Vineyards is back in the driver’s seat with a re-release of American Gothic Red, a dry Cabernet-based blend, and American Gothic White, a dry crisp Sauvignon Blanc that’s easy to drink and fun to share.
