I have to admit I'm curious about this.
Chateau Thomas is right up the road, really, with a tasting room in Nashville, IN (outside of Columbus, IN) and the winery in Plainfield, IN, close to the Indianapolis Airport. I've visited the Nashville tasting room, but it's been a few years. I remember preferring their wines to another tasting room I visited in Nashville, but that's as specific as I can get.
I can say that my experiences with Indiana wines are as hit and miss as my experiences with Kentucky wines. Some are great; some are (insert fruit of your choice here) fruit juice. So my curiosity is piqued with the announcement of Slender, a new sugar-free wine from Chateau Thomas.
Slender comes in White, Blush, and Red and claims to have no sugar, no carbs, no fats, and no aftertaste.
All three are blends and contain Splenda. If anything, this wine offers a great alternative for people like my mother, who suffer from Type I/juvenile diabetes.
Slender retails for $9.99 and is available at the winery, tasting room, and at several Indiana Crown Liquor stores.
Update: In the comments, Dr. Thomas notes that they have discontinued the wine with Splenda. They now carry "the new Slender wine
which contains Erythritol, a no-calorie, zero glycemic, natural
sweetener which tastes just like dextrose and has no aftertaste.
Erythritol is the same sweetener used in Orbit gum." You can learn more on their web site. This new blend would also work nicely for my mom.
