Produced by Lieb Family Cellars, the limited edition Memorial Commemorative Merlot 2010 is barrel-fermented, while the Memorial Commemorative Chardonnay 2010 is stainless steel-fermented.
The wines, which retail for US$19.11 each, have the stamp of approval from the 9/11 Memorial Foundation, which worked closely with the winery to develop the label.
Both were made from grapes grown 90 miles from the site of the World Trade Center.
10% of the proceeds from the sale of the wines will go to the National September 11 Memorial and Museum.
