Plan-Ahead Chicken

Plan-Ahead Chicken

When JoAnn Cazedessus blended a combination of muscadine and blueberry wines for Casa de Sue Winery and named it Jambalaya, her husband, Mac, told her, “Nobody’s going to buy that.” As time has passed, Jambalaya has proved to be the winery’s biggest seller. Nestled in the countryside near Clinton, Louisiana, Casa de Sue Winery is decidedly off the beaten path. To help build traffic, the owners moved their tasting room to a more-traveled area: The Cajun Village, in Sorrento, Louisiana. In one of the village’s quaint Acadian buildings, the Louisiana Wines store offers complimentary tastings of Casa de Sue’s 13 blends of muscadine and berry wines.
