First variety released in 2010 by the Elderberry Improvement Project in Missouri. It is a consistent heavy yielder, well suited for the processing industry. Bushes are large, vigorous, and upright, and the large fruit clusters make harvesting more efficient compared to other varieties. Berries are medium to large. Harvests start 2-4 weeks later than the industry standard variety, ĎAdams IIí. Named after Wyldewood Cellars Winery, a leading elderberry winery in Mulvane, Kansas. Ht. 2.2m/7ft.
