Joe and Vickie would like to raise a glass with you at their Blue Mountain Vineyards. For over 23 years, Blue Mountain has produced a wide range of wines produced from grapes grown in the Lehigh Valley's New Tripoli, PA. In 1986 Joe and Vickie planted the initial vineyard of 5 acres consisting of French Hybrid varietals, such as Chambourcin, Vignoles, and Vidal Blanc. However, through research and experience they had discovered that the Lehigh Valley provides an excellent micro-climate for growing not only French Hybrid grapes, but also European varietals due to well drained soil and our terrain being very much like Europe. Therefore, in 1988 the winery expanded the vineyard another 5 acres, planting Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot, Pinot Noir, and Chardonnay, and have continued adding this acreage to it's present 50 acres. In Fall 1997, Blue Mountain Vinyards purchased a parcel of land that carries with it a significant historical background dating back to pre-Revolutionary War. In fact, the land has been accepted in the National Register of Historical Places! Spring of 1998 Joe and Vickie planted 20 acres of mostly vinifera grapes with the addition of Syrah, Petite Syrah, and Riesling vines. The winery's plan is to continue to plant vineyards over the next few years, which will bring the total acreage to 100 acres. In the Spring of 2007 they contructed a winemaking facility and have established a new winery - Leaser Lake Vineyards! In an effort to produce International Award winning wines, only grapes grown in the vineyards' are used to produce the excellent tasting wines.The grapes are hand picked at their peak of ripeness, fermented in stainless steel tanks, aged in French Oak barrels if appropriate, and sterile bottled. In April 2008, we were granted the designation of an American Viticulture Area (AVA). Because of this, we can now to label our wines as Estate Bottled. The Lehigh Valley is now classified with the elite wine producing regions such as Napa Valley and Sonoma County. For more information on the AVA click here. Escape to the vineyards with panoramic views of the Blue Mountain Range. The terraced vineyards will bring back fond memories of European wine regions. Blue Mountain's California style winery is beautifully appointed with ambiance that you might find in the Napa Valley, and the warmth and friendliness of European vineyards.

This regular edition of Pinot Noir from the Mavety Family is a bargain; it has that elusive, mysterious and strangely evocative "barnyard" nose but with some New Zealand-like flair with spice, leather and cherry-strawberry preserve. There is even a bitter raspberry-chocolate note (believe it). The color is a very healthy medium cherry - not unlike a village wine from Beaune and environs. Nice round, medium finish with enough acidity to last a few more years (perhaps 5). A very promising wine from British Columbia; yes, my friends the future looks very bright for Pinot Noir in this region. QED.

Nice bottle of wine. Nice ruby colour with hints of strawberry and sour cherry on the nose. Same flovours on the nose with a nice medium length finish. 87
