Andrew Rich produces wine in the state-of-the-art Carlton Winemakers Studio, the nation's first "green" cooperative winemaking facility. The studio, which is a partnership between Eric Hamacher, his wife, Luisa Ponzi of Ponzi Vineyards, and Ned and Kirsten Lumpkin of Lumpkin Construction in Seattle and Lazy River Vineyard in Yamhill, promises to be an archetype for Oregon's wine industry . The facility is home to several respected Oregon wine producers including: Hamacher Wines, Andrew Rich Wines, Bryce Vineyard, Domaine Meriwether, Dominio, Penner-Ash Wine Cellars and Soter Vineyard. Each winery will operate independently, with separate cellars and staff, but all will benefit economically from sharing state-of-the-art equipment in the gravity-driven building designed to use natural light, passive solar heat and recycled materials. The Studio has registered with the USGBC (United States Green Building Council) for certification when completed, and will be the first LEED (Leadership in Energy & Environmental Read more »

  • Andrew Rich Syrah Red Mountain les Vignes En Face 2006

    Snoothrank:

    This is wonderfully aromatic with hints of orange oil, pencil lead, pink peppercorn, soil, carob and licorice over dark fruit. In the mouth the initial rush of blackberry fruit is quickly corralled by deep tannic cut but the fruit fights through on the mid-palate to reveal deep, pure crystallized plum notes. The fruit and tannins dance across th... Read More

I remember in France, they would sell these kits with maybe 50 or more bottles, each containing different important smells to he... Read More

  • One question that often arises in the wine world is: “Where did your love affair with wine begin.” For me the answer was in a glass of 2006 Foreign Affair Cabernet Franc. This Niagara wine was made from 100 percent Cabernet Franc grapes to which an appassimento process had been applied. While a true appreciation of this wine cannot be had throug... Read More
