These are the first reactions we get from people that hear about us. Yes we do have a Winery in Homer, Alaska. It is located on Bear Creek Drive overlooking beautiful Kachemak Bay and the Glaciers beyond.Although we do not grow grapes here, we do grow, pick and process some of the best berries in the world. Along with our signature (and very popular!) Blue Zin wine we make Raspberry, Blueberry Wine, Fireweed Honey Wine (wow!), an amazing Strawberry Wine and lots and lots of Rhubarb wine. These wines are all made from locally-grown ingredients. We do make grape wines as well (see our wine list) from grape juice concentrate we purchase from our wholesaler who imports from all over the globe. We also blend our country wines with the grape wines we produce. Our Blu Zin (Blueberry/White Zinfandel) is so smooth we have trouble making it fast enough for everyone. We also make “Sno Goose”, “Alaskan Chardonnay”, Bluberry Mirlo and Shirazzberry. So when you are in Homer come by to visit and you will be able to sample any of our wines before making a purchase. Most of our wines are one-of-a-kind and cannot be purchased anywhere else. Check us out on Facebook for the latest winery musings and the construction of the Read more »

  • Napa Valley grape growers and winemakers wore out their worry beads in 2011. Rain came early, often and didn’t want to go away. It was a cool year as well, forcing winemakers to spend even more time walking the vineyards than usual. Napa Valley is accustomed to dry, warm, sunny growing seasons. It’s Cabernet Sauvignon wines are widely known for ... Read More

  • I was right, Taste of Sonoma was a cattle call. The gates opened at 11:00, we rolled in at 11:30 and the line was longer than I have ever seen. This was half way in... Not sure what was worse, waiting in line or being treated to a woman behind me going on and on about wine, grapes, commercial harvesters etc when she had no clue what she was talk...

  • Just went and checked that Wine Berserker thread again, and it looks to be picking up a head of steam. Got a pointer there to a Wine Spectator article that I hadn't seen, which spotlights a recent UC Davis report on brettanomyces in wine. The article's a good one, not too long, and bears reading. Some highlights: 'Mousey. Wet Dog. Burnt plastic.... Read More

    Forum post in the topic A purposely 'bretted' wine?


  • I know of a number of people in the craft beer world who are purposely introducing brettanomyces into the brewing equation to see how interesting things can get. 'Wild yeast' beers are barely (not) controllable but they are rapidly becoming cult items. Case in point, this quote about a Sierra Nevada brew, taken from Good Morning America: Sierra ... Read More

  • Liver what? It’s that great wine region you’ve never heard of. Less than an hour from San Francisco. A growing wine scene based on a century and a half of history. Great climate, friendly people, tasting rooms that are not filled to capacity with people you don’t want to be rubbing shoulders with. You know, one of those regions that is truly up ... Read More

  • Mr Prof and I went with another couple.  I’ve given our overall evaluation as a group which was pretty consistent.  I went with the idea of signing up for a wine club membership if I found one I liked, and I ended up picking two: Vina Robles and Dark Star.  I didn’t write up my specific tasting notes on each wine, because a) I’m still pretty ine...

  • There's an argument to be made for Riesling, and it's made on a regular basis. It goes something like this: Riesling is great, it's flexible and it's food friendly, with wines ranging from dry to syrupy sweet, so there's something for everyone to like. This has been the argument of the day for years now. Trouble is Riesling still finds resistanc... Read More
