Wine is an experience. This has been the focal point of our winery since inception and has guided every step of our journey. The experience starts in the vineyard where we take great care to achieve optimum balance in our vines to produce high quality grapes. We are proud of our finely pruned vineyard not only because it looks good, but we know it will produce superior wine. The experience continues in the winery where we ferment our wines in small batches separated by quality, vineyard and variety. We then blend our optimum wines with complementing characteristics and age them in premium French Oak to produce our Vineyard Select series. We then take the remaining wines with good balance to produce our Vintner's Reserve series. We also produce everyday table wines like our Mississippi Red and Picket Fence as well as a complement of sweet wines made from Concord, Niagara, Rhubarb, Cherry, Cranberry and Apple. All of our wines are produced from grapes and fruit that can grow in the upper Midwest Read more »

  • We're doing a long weekend in Russian River and Napa this weekend. Flew into San Francisco yesterday with no problems. Friend picked us up at the airport, definitely beats the heck out of fighting the huge crowd at the rental car counters. Why don't they have a contiguous highway from the airport to hwy 101.So what's the first thing to do in win... Read More

  • So what’s the first thing you think of when you read Cariñena? I thought of the grape Cariñena, aka Carignane, eponymous as it is. What I did not think of was the region Cariñena in Spain’s province of Aragon. Why is that? It’s a good question, and one I resolved while visiting the region briefly early last month. Cariñena the region doesn’t jum... Read More

  • We’re back with another cellar of the month. Perhaps unwittingly I’ve taken an editorial turn over the past few months. In addition to writing about wines and wine regions, I’m finding it increasingly interesting reading about the people that make this industry work. Now that of course means winemakers, sommeliers, and writers, but the story is ... Read More

  • Hey everyone, what are some of your favorite 'everyday' or M-F types of wines to accompany a regular dinner?  I personally have enjoyed the Montoya Cabernet Sauvignon from Napa, and I usually pick it up from Total Wines out here in Virginia.  This is one of those fruit-forward cabs that isn't too complex for me to appreciate, and it usually cost...

  • Just finished tasting Ballabourneen The Stuart 2013 Chardonnay (Australian Wine Selectors Hunter Valley Series January 2014 dozen), bottled under screwcap. Supposed to have a "round and subtle biscuity finish" Well the bottle I tasted was way to subtle for me I'm afraid! I think it is due to last week's tasting of the Tapanappa  2008 Tiers Picca...

  • So I am going to Napa tomorrow for a few days.  I have some prearranged plans that cannot be changed, but have some limited  time for tasting.As "napagirl", I should already know exactly where to go.  The problem is, I get stuck into that rut of going to the ones I like, the old faves, over and over.  I would love to hear your recommendations an...

  • While traveling through Napa Valley last month I noticed that all the Vineyards I visited had roses planted around their crops. They're planted and watched closely for any early signs of infestation on the land. They monitor the Roses closely and upon early signs of problems, protective measures are taken to make sure the grape vines receive a s...
