Founded in the 1970's By Jim and Patricia Hofherr, St. James Winery is named for the city it was founded in: St. James, Missouri, an area known for concord grapes and a rich Italian heritage. Jim Hofherr worked for a number of wineries before ultimately deciding with his wife to found his own winery. It is Now run by the second generation of Hofherrs, John and Andrew, following the death of their father Jim in 1994. Prior to this change, John Hofherr trained as a winemaker in Fresno, California, while Andrew Hofherr studied viticulture at the University of Arkansas. The two have since worked to improve the variety, quality, and efficiency of their winery, and have won a number of awards. They currently maintain vineyards in Missouri, Arkansas, and Michigan, bringing their total acreage to 500 and their grape varieties to 15. – Description from NekotoNikku

  • There is a winery in Mt Vernon that makes a beautiful St. Vincent, and Seyval Blanc, Montelle makes a delicious Seyval Blanc, and I have even had a good Cab Franc on occasion.  And I do like the Norton, in particular, Bommarito in New Haven.  Also, there's a guy in St. James, Heinrich, who is an old German in overalls and a beret who makes delic...

  • I have recently seen some general headlines in the "health news" sections of various news sources.  Evidently, the WHO has declared alcohol unsafe in ANY quantity, and wants to discourage its use to ease the burden of public health cost/resources.  Like most medical studies, I approached this one with skepticism.  I subscribe to a medical journa...

Our family room was redone using dark hickory planking and the room has a short wall next to our fireplace. This wall has always presented a challenge to make use of the space. I researched and sear... Read More
