    Cape May Winery in September

    Cape May Winery in September October 15, 2014 by NJ Wine with Me This slideshow requires JavaScript. Every Summer my family vacations in Wildwood, which is just a couple exits away from Cape May. During this annual trip, I usually urge them to try the Cape May wineries. They really enjoy resting on the beach all day while on vacation – I can’t blame them – so they usually decline my suggestions.

    The Boonville Winery survived the Civil War but not the railroad expansion of Californian wine

    I had intended this post to simply contain an image of the Boonville Wine Company building but then I fell down the rabbit hole that is the history of wine making in Missouri. Thomas Pinney does an excellent job of outlining this history in his important book A History of Wine in America: From the Beginnings to Prohibition.

      Giant Steps Sexton Chardonnay 2012

      …, with grapefruit, grip and length. The nose reminds me of a riesling - flint, powder, pollen and crushed lime leaf. Also the Si Vinters Semillon Chardonnay 2012. More cider than wine. Unfiltered and cloudy. A Fino sherry nose, with something salty and nutty. It feels gentle and slightly microbial, and in contrast to the Giant Steps - there are no green edges.
