A winery is a building or property that produces wine, or a business involved in the production of wine, such as a wine company. Some wine companies own many wineries. Besides wine making equipment, larger wineries may also feature warehouses, bottling lines, laboratories, and large expanses of tanks known as tank farms. The oldest winery in the world found to date is a 6,000 year old winery in the Areni region of Armenia, which is still a wine making region today.

He insisted that he knew some people visiting from France who were literally raving about the Texas wines. This stuck in my head – but I had no way of verifying…

  • Wineries of New England: Connecticut Winery Trail

    … difficult to add the vintage there – however, none of the wineries we visited had this information on. Another interesting note was a proud mention of the 15% ABV for the Big Red wine (none of the other notes have ABV listed) – it was almost shown as a point of achievement, which was really mind boggling to me. In addition to the wines, you can buy…

There, we also had a chateuneufdupapian GSM from Calcareous which paired extremely well with the venison medallion. At Artisan, the Lone Madrone “The Will” (grenache, petite sirah, zin) stood up nicely to the wild boar…

  • Iron Horse Vineyards | Sebastopol, CA

    Iron Horse Vineyards in Sebastopol, CA was by far my biggest wine related surprise of the year. I mean this in the best possible way for a couple different reasons. Iron Horse Ranch & Vineyards I love Champagne, but I tend to stay away from California Sparkling Wines. While there are some standouts, I find many of them too sweet and lacking the tiny, delicate Methode C ...

  • Larner Vineyard & Winery | Los Olivos, CA

    … Oftentimes when I visit a winery, I find that I enjoy meeting the people involved in making the wine just as much as I enjoy the wine itself. Such was the case when I visited Larner Vineyard & Winery in Los Olivos, CA. Larner Wines I’m fascinated by the winemaking process and am always excited when I get to chat with a winemaker I admire…

  • Schramsberg Vineyards

    … at $43. It was produced from 61% Pinot Noir and 39% Chardonnay. It had a very fruity aroma that was quite appealing. On the palate I got mostly strawberry, tangerine and raspberry. Crisp, refreshing and rather light with an emphasis on fresh fruit and charm, this sparkler would be especially appealing on a warm day and should pair well with many…

  • Tree Decorating and A6

    … One of our traditions at this time of the year is to spend a Friday evening decorating my Christmas tree. We plan to have ham, yams, and cranberry sauce. And the wine we try to have every year is the A6 from Cardinal Point Vineyard. The A6 is a blend of viognier and chardonnay…two of our favorite grapes. The Viognier spends time in oak…
