Freshman Wine

Our sitter recently gave us two bottles of wine from her parents vineyard. At first I was skeptical, since her parents have recently retired, bought a vineyard and are trying their hand wine making. I was not expecting very much from novice wine-makers.

To my surprise, the wine is “very” good! It is rich, bold and has a rather complex earthy flavor with hints of blackberry. Who knew? I have been raving about this wine and hope to get a few more bottles in my cellar ASAP!

Now I’m on the hunt for more novice wine-makers. I feel like I have stumbled upon a vin garage and now I’m hooked!

My Question: Does anyone have any suggestions for new wineries/vineyards that I should try that are making some seriously good wine in small productions?

  1. If you’re ever in Vermont just drive around and stop in at any vinyard you find. My fiance and I went for a long weekend and just drive around and stopped in when one caught our eye. We found some of the best wines produced from small family vineyards. They even have a map you can follow and get stamped as you visit every one. Highly recommended.
