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?
