Wine in Vermont

Common sense would indicate that you do not make wine in New England. Winters are coldish. Spring is latish. Summer is shortish. Fall is pretty but unpredictable. Yet, people do. Why?

Summer brought bliss and blush. Rosé wine towered wine displays everywhere. It has been enjoyable, right? You must admit it was fun. But can you honestly admit to your friends that you prefer blush to bizarre in wine. Or, are you ashamed of it? Is rosé good or great?

Athletes, musicians and even adult film stars are tackling the terroir.  The “How Wine Became Modern” exhibit at the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art last month focused on Design + Wine.

Rheinhessen: Rediscovered German Wine Country

When I was little, I wanted to become an explorer. I read all the first hand accounts of territorial conquests but concluded with some sadness that the world was already explored.
