Pomegranate wine

Just the other night, I enjoyed a pomegranate wine with dinner. This is a bottle of wine I bought in 2007 while visiting Hinnant Family Vineyards. This 100% pomegranate wine is bottled in a clear bottle with a lovely label accented with gold and an artistic view of a pomegranate tree. Rather than having a red […]

Vintage Ridge Vineyard & Winery

The large bright and cheerful room can easily be converted from a tasting room to a wine production room when necessary.

Visitors may find […]

Glass […]

Enjoy Local Wines When Traveling

Grapes are influenced by the areas in which they grow, sometimes referred to as terroir. All of this takes on much more importance when you travel. When undertaking a journey, be sure to choose restaurants that serve local wines. Do you want to remember your journey to Virginia with California wines, your visit to Italy with French wines […]

As we discovered Oregon and Washington are beautiful despite the vineyards not leafed out yet. The buds are swelling so it won’t be long. The views of Willamette Valley AVA, […]
