Woodhall Wine Cellars
by
K. L. Sullivan

After traveling several miles (twenty minutes) from Basignani Winery, we arrived at Woodhall Wine Cellars where we were fortunate to meet the winemaker. As he spoke with us, one could sense the enjoyment he derives from his occupation, as winemaker.

Woodhall Wine Cellars opened in 1983 and produces ten thousand plus gallons of carefully produced wine. Woodall currently grows Chardonnay grapes and buys other grapes from within the state. “Wines should reflect the state,” the Woodhall winemaker stated.

Various events are held at Woodhall. January featured soups on weekends and February features are Barrel Tasting, Chocolate Tasting and Futures Sales. Another event is the “Futures” offering, where you can taste a wine from the barrel before it is bottled and released. The house next to the wine tasting room just opened for lunch on the weekends. For more information check Woodhall’s website.

We left Woodhall, reflecting on the winemaker’s words, “The role of the winemaker is to maximize what he starts with.”
