Blessing of a harvest in fall is as important as the blessing of the vines in spring

 Mark As Read    

The blessing of a harvest is a major, religious tradition in all wine regions. In the spring, many ceremonies also occur for the blessing of wine grape vines. I once had to research "why," when asked; so, I went to my dear friend the Reverend Doctor John Staten. John and his family own Field Stone […] The post Blessing of a harvest in fall is...

The Russians are coming, the Russians are coming

 Mark As Read    

It's always a joy to receive Iron Horse Vineyards' bubbles. As I read Joy Sterling's cover letter about her family's 2010 Russian Cuvée, it sparked another memory, but first, what was written, so you understand the brain connection. Understandably, my family still takes complete credit for ending the Cold War. The 2010 Russian Cuvée in […] ...

Well, this was bound to happen, regardless of race, creed, or political party. The removal of Wine Train passengers brings a lot of issues to the forefront, from the side of someone on the other side of the bar.

Evolution of a Wine Drinker
