Virtual Wine Tasting Process

For those of you new to the tastings, we open two bottles together– available for purchase at Windham Wines– and talk with the winemaker or winery owner about terroir, grapes, farming practices and wine.

Come into the shop, buy the wines, leave us your email so that we can send the Zoom link. For the tasting, have your wines ready,  prepare some snacks, and relax into the evening with some delicious conversation.

Email us your email address so that we can send you the link to participate.

Virtual Tasting – Faith Armstrong Foster – Onward and Farmstrong

May 30, 2020 @ 6:00 pm

Faith Armstrong Foster - Onward and Farmstrong
We finish off our first season of virtual tasting with two west coast women that I had hoped to get for our COVID-postponed women winemakers tasting celebrating Women’s History Month in March. As her website notes, “many of the words used to describe Faith Armstrong Foster’s wines could be used to describe the winemaker herself. Honest, vibrant, unfiltered, true to her origins, bright, complex.” Faith makes low-intervention wines from fruit purchased from single-vineyards that reflect the diversity of grapes in California and the character of the growers who farm them. The Farmstrong field rosé comes from 80 year-old Carignan and 50 year old Zinfandel, both from Mendocino. It is light, crisp, refreshing and comes in a can or bottle. I actually prefer it from the can (but of course in a glass!), both because it is so fresh and because it provides the perfect serving size of two glasses.

To participate in our virtual tastings, send us your email and we’ll send you the invitation on the morning of the tasting.

We usually taste two wines, both of which are available at Windham Wines for Friday or Saturday pick-up.
