Frank and I are grateful to you for your support of Windham Wines. We know it is a choice, and we feel that connection which is why you are more than customers. You are our customer-friends. Thank you.
Harvest is underway throughout the northern hemisphere, including here in Vermont. Shabir Kamal, local vigneron who sells grapes to La Garagista in Barnard, checked the ripeness of his berries, declared them ready, and called the volunteer crew to pick. With just over 1/3 of an acre, 25+ volunteers picked 2400 pounds of Brianna and Marquette over two picture perfect days.
We’ve checked in with some of our other winemaking friends from the US and Italy who sent images from their current harvest, some of which are included below.
Well, it has not felt like Vermont lately, but then neither has the Pacific Northwest felt like the Northwest. Comparatively, we are lucky, and as I write, it is pouring and the temperature inside has dropped from a steamy 86 degrees to a blissful 78 degrees. We don’t tend to get long periods of unbearable heat and humidity here, but we know that it will be back. Mercifully, there is wine– especially sparkling, white and rosé.
Our July wine recommendations are perfectly calibrated to fit the joys of the summer season from hot weather to outdoor feasts. Stop in for some summer wine soon.
As the leaves unfurl and the grass greens to color our hills and mountains the hue that gives Vermont its name, we have much for which to be grateful. Summer 2021 promises to bring physical reunions with family and friends. That is cause for celebration– and we have some celebratory wines to enhance your festive mood. As always, we have been tasting and have more recommendations below, including rosés. We also have our final two virtual tastings of the winter-spring tasting season before we take our summer break.
Wine lovers, rejoice. Here is our latest selection of recommended wines for Spring 2021. Enjoy! White Wines Waterkloof, Circle of Life, White, Stellenbosch, 2016 $20 (biodynamic) 67% Sauvignon Blanc, 29% […]
