Whether you are visiting the winery for the first time or are already familiar with our wines, I sincerely want to thank you for visiting today and welcome you to our home, vineyard and winery. Our journey from home winemaking to opening a small farm winery began in 2004. My wife Barbara and I enrolled in a winemaking course at the local community college. For the past 10 years we have been making wine and sharing it with our family and friends. Additionally, it has become an annual Christmas tradition to bless the family and the Nouveau wines made from the most recent harvest while everyone is gathered for the holiday meal. We are excited to share our vineyard and welcome you as part of our extended family to enjoy our wine, the ancient symbol of community, prosperity, and well being.
