A visit to Harpersfield Winery in Madison, Ohio

December

12th

2013

Every winery has its very own personality.  Many make you feel welcome and at home while some are interested in selling wine and that’s that.  Harpersfield Winery in Madison, Ohio equates to the former and in many special ways.  In summer, Harpersfield features live entertainment on the front lawn next to the vineyard.  In winter….well, winter is special.  Gathering around the fireplace in the very cozy tasting room makes for a special time spent with friends.  While the many wines offered by Harpersfield are quite good, so in their menu.  The flat bread pizza’s are exceptional and are the perfect comfort food.  The cheese plate, bread tray and sandwiches are all worth a try.  This is a family run operation and you will likely be talking to the owners or a family member when you belly up to order.  Not to mention the winery terriers …..friendly and very cute, they are professional greeters and likely to pull up your lap for a brief nap.

Follow the winemaker

November

4th

2013

It is a fact that information is power and without a doubt, wine lovers are constantly seeking information.  New labels, interesting growers, up and coming areas.  When it comes to California we commonly stick with Napa Valley, Sonoma and Santa Barbara. Of course, many other locations are growing excellent grapes and making fantastic wine.  One way to get the jump on where to look, is to follow the winemakers.

David Galzignado, formerly of Paraduxx (podcast #5, October, 2008) and Scott Shirley, formerly of The Hess Collection (podcast #8-Napa Valley Barrel Auction-July, 2008) have moved to Paso Robles to work with Jada & Justin respectfully.  Think that may tell you something?

Our newsletter features the brief ‘Ray’s Picks’ section pointing out wines well worth giving a try.  From time to time we will blog here on the website to further that effort in turning our wine loving friends on to labels they should investigate.  This week we offer a tip of the hat to three lovely reds, 2008 Chateau La Tour Carnet coming in around $40, 2007 Terlato Cardinal’s Peak which is closer to $50 and 2008 Rubicon (Inglenook-Francis Ford Coppola) Cask.  All three of these wines were deep red with full body and an excellent finish.  Watch for more wine picks in the coming weeks….cheers.
