Kim and Vinny would like to extend a heartfelt “Thank You” to the Geneva Historical Society for the partnership we have shared over the past 5 years. After thoughtful review, we have decided to close our satellite tasting room at the Rose Hill Mansion and focus solely on our main tasting room in the barn at 4760 West Lake Road in Geneva. We look forward to a continued partnership with GHS in new ways, and look forward to welcoming all our customers at our main location.
2017 Vintage Notes
I know many of you are probably wondering how last vintage’s record breaking crop turned out in the cellar. Like many local
winemakers, we were concerned that the unusually large yields would result in diluted flavors, weak color and high acids. I am happy to report none of our fears came to pass, in fact the 2017 harvest will most likely be remembered as a very good vintage with dynamic flavor and aromatic development, solid color extraction and moderate acidity. Now that we have had a chance to look critically at all of the wines, we have found that most are very expressive and balanced, with no need of cellar intervention to correct their chemistry. Once again, the old adage that ‘wines are made in the vineyard’ came to pass, so hats off to our incredible grape growing team for adapting to the difficult vintage conditions and bringing home another great lineup of wines.
