Drink Local WineIt’s an amazing time to be in the wine industry in America.  Wine is now made in all fifty United States, and we’ve tasted some startling wines over the past few months.

This spring we are in the process of visiting wine conferences around the country: Illinois, Missouri, Texas, Michigan, Minnesota, Virginia, and beyond.

What fun!

We’ve tasted good wines from all those states, as well as from Oklahoma, Kentucky, North Carolina, Ohio, Connecticut, and North Dakota.

And yes, the wines were more than just “interesting.”. They were tasty, well made, balanced and delicious.

We’ve enjoyed Rieslings and Cabernet Francs, Vignoles and Nortons, Muscats and sparklers.

Even better, each of these wineries (and in most of the states above there are 100 wineries or more) is introducing new people and their communities to wine.  That’s good news for everybody associated with wine.

Want some fun?  Try Canadian Ridge or Whispering Meadows wines from Oklahoma.  Or St. James or Stone Hill from Missouri. Or…

Well, you get the idea.  If variety is the spice of life, the world of wine is getting spicier by the second.
