Open House Weekends coming up!

August 9, 2010

lcwweblogoThe next two weekends should provide ample opportunities for folks who are looking to learn ( and taste ) more about what is going on in our neck of the woods.  This coming weekend, August 14 - 15, Lake Champlain Wines is sponsoring a Summer Wine Tour of the handful of wineries and vineyards that have sprouted up in the Plattsburgh, NY area in the last few years.  I’ve been to most of these sites, and it’s really kind of cool to see what the ground floor of a new area looks like, and what potential abides.

If you want to move just a bit farther down the time line, on the evolution of a local wine industry, the following weekend, The Vermont Grape and Wine Council has organized an open house weekend among it’s members August 21 - 22 , and as far as I can tell, all of them are participating to some degree or another.  Even UVM is getting in on the action and they are having a vineyard open house on Frday evening August 20, 3:30 - 5:30 PM

Please use this opportunity as an excuse to drop in on that local winery or vineyard that you have heard about, and if offered the chance, use the rest of your senses on a sample.
