This weekend I was poking around the Internets and stumbled upon Green Truck Cellars. It’s a 1-man operation run by Kent Fortner. The web site is extensive and very much like a good story. You have the opportunity to learn about everything from Kent and the truck to the exact grapes he chooses to use in his quest to create a perfect pinot noir. You’ll enjoy the story.
I was touched by the entire web site and without hesitation signed up to be a "Trucker." Kent makes small batches – around 200 cases I think – and he has many restaurants on his list. Truckers get first dibs though, and I’m interested to try it. Current budget crunches kept me from ordering even a half-case, so I’ll have to make do with 3 bottles, but I’m excited to try his 2005 vintage.
One of the great things about wine is that sometimes the little guy can put all his heart and soul into something and when you get to try it, you get to taste that passion. I’m looking forward to it.
