A Year in the Life

It’s amazing how much you can learn from multimedia. From this little video of Kinkead Ridge, I learned more than on most vineyard tours I’ve attended (Fox Run and Benziger excluded). This video is a great demonstration of what a small vineyard goes through each year. The ending reminds you that yes, they are in Ohio and have to deal with our midwestern weather.

In fact, Kinkead Ridge will be lucky to get 20% of their white wine crop (Rousanne, Reisling, Viognier, and Sauvignon Blanc). Luckily their Cabernet Sauvignon survived last week’s ridiculous spring freeze.

Kevin and I plan to visit several local wineries this spring and summer, and Kinkead Ridge is number 1 on that list. Ohio and Kentucky wineries have risen above the label of "fruity" wines. These wineries aren’t making strawberry wine; they’re making award winning Cabernet Francs.

The video is about 9 minutes long (so my apologies if this site took a while to load – it’s worth it) and is a great look into the inner workings of the winery.
