Cabernet Sauvignon, mostly produced near Charlottesville, where Barboursville Vineyards, Blenheim Vineyards, Pippin Hill Farm and Pollak Vineyards are amongst the best.


FINGER LAKES, NEW YORK This region’s long and narrow north-south Finger Lakes can affect weather patterns. For grape growers, proximity to these lakes means more temperate (albeit snowy) winters and cooler summers. The region is perhaps best known for its Rieslings, but wineries here are making world-class Pinot Noir and Gewürztraminer.


LEELANAU AND OLD MISSION PENINSULAS, MICHIGAN These long, narrow peninsulas feature well-drained soils with glacial deposits and slightly tempered weather patterns from the surrounding waters of Lake Michigan, however the brutally cold winters here can mean vintages are rather hit and miss and white grapes tend to do better here. Wineries include L. Mawby for its authentic Traditional Method sparkling and Big Little Wines for small volume Pinot Gris and Sauvignon Blanc.


TEXAS HIGH PLAINS, TEXAS The Texas High Plains area in the middle of the state’s panhandle has been under the radar for years. Some elevations reach up to 5,000 feet, the dirt here is alkaline and calcium rich and the climate lends itself to warmer


weather red and white varieties similar to those you would find in Spain or Portugal, such as Mazuelo, Albariño and Viognier – and who knew that McPherson Cellars produce a superb Provence-style Rose!


Mischievous of me I know, but it would be great fun to do a blind tasting with some of (or similar) the above wines; a real challenge to the senses and to ingrained habits, as so many of us tend to gravitate to the familiar.


Homework for this month…throw caution to the wind and try just one wine from somewhere you would never have thought to…or were even aware produced wine…you may be very pleasantly surprised!
