Wine Talk: The Birthplace of Wine

February 09, 2014

Terry & Kathy Sullivan have visited thousands of wineries all around the world. Thousands! They have truly earned their pen name, "Wine Trail Traveler." They're traveling to visit us on Sunday, April 27th to give a couple talks about their new book: Georgia, Sakartvelo: the Birthplace of Wine. They're actually in Georgia now, digging their clay cask of wine out of the ground where it has been fermenting since they buried it there last Autumn. We are going to release the 2013 Dry Riesling this day, and will have live music and bites at the Tasting Room. It's a free event, no reservations necessary. The talks will be at 1:00 and 4:00pm.

T.J. Foderaro at Inside Jersey Magazine, Alan Richman (Saveur), Robin Shreeves (Cherry Hill Courier-Post), Rosie Saferstein (NJ Monthly), and the Trenton Times' Susan Yeske have all added their voices to the coalition of the willing in the last couple of years.

Having Unionville in the pages of one of the major wine magazines had remained elusive, until last summer when Mark Squires, East Coast wine critic for the Wine Advocate sat down and tasted...

We are gearing up for harvest here at Unionville, with surefire signs like purpling Pinot Noir and golden Chardonnay reminding us that long hours, stained hands, and an opportunity to craft a whole new lot of sensational wine is just around the corner.

It is my favorite time of year. One of my favorite parts of working in a creative scientific field is our ability to...

(culti)VAR WARS: RHONE WON

About ten years ago, the Amwell Ridge Vineyard was planted on the hill across from the winery. There were more varieties than you could count on two hands, and these varieties, while all French, come from all corners of that large country that has very different climate, weather, and soils from Bordeaux to Burgundy to Champagne, to the Rhone. Different parts of New Jersey share some similarities with each of these regions, but there are no perfect correlations between New Jersey's grape growing areas and the various viticulture zones of France. So the Ridge was planted to test plots of 11 different French varieties, and ten years later, we've drawn some conclusions...
