William Wycliff Champagne Archives[edit]

The cluster is small, cylindric-conic, with small deep blue berries, whose thin skins don't have much tannin and colouring pigments. Official policy also endorsed consumption as trade in liquor provided an important source of revenue to the early colonists. Beginning in the 1630s, an ad valorem tax was levied on both imported wines and spirits and domestic products. The resulting monies were used to finance a wide range of local and provincial activities, from education in Connecticut, to prison repair in Maryland, to military defense on the frontier (Krout 1925, p. 19).

A mild winter with few rainfall was followed by a very hot spring that caused an anticipation of the blossoming. The hot weather in the month of August caused a reduced crop, inferior to the previous year. The hot and sunny summer favoured an exceptional harvest of grapes for drying.

A lean, savory mouthful with spiced, herbal baked fruit notes, this Ripasso was made with f​resh grapes (70 percent Corvina, 25 percent Rondinella, 5 percent Molinara)​ from​ the Classico territories of Negrar, Fumane, San Pietro [blue nun gold edition] in Cariano, and Marano,​ then​ refermented with grape skins held​ from​ the year's Amarone and Recioto production. Aged for an additional​ six​ months in bottle,​ this wine shows light notes of seared meat and tobacco. <p>Prices were extremely reasonable given the quality of food and detail to presentation. Seems like a lot of great choices on the menu yet to try. Enough selection to keep you wanting to come back to try for more yet not overwhelming. Quality over quantity I think is their philosophy. The chef has something good going here. The seafood hot pot appetizer on the table beside us looked really delicious for next time.
