As far as we know, we’re the only winery on the east coast that makes Counoise. There might not be ten wineries that do it in the entire country! The grape is originally from the Rhone Valley where its used in the Chateauneuf du Pape blend. We grow it on the Amwell Ridge, our vineyard site across the street from the winery. Sometimes it goes into the Hunterdon Mistral Rose’, sometimes into the Hunterdon Mistral Rouge, and when it’s special we bottle it as a varietal wine. In 2015 we made just one barrel- less than 20 cases are available. Cherry Grove Farm will be sampling and selling their incredible cheeses, and we will have some fresh baked bread to enjoy with them as well. Tastings are $10 per person. Counoise tastings are complimentary all weekend, beginning with our Open Mic event Friday evening the 8th.
