The firm had relocated northward as a refugee from the widening Prohibition movement in southern States during the early s. But to make the connection between a bottle of wine-flavored ginger ale and a winery established in , first we have to go back to Although muscadines thrive in the piedmont and coastal plain of all southeastern states, only North Carolina claims the original native Scuppernong as its own.
The Scuppernong is a bronze muscadine. The first recorded account of these grapes occurs in the log book of Giovanni de Verrazano, French explorer and navigator, who discovered them in in the Cape Fear River Valley. It is the oldest cultivated grapevine in the nation at more than years old. During the 17th and 18th centuries cuttings of the mother vine were placed into production around a small town called Scuppernong in Washington County and along the Cape Fear River east of Fayetteville.
Her mother was Eleanor Dare, the daughter of John White, governor of the colony. Raleigh was forced to go back to England to resupply the colony and when he returned in , it had vanished, along with Virginia. Moving south to Brinkleyville, North Carolina in , he purchased acres of farmland. By he had established a vineyard he called Medoc after the famous French wine region in Bordeaux.

Five years later, the winery was the largest in North Carolina and claimed to be the leading wine producer in America. No doubt Californian wine historians may question that. In any case, Weller distributed his wine throughout the eastern states. In Weller was cultivating over varieties, but his focus was on the native Scuppernong grape.

He bought all the Scuppernong grapes he could find, paying high prices to outbid competing wineries; thus cornering the market in the south Atlantic states. By the time of national Prohibition, Virginia Dare brand wine was selling 1,, cases a year and was the most popular bottled wine in the country. Garrett decided to utilize the extracted alcohol to manufacture flavorings. Under the leadership of Dr. Bernard H. This label appears to be from just before During Prohibition, Garrett retained his vast empire of vineyards, selling grapes by the ton for the home winemaking market which was legal under the law.
Finally in with the repeal of Prohibition, Garret and his Virginia Dare Company were almost instantly ready to resume where they left off and continue national dominance in popularity for both their red and white wines. These labeled corkers probably date from the close of Prohibition in or just after. Although the left hand example shows a This almost brings us back to where we started with the bottle of wine-flavored ginger ale. His entrepreneurial spirit was part of the development and history of wine in America.
However, the claim he embossed on his bottles as being founded in is a good story, but like most history, it had a few holes along the way. On the other hand, it is entirely true that my Virginia Dare wine-flavored ginger ale bottle can legitimately claim its roots are in the earliest history of grapes and wine in America. Some of the more interesting and dependable references for those interested. No mentions of ginger ale, though. Is there elegance and mystique in a milk glass soda bottle from Massachusetts?

I received a call yesterday from an old-time historical flask collector named Joe Wood. I bet Dick Watson has it. Though the paper was brittle with age, the queen was as black as coal and so heavy that Joe said he could not even pick it up with one arm. There was some type of faded gold, painted decoration on the form as you can see in the pictures. Joe thought back and mentioned that he had purchased the piece from an old, roving bottle collector, named David Goad who traveled the states in a motor home.

Cohn Estate, where Scarecrow grapes are born, borders what was once the legendary vineyard of Inglenook winemaker Gustave Niebaum, whose plantings blanketed more than 1, acres of the Napa Valley at the close of the 19th century. John Daniel Jr. In , Daniel convinced his neighbor, J. Cohn, to plant eighty acres of Cabernet vines on the acre parcel Cohn had purchased a few years prior. He had no ambitions to become a winemaker himself, but Daniel promised to buy his grapes, so Cohn planted vines. The rest, as they say, is history. Cohn Estate grapes are highly sought-after in part because Cohn bucked the trend, begun in the mid- s, of replacing vines planted on St.
George rootstock with the supposedly superior AxR I hybrid. Over time, vines grafted onto this new stock proved highly vulnerable to phylloxera. But by then, virtually all of the old St. George vines in Napa had been destroyed. Only the original J. Cohn vines survived. Winery Website: scarecrowwine. As told by H. William Harlan discovered an isolated territory.
The hidden expanse — ancient and untamed — moved him deeply, but remained elusive until the Harlan family finally captured it in As the second generation explored and worked with the land, they began to make discoveries of their own. At the core of this wild terrain they found a powerful geologic convergence, which had shaped its steep, rugged topography, and created the conditions for an altogether exotic winegrowing environment. Over time they found that the dramatic landscape — just beyond the edge of the known — would slowly change them, and ultimately inspire a new endeavor: Promontory.
And at a certain point we start to look past our lifetime, with the hope that the next generation might, in their own way, go beyond the dreams we initiated. When I first came upon the land that would become Promontory, its untamed ruggedness was a surprise — quite different from anything I had encountered in the Napa Valley. This wild place, overlooked for most of the 20th century, emanated a power and a mystery and an undefinable allure.
This was the beginning of a new era, a time of exploration and discovery led by the next generation. Wines from hillsides of Promontory reflect the many aspects of the territory: the native forests, the moisture of the ephemeral fog, and the minerality of the geologic underpinnings. These disparate facets in symphony provide a natural balance of freshness, energy, and tannin. We believe these traits, in wine, are the building blocks of great vitality and long life. It began in , a big, gorgeous vintage that gave us an abundance of glorious fruit.
With no rules, no restrictions, we created what we called the super blend, the best of the best. We thought that was kind of absurd. The Absurd could be one varietal, it could be five. It could come from one vineyard lot, it could come from a dozen. Each time we make The Absurd we start with a blank canvas. Our sole guideline is our palate. Our sole aim is the best Napa Valley wine of the vintage.

The vines receive full sun and optimal heat during the day and are cooled by marine fog at night. These conditions allow each of the three clones planted in this vineyard 4, 6, and , to display its own unique character, and this celebration of individuality is the essence of Schrader.

With rocky soils and low yielding vines facing west that embrace the afternoon sun, Lotus produces a wine of power and concentration. Packed with layers of black fruit, with notes of mocha, anise and graphite, Lotus tends to be the most full bodied of the three wines Dana Estates produces.
Over the last decade we have been moving toward dry-farming, forcing the vines to look deeper for water. Through the hot, dry season we kept one block of Lotus completely dryfarmed. But we were rewarded with small, intense berries that weathered the heat with little dehydration. The clone ripened a bit slower and was harvested on September 23rd.
We paired the fruit and structure expressed by the different clones with three different fermentation tank types; concrete, oak upright, and barrels. The wines were fermented with native yeast and macerated on skins for 31 and 46 days. The clone 15 had the most structure and took the longest for the fruit and tannin to integrate.

This first growth vineyard is meticulously farmed by David Abreu, with whom we have worked closely for more than 12 years. This wine intends to be a testament to the dedication of Bryant Family winemaking and vineyard team who aim to produce the finest wine possible from this site. Abreu Vineyards winery in Napa Valley, California was founded in by the viticulturist David Abreu, a third-generation rancher from St.
Founder David Abreu on his Tractor, about 30 years ago. Early on, it was all about the vineyards. He never released the wine. A close observer, David had the opportunity to learn from some of the best. Winemakers who understood, as he did, that it was all about the vineyards, the soils, the fruit. As for the winemaking, he got a lot of advice, listened to it all, and then carved his own path. Made wine the way he thought it should be made. Some people shook their heads. Wondered why he went to such lengths.
He just does what he feels, in his gut, is right.
The grapes require a long hang time to ripen, and when they do ripen, they make an exceptional wine. In fact, Lake wines have been produced only 16 times since In , the MacDonald Family planted the first vines on the property since prohibition as the last of the cherry trees were being removed.
For 60 years the grapes had been sold exclusively to Robert Mondavi and had been part of his Reserve and To-Kalon blends since their inception.
