LENNDEVOURS’ First Real Harvest

With most all of Long Island’s white wine grapes in and the reds coming in as well, it’s time for the first-ever LENNDEVOURS Cabernet Franc to get plucked from the vine, stomped with these size-12 feet and then fermented. That’s right folks, this weekend, I’ll be heading out to Peconic to pick my adopted row of cabernet franc at Raphael. Raphael’s winemaker — and LENNDEVOURS contributor — Richard Olsen-Harbich just emailed me and said that it’s time. Anyone want to come help?

WBW #26 Winners Announced

Beau, host of WBW #26 has posted the results of our little contest. Congratulations to Dr. Weingolb for picking 14 of the 19 entries correctly. And he gets bonus points from me for drinking Channing Daughters Winery 2005 Clones, from the Hamptons AVA on Long Island. When Beau approached me with his theme, I wasn’t sure how it would go over with the masses. But, even if we only had 19 participants, I think it was a lot of fun and something we should do again — with different regions of course.
