Tonight we had a fantastic gathering of wine makers and growers, from Oxford, to Dayton, to Southern Ohio. Everyone brought a dish for dinner, and wine! This batch is from Harmony Hill, Meranda Nixon, Kinkead Ridge, Henke, Burnet Ridge, Hanover Winery, Vance Family Winery, Steve Pearce wines and more! Ron found a 2006 Viognier/Roussanne and a 2004 Cabernet Franc in our cellar, and a 2005 Meranda Traminette. And a Serrato Petite Syrah from Mexico!
Here's a picture of all the southern Ohio winemakers
