Kinkead Ridge will be releasing the 2012 white wines on May 25 and May 27, Memorial Day weekend, from 10-6. Quantities are limited due to the spring frosts of 2012... fewer than 100 cases of Kinkead Ridge Viognier/Roussanne! We will also have a delightful River Village Cellars White Wine blend, and River Village Cellars Traminette, both attractively priced at $9.99 a bottle! Excellent summer wines. Due to the shortage, we will be not selling these wines at wholesale until September if any are left. The winery will be open summer Saturdays from 11-5.
The winery and vineyard are for sale, as Ron and I would like to retire, see http://www.kinkeadridge.com/forsale.htm for details. We do have some interest currently from prospective buyers.
Our bottles for the 2012 whites and 2011 reds were delivered to a warehouse in Ripley. Unfortunately, their forklift has NO brakes, and 1000 pounds of weight rolled over Ron's foot, destroying his shoe and causing huge bruising and he is in a lot of pain. Nothing was broken, but the bruising is serious. He has been to the doctor and is now on antibiotics and burn cream. We hope this will not impact spraying or bottling.
