We're (temporarily) out of Deirdre's wines. It looks like more than a few of you saw that feature in the New York Times. But more will be coming soon. We'll be getting the tiny production Grace and Favour still and sparkling, some Harlots and Ruffians, a bit of Lupo in Bocca, and maybe a touch more of the Ci Confondos. So if you'd like to be put in the loop, send us an email and we'll keep you posted.
We've been lucky enough to host Deirdre Heekin, author of An Unlikely Vineyard: The Education of a Farmer and Her Quest for Terroir and grower of otherworldly (OK, that other world = Vermont) wine for a number of in-shop tastings and book signing. She's poured us her just-released crop of petnat sparklers as well as her unique and delicious still wines. And now the secret is really out - her wines have just received a very large, very beautiful, very well-deserved feature in the New York Times!
We love selling Deirdre's wines. They are liquid proof that native grapes and New England weather are not incompatible with organic farming and beautiful wines. To see what's available, go to our WINES page and search on "garagista"
We also have copies of Deirdre's book, noted by the New York Times as one of last year’s top wine books, which spins a wonderfully practical account of realizing her vision of a living farm with a table at its center. Balancing rural romance with the real concerns of sinking hands into dirt, it’s filled with tips and inspiration for the existing gardener. And it will have armchair green thumbs ready to run off and buy a tractor. (Add it to your cart just below!)
