WINES

OUR WINES

Making wine is both an artistic and scientific endeavor.  Mike’s background as a botanist, biologist, and scientist coupled with his natural curiosity has resulted in more than 50 different wines – all six Bordeaux wines, Rhone wines, two Italian wines, Pinot Noir and a few whites. In addition, he has made several port-style wines and dessert wines. He is currently working on organic wines. Mike strived to make wines that tasted good to him.  Fortunately, they also tasted good to customers and wine judges as evidenced by more and more wines awarded gold medals.  While most wine-makers find a few wines to focus on, Mike thrives on being able to constantly experiment and make new kinds of wines.
