Historically, the agricultural products most closely identified with the steep and narrow ridges of southwest Mendocino County have been Douglas fir, redwood and apples (its inclusion in the Emerald Triangle aside). However, a few gutsy grape growers have been tending small and scattered vineyards in the region since the late 1800s.
Wine Testing Tour India Though vineyards in the area still are small and scattered, they help form the nation’s most curious wine appellation, “Mendocino Ridge,” the only formally designated American Viticultural Area to be made up of a series of non-contiguous ridges and peaks.
Free Wine Testing To qualify for inclusion in the appellation, a vineyard must be at least 1,200 feet above sea level, the line above which Pacific fog rarely encroaches. Thus, “Mendocino Ridge” is known more poetically, popularly and promotionally as “Islands in the Sky,” each mountain top floating like a sun-lit castle surrounded by a protective gray moat.

On one side are the traditional Barolo makers, like Marchesi di Barolo, Giuseppe Rinaldi and Giacomo Conterno, whose long-aged wines have set a standard for big-hearted, mouth-filling, complex wines that are meant to be put away until they mature. On the other side are younger wineries like Scarzello, Paolo Conterno and Cascina Ebreo Torbido, whose wines tend to be a bit lighter and are more ready to drink soon after release.
Wine Testing Tour Barolo takes its name from a Piedmontese village surrounded by vineyards, and the wine has been made as a dry, tannic red since the mid-19th century. As "The wine of kings and the king of wines" favored by the aristocratic families of Turin, Barolo always had a local cachet, and over the next century the Barolo production region was expanded to include five principal towns upholding the tradition of rich, highly concentrated, long-lived wines.
Wine Testing Tour India In the past, fermentation and maceration could last up to two months, so that in big vintages the alcohol level could rise above 15%. Those made since the mid-1980s in a more modern style emphasize softness over tannins and an earlier release time over high alcohol. Traditionalists argue that such wines are thin and tend to oxidize more quickly.

Among the lesser-known wines that Fero is making so well are its Lemberger, Saperavi and Gruner Veltliner.
White Wine In India Fero Vineyards & Winery Chuck Zaleski said he tried Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Syrah, and Cabernet Franc in an experimental vineyard. Those didn't work on his site. Now he's growing Lemberger and Sapervi.
Wine Testing Tour One can't blame Chuck Zaleski for what sounds a bit like the "company line" when he starts talking about the 2015 growing season and Pennsylvania wine in general. Then again, as the owner and winemaker of Fero Vineyards & Winery in Lewisburg, Union County, you better be prepared to pursue this venture with as much optimism as possible.
