His Pointe of View Winery, established in 2002, sells wine, some made from grapes grown in his own vineyard. It also has expanded, in a small way, into distilled spirits.
Chenin Blanc India "I call us a nano-distillery. I'm treating distilled spirits as a supplement to the winery. The winery is my primary focus," Peterson said.

Shipments of sparkling wine to U.S. markets were up 15 percent in the first nine months of 2010, according to industry data, but anecdotal accounts suggest consumer spending on New Year's bubbly may remain mostly flat.
Sauvignon Blanc India For makers of sparkling wine, the holiday season is make-or-break time. As Bill Wilson, co-owner of the Wilson Creek Winery & Vineyards in Temecula, said, "It's all about the fourth quarter." Wilson said he spends much of the first nine months gearing up for the end-of-the-year rush. "It's something that you could drink every day, but champagne is definitely associated with celebration," he said.
Chenin Blanc India Frank Bellino / The Press-Enterprise Wilson Creek Winery says its Almond Champagne brand of sparkling wines represents about half of its sales. Wineries typically see the holidays as make-or-break for the year.

A few years ago, Canadian construction baron Cliff Lede sat at the blending table of his newly acquired Napa Valley winery, and decided to put his stamp on the place. He loved wine and he loved vintage rock ’n’ roll. “We could have all the vineyard blocks named after classic rock songs,” he remembers thinking.
Rosé India So instead of blocks mapped out according to arcane codes – such as “West 9” or “East 8” – his plots of Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon carry titles such as Moondance (after Van Morrison’s 1970 classic), Truckin’ (for the Grateful Dead) and Hotel California (The Eagles).
Sauvignon Blanc India For Mr. Lede, 55, the new system is not only nostalgic, but practical. “Someone says ‘A block’ and I say, ‘Oh, you mean Dark Side of the Moon” – he says, alluding to the Pink Floyd album. “At least I can remember what that is.” This is the ultimate baby boomer’s fantasy fulfilment – to not only own your own 25-hectare California vineyard and winery, but to combine it with references to your youth in the 1960s and 70s. And if visitors to Cliff Lede Vineyards crave more refinement, they can stay the night in his Poetry Inn for up $1,400 (U.S.), or sip his 2007 Poetry cabernet, priced at $150 a bottle.

BEND, OR -- Is wine made from blueberries still wine? Yes, says Oregon farmer Brian O'Driscoll. He says he intended to make wine from the blueberries growing on his Lebanon farm, but he's running in to trouble getting the right permits for his business. Linn County planning officials say Oregon Law defines a winery as a facility that processes grapes. But, O'Driscoll says the law doesn't specifically exclude blueberries. He was able to obtain a conditional use permit, which allows him to process the blueberries, but he must adhere to stricter restrictions than he would have had his property been classified as a winery.
Late Harvest Chenin Blanc (dessert Wine) O'Driscoll expects his 15 acres to produce about 500 cases of wine a year. That could start within the next six months.
