Sam Tenney / The Citizen Thomas and Patricia Ambrose grow grapes at their home vineyard in Sennett. The couple sold almost four tons of grapes to local wineries last year.
Rosé In 2005, Ambrose and her husband, Thomas, planted about 200 vines in the yard bordering their home on Cherry Street Road in Sennett. They selected three seedless varieties - Concord, Himrod and Reliance - along with 25 vines of Niagaras and 100 seeded Concord vines.
Sauvignon Blanc The Ambroses initially wanted to sell their crop as table grapes. When they tripled their vine count with the introduction of 400 vines of Cayugas to their one-acre homestead, the Ambroses began selling to wineries as well. Though the Cayugas were grown with the intent of turning them to wine, Patricia learned she had produced enough Concords to share with wineries as well.
Posted: January 19, 2010 Last week I walked into a wine shop that indulges itself in two wonderful luxuries. One is its specialization in small-production, artisanal efforts. No stack-cased critter wines for them.
Cabernet Shiraz The other luxury is that the shop occupies a large area, allowing the wines to be cradled in open wood crates arranged in long rows on the floor. Space is abundant, unlike at most wine stores, where bottles are squeezed into vertical racks, which in turn are shoehorned into a small shop space.
Rosé As I looked around the store, I realized that not a single wine crate bore a sign that told me anything about the wines within.

Wines To India Do lunatics make better gardeners than sane people? I'm toying with this question during a walk through the magnificent grounds of what was once the Beechworth Lunatic Asylum. Although the imposing Victorian sanatorium closed its doors in 1995 - it now houses a university campus, conference centre and a chic new spa - the spirit of Robert Coates, a former patient, hangs heavily over its ornate gardens.
Grover Vineyards India In 1867, Coates, described as "one of the best landscape gardeners in the colony", was given the task of laying out the extensive gardens, including the grand avenue of English oaks and lavish beds of rhododendrons and azaleas.
