Late winter at Ripepi winery

I would like to express my deepest sympathy to Rich, Mike and Anthony Ripepi on the passing of their mother Adelaide. I had known Mrs Ripepi for over 30 years and she was a wonderful and kind person that loved her family dearly. She will be sadly missed by all who knew her.

     Rich Ripepi is the owner of the Ripepi winery in Monongahela Pa. I stopped by the winery today and talked to Zach and Mike as they were pruning vines in the vineyard. The vineyard looked good and well maintained coming out of this unusually mild winter. I couldn’t help thinking that with a little wine makers good luck this years harvest could be something special.
