I recently received an e-mail from Marti Macinski to keep me up to date on activities at Standing Stone Vineyards. Marti and Tom Macinski have owned and operated Standing Stone Vineyards since 1991. They have steadily increased the yearly production from 800 cases in that first vintage of 1993 to about 8000 cases last year. They are officially done picking grapes with great results and have some of their wine fermenting while sitting on the lees. Their Cabernet Sauvignon is starting to ferment and needs punched down four times a day. Tom is looking for volunteers that want to learn some winemaking skills while helping to basket press the Cab. Even if you are not up for a hands- on winery experience you can always stop by the tasting room that is open every day and while you are there don’t miss the chance to sample the bread and the many dips.
