  1. It is a nice event showcasing a really interesting variety. We went last year. We grow this variety in Pennsylvania and just bottled the 2013. There are not a lot of these vines producing. If you get a chance they are worth a taste. It is a deep red and full bodied vinifera. The wines made from this grape go beyond expectations for cool climate reds.

    • Thanks Chuck for your comment on the Saperavi tasting at S.S.V. I was unaware that Saperavi grapes were being grown in PA. I look forward to tasting some Saperavi the first chance I get.
