While we cannot grow Chardonnay in New Hampshire, the grapes and juice for Chardonnay are readily available to us. Like many other places, people buy grapes for their wines from other growers.
This Chardonnay is lightly oaked, slightly buttery, and a nicely balanced wine.
We felt it was time that our vineyard pups have a wine named for them. Mike Appolo named this wine Besties knowing well that people would also read Beasties. Either way, the name works.
Sam (the boy) and Sage (the one-eyed girl) protect the vineyard from turkeys and other pests. They are very smart and loyal pups. They have been here in the vineyard since they were only a few weeks old.
They really our our best friends and best friends to one another. You can often meet the two of them in our home vineyard in Derry.
