Grovedale Cabernet Sauvignon 2007

Grovedale is a brand new winery located in Wyalusing, Pennsylvania. It is owned by Kim and Jeff Homer.

Winemaker Jeff

Grovedale Winery, just opened in September 2008. The winery has five acres of vines and 10 varieties of wine. This winery offers many different flavors and styles of wines. From dry wines to sweet wines they have it all.

The winery is also home to one of the biggest winery's in Northeast Pennsylvania know as the Wyalusing Valley Wine Festival. This festival offers wine tasting food and dancing with over thirteen winery's from Northeast Pennsylvania showing up. At the winery they also feature art by local artists.

The Cabernet Sauvignon 2007 was a big surprise to me. There are more and more wineries opening up along the Mason-Dixon line, and it is slowly becoming a very solid wine region. This Cab showed beautifully. Lots of dark fruit. Nice acidity. Good tannins. A big, fruity wine, with lots of depth, and a nice,dry finish. Very nice.

Congratulations Kim and Jeff.
