J. Maki (PA)
Ten years ago, the prestigious European wine competition, the Vinalies Internationales, put a tiny local vineyard—then known as French Creek Ridge Winery—on the map. I remember when it happened, I dragged my wife Dominique there when we went to visit her family in Chester County. I have been seeking it out every time I go back to Pennsylvania. I have a bottle in my cellar now. Now known as J. Maki, this winery has continued to make fantastic sparkling wine in the Brandywine region of Pennsylvania.
