Hi WinePress community,

Bond Stowers Vineyard in coastal Rhode Island grows Cabernet Franc and Merlot. This will be our second season for selling grapes. There will be limited amounts available. Their wine has won the silver medal award from the International Eastern Wine Competition for their Cab Franc 2009 and their Merlot 2009. There were 3000 wineries that entered.Looking forward to an awesome season for 2012. If anyone has any interest in buying the grapes please let me know.

Please bear with me on getting back to you right away, I'm working on the vines 7 days a week right now.

Look forward to hearing from The WinePress community!

Thanks!
Robin
Vineyard Manager

Robin,
Congrats on the silver medals!
It's nice to have your vines finally get established enough to sell grapes, isn't it!
Best of luck!

Robin,
I would be very intrested in the Cab Franc. Just let me know when you are ready to sell.

The more I learn the more I realize how much I didn't know.

I have so much more respect for farmers now!

Robin,

Do you have a website for the vineyard, or some contact information so anyone can set up a time to talk with you or come down in the summer?

Hi DaveD That is one of my winter projects. I will be setting up E-mail contact in the next few days.Website is going to take a little longer. I'm much better with the Vines than this stuff!

Sounds good, if you want to send me your email address via a conversation on my profile page (and those others who have mentioned interest here), that might be better than posting it here. The spammers will pick it up if you post on an open thread.

I look forward to hearing from you, and I hope we have another summer like last year (and not that cold rainy one in 2009)!

Thanks

I too would be interested in both varieties, especially Cab. Franc. Let me know when you're ready to sell, and I look forward to the website too.

Hi Jeremiah, Sorry I did not get back to you sooner. I will try to keep everyone up dated on the growing season when it finally starts! Were hoping for another season like last year!!!
