A Great Value Red Wine

CIMG1978

Once in a while you run across a wine that just over-delivers in a crazy way. This is one of those times. Below are the notes on a Nero D’avola we recently opened. Nero D’avola is a Sicilian grape and a wine that is generally pretty full bodied with bold fruit and a lot of

Visit to Diamond Hill Vineyards – Aug 31, 2013

Approaching the tasting room

Diamond Hill Vineyards in Cumberland RI is always one of our favorite winery stops. There’s a calming,
