We're Joe & Del, "The Wine Couple", and we moved to the county for one reason: the wine! We found many other things here since we've moved (like the food, arts and the friendliness of the people) but we remain committed to our love of the wine!

We hope to have every winery on this site and have the most extensive list of every wine in the county! Search for your favorite wine or winery using the search bar at the top left of this page and feel free to leave comments on the site. Your fellow wine lovers will appreciate the feedback ... ENJOY!

By Chadsey's Cairnes - Gamay Noir


2005 Gamay Noir:  $16.00 An earthy version of our usual cherry and pepper Gamay with extra minerality thanks to the late rains that year.

2007 Gamay Noir:  $22.00
A full flavoured Gamay, thanks to a warm growing season, that deserved oaking.  Classic cherry and pepper with toasty caramel finish.


A cheerful wine, Gamay demands little of the palette, only asking to be enjoyed as a great simple pleasure.  Known as the famous Beaujolais wine when grown in that French region, Gamay can flourish in cool climates, and particularly on our sandy and clay loam soils.  Usually the wine is laced with refreshing acidity and red berry fruit, and most years has sufficient heft and character to support oaking.  A totally gulpable, take-it-anywhere-you-go wine.  Can be served slightly chilled.  [2.8 acres; planted 2001-02]
