Favorite Wine: Marechel Foch

Can wines be produced,much less grown, in New Hampshire climates? The answer is a resounding ‘yes’. What fun meeting Peter and Jane Ellis at their three year old Stone Gate Vineyards where they use only cold climate grapes, mostly from their 10 year old vines, but some of which is brought in as juice from New York state. Here is a winery which only produces 500 cases annually where you can find fun white wines. The Aurore (grape produced by Albert Seibel 1860) was dry with a delicate fruity flavor. The Cayuga wine was their driest tasting with wonderful aromas. What a nice surprise. The Vidal Blanc was clean and crisp. If this were not enough, they also sported interesting Steuben (from Cornell Univ’s Geneva, NY experiment station), Riesling, and a Winnapesaukee white Niagra which was sweet, yet not offensively so. Only two reds available at this time, but a Frontenac (1996 Univ. of Minnesota French-American hybrid) will join the offerings in a few weeks. The Leon Millot was a bit flat to my liking, but the Marechal Foch had strong aromas which I think is unusual for a cold climate grape. The Foch taste will not be for everyone, but it sure was for me. Man are we glad we went slightly out of our way to find this wonderful intimate tasting room. Absolutely fun wines carefully crafted by a New Hampshire couple wanting to carry their Yankee inventiveness to the next level for their community and state. With limited production, these fine reasonably priced wines are going to disappear quickly each season.
