Favorite Wine: DeChaunac
Traveling early to North Carolina’s Yadkin Valley I passed by Cerminaro Vineyard. Alas the sign at the small family 4.5 acre vineyard stated clearly Saturday 12:00 o’clock, but I had arrived Thursday at 9:30 AM. So not to disturb the family, I quietly walked around the vineyard just to get a mental picture of this Mom & Pop vineyard setting. As I prepared to leave, Bob Cerminaro (owner & vintner) approached me with a friendly “may I help you.” I apologized for arriving much too early, but in spite of a family emergency, he invited me into his house basement winery. What a delight to find a bright, clean and dry Seyval Blanc. I missed his Vignoles which was to be bottled next week. As for the reds, I found a very acceptable Merlot and a better yet DeChaunac (a Chambourcin cross?) with 1% added sugar. A grape normally found in the New York Finger Lakes area surprised me with its aroma and taste that held remarkably long. What a delight to be treated so nicely at such an early ridiculous hour in this vineyard only producing between 4000 to 6000 bottles (not cases) of wine each year.
