As a guide gives an overview of Morgan Ridge Vineyards’s 7 pastoral acres, visitors marvel at the flourishing rows of grapevines and the heavy boughs of bountiful wine-bottle trees. The mineral-rich, ploughed earth at Morgan Ridge Vineyards delivers a tasty array of local varietals that invigorate palates with vivid jolts of flavor. During a complimentary tasting of eight vintages, patrons revel in the notes of Hungarian-oak tannins in the cabernet sauvignon, delight in the earthy tones of the fruity sangiovese, and rack their brains to find which pairing of cheese turns the crisp seyval blanc into a potion of immortality. Guests leave the enchanting estate with vivid memories of the vineyard villa and two handsome souvenir glasses.
Morgan Ridge Vineyards
Lovingly tended by proprietors and master winemakers Tommy and Amie Baudoin, the idyllic fields of Morgan Ridge Vineyards yield delicious, fruity batches of handcrafted vino. Six varieties of grapes sprout from the fertile grounds, including classics such as chardonnay and merlot and rarer fruits such as sangiovese and seyval blanc. Within the newly built winery, stout oak barrels house a harvest of 1,500 cases of wine per year, and a tasting room welcomes guests with warm, comfortable hospitality. Regular tours explore the vineyard’s rolling hills and neat rows of plants before retiring to the tasting room, where patrons sample the fruits of the Baudoin's labor by drinking their wines and trying on their work gloves.
