Harvest at Tousey Winery
Ben is a marketing genius, and he has transformed the space inside Tousey Winery's tastingroom in a fabulous way. All the material you need to see is written on the wall, like in a museum. When completed, it will be one of the most unique and fun tastingrooms in the Valley.
CLEARVIEW VINEYARD IN WARWICK, NY
And for the first time I tried one of his wines. One of his wines I tasted was his Cabernet Sauvignon 2009. It had a lot of cherries up fron and a nice dry, smooth finish.
We'll see where and when Clearview opens, but in the meantime, good to know there's another winery in the valley opening. You can see his website below.
