Gretchen, Courtnee and Ron

We were so happy to participate in the official opening weekend of Troutman Vineyards (330-263-4345) near Wooster, Ohio; Andy Troutman of Wolf Creek and Troutman Vineyards and Deanna Troutman (aka Troutwoman) had a fabulous turnout for the new tasting room.  Wonderful Menagerie Red (Chamboursin), Menagerie White (Seyval) and gold medal winning Farmers White (Vidal). Troutman Vineyards is also featured in this month's Ohio Magazine.
