Kinkead Ridge  What's New     


July  2007   Click any photo to enlarge it.

Big day July 27th! KVIE Public Television, Sacramento, filmed the vineyard and winery for a nationally syndicated broadcast show called "Americas Heartland". Details will follow when we know the dates the show will be aired.

We are often asked about food and wine pairings. This is a great site to browse, Natalie MacLean's Food Matcher.

Now tasting at the winery: 2006 Viognier/Roussanne; 2006 Riesling; 2006 white Revelation, our Sauvignon Blanc/Semillon blend. We have a very limited supply of 2004 gold medal Cabernet Sauvignon at the winery; 1 bottle limit.

The perfect day... new shoes  (the Easy Spirit outlet is located east of Ripley) and new wine. The Loze sisters go shopping!


Kinkead Ridge in France! Nancy's best friend Norma visited friends in France and brought a bottle of the 2004 Cabernet Sauvignon. It was pronounced: "un tres bon vin!" I like that blue tablecloth!

Kinkead Ridge is on YouTube. Go to, and type Kinkead Ridge into the search box. There are two major videos:  "A Vineyard Year" movie and a "Photo Album", as well as our entry into the Wine Spectator competition, and several "mini-videos" about vineyard and winery operations.


Food and wine pairing:


   Kinkead Ridge wine and recipes will be featured in the upcoming "Ohio Food and Farms: From Garden Gate to Dinner Plate" by Marilou Suzsko.  Marilou is a regular contributor to the Cleveland Plain Dealer Food Section, the Sunday Magazine and Feast.


"Why  go for those long distance relationships when you can find love in your own back yard." 


Brillat Savarin noted two features which distinguish man from beast:
1. Fear of the future.
2. Desire for fermented liquors.

Funny drinking quotes:

"Sometimes when I reflect back on all the wine I drink I feel shame. Then I look into the glass and think about the workers in the vineyards and all of their hopes and dreams If I didn't drink this wine, they might be out of work and their dreams would be shattered. Then I say to myself, "It is better that I drink this wine and let their dreams come true than be selfish and worry about my liver."
