Appian Way Vineyards is situated just outside of the town of Forestville. The property was farmed as an organic apple orchard until 2001, when the owners removed the trees and replanted several acres with three different clones of Pinot Noir grapes (clones 115, 777 and Pommard). This two-acre vineyard boasts what is known as Goldridge soil, which is a fine sandy loam with excellent drainage. Over a lengthy wine-fueled dinner, we managed to convince owners Tom and Kelly Keegan that we would handle their fruit with the utmost care. We consider ourselves very fortunate to include this vineyard in our portfolio.
