I've had several of Clover Hill's wines. I was not impressed. Last year they won an award for their Concord Grape wine. Yech.

Dennis, different stokes for different folks.

Some people prefer sweet, and some people prefer dry, etc.

I personally prefer to spend my money locally, and I am very happy with the selections available from Clover Hill, Franklin Hill, Cherry Valley, and further south, New Hope Wineries.

One of my favorites was Pinnacle Ridge and their Chambourcin (2003?)! It deserved to win the Governor's Cup!!!

i encourage you to go to the blue mountain wineries off of route 100. they have some really good wines, cheeses and all kinds of trinkets and wine accessories. they also do tours and grape picking.

I've had Pinnacle Ridge, Vynecrest, Blue Mountain also. They were pretty good.

Just didn't like anything I ever had from Clover hill. But what the heck, they're winning awards, so what do I know?

I wont buy California wines, just because they're too expensive for what you get.

Really good wines from Chile, Argentina, and Australia - as well as Spain, Italy and even Greece.
