Va La Home Vineyard

“… I have been privileged to walk in some of the world’s most-famous climats, such as Le Montrachet and Clos Vougeot,
and to see them as the farmer sees them and then to drink wine from them made by that farmer or someone in her or his family.
It’s a thrilling experience. Surely, there must also be new vineyards which have the potential for one day being notable climates,
possibly even great ones, which we can see being born in front of our eyes. In my judgment, there would have to be – and there may
be even be one such vineyard ...along the northern Piedmont plateau in Southeast Pennsylvania. Yes, Pennsylvania.”
— Roger Morris, The Daily Meal, January 2013
