Wines of the Holidays: Maureen McKenna
Wine. We love it. Do you? Did you know Minnesota is home to an award-winning vineyard? Three Women and a Bottle of Wine is schooled this week by Maureen McKenna, a world-class sommelier from 7 Vines Vineyard in Dellwood, located a little west of Stillwater. McKenna discusses the award-winning wines produced at 7 Vines, delves into the storied history of the vineyard – which sits on land owned, until recently, by the family of James J. Hill, and she gives some thoughts on which wine might be a great option for your holiday gathering.
Finally, a fun fact! 7 Vines recently submitted its wine in the 2019 San Francisco International Wine Festival. Results will be released Dec. 16. Check out the 7 Vines website for results.
