Drinking in the Schade

A trip up to Brookings yesterday with TQ to buy a bike (a nice Trek 7100, by the way), and on the way back we stopped at one of South Dakota's few wineries, the Schade Vineyard, just west of Volga. I tasted several great wines, most of them somewhat sweet and fruity, but all of them very good. The owner, Nancy Schade, opened the winery with her husband Jim after SD changed their laws forbidding wineries. Restrictive laws still prevent them from shipping in-state, but they can deliver, and I think you can order online. Their site includes a short video and a link to more information about growing grapes here in the upper midwest. Posted by Picasa
