Saperavi Vertical at Standing Stone Vineyards
Hector, 1PM, 3:30PM

Standing Stone Vineyards invites the public to taste several vintages of their Dark Red, made from their Saperavi grapes, at their second annual Saperavi Vertical Tasting, Sunday November 17. The Vertical Tasting will be led by winery owner, Martha Macinski, who, with her husband and winemaker Tom, have a deep connection with the Saperavi grape. “Saperavi is one of the oldest vinifera varietals, originating in Georgia, Russia,” explains Marti. “And Tom’s heritage is Russian, so we have a special place in our heart for this hearty, rich grape.” “We think it is very well suited to our Finger Lakes growing conditions, and we know wine enthusiasts will be tasting more of it,” Marti goes on. “In fact they’ve probably already had some wine from this wonderful grape but didn’t realize it, because the grape name can’t be used on the label for wines made in the U.S, according to the Tax and Trade Bureau. But I’ll explain that story the day of the Vertical Tasting.”
