Influenced early on by the wines and winemaking practices of the Bordeaux region of France, I have consistently sought a similar perfection for the wines of Forman Vineyard. If I had to choose two words which embody the character of Forman Vineyard wines they would be finesse and elegance. As the sole proprietor of Forman Vineyard, I have the luxury of personally nurturing the wines during every stage of production – from harvest, through blending, bottling and ageing. In the age of anonymous ownership, this type of hands-on approach to winemaking is growing ever rarer. For me, it is the only way great wines can be crafted and made to share with an appreciative few.
