Some of Ohio’s best Baco Noirs are said to come from the Loramie Creek AVA, which is particularly unique for its soils. They are described as very deep and somewhat poorly drained, with slow permeability. They consist of silt loam, with a high concentration of carbons from decaying organic matter, over a clay subsoil. This small, 3,600-acre appellation is located entirely in Shelby County, near Ohio’s central-western border with Indiana. Although Loramie Creek has only produced wine grapes for about 30 years, it was designated as an appellation in 1982, thus being one of America’s first official viticultural areas. The area’s climate is relatively temperate. Its growing season is adequate for varieties being planted here, as the area benefits somewhat from Lake Erie’s warming effect.

Current Feature

In the southern Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina and Georgia vineyards are small and few, yet the establishment of the Upper Hiwassee Highlands could bring much more.  [>] continue
