Wines Tasted:
Villard Blanc (citrusy and grapefruit)
Rose (like a zinfandel)
Lucky Dog (Vignoles, like tart green apple)
Nooner (vignoles and seyval, leafy, smells earthy)
10 Spot (same leafy smell and taste)
Red Pig (named after the Razorbacks, sweet then bitter)
Dessert Vignoles (has a sharp lemon meringue flavor)
Golden Muscat (like lemon zest and the leafy taste)
Dessert Chambourcin (like a port without brandy)
Traminette (very light, not too sweet, a little floral, and no aftertaste)

Jerry Smith, a former air traffic controller, gave us a very nice tour. Sadly, none of the wines were sweet enough to be to our taste.
