There's a New Winery in Town

I cannot believe it's been 4 months since my last wine post. I think I have been drinking some old favorites like Grooner and Shoo Fly. So I thought I would take a minute to write about the new Yellowstone Winery in town. That's right, a winery!

Montana is not a place that comes to mind when one thinks of places that wine might be made, at least not wine made with grapes! The grapes are actually Washington grown but the wine is made here in Billings. Rocky did a story there when they first opened and bought the very first 2 bottles: a table red and a Chardonnay. The red was a little young and probably would have been great after sitting in my "cellar" for about a year. The Chardonnay was nice.

A couple of months ago -- probably May -- they had a tasting. Of course we went! They were tasting their reds. The table red was much nicer this time. I ended up purchasing a Pinot Gris, which is always one of my favorite grapes. I enjoyed it very much!

  1. Oh, how I wish there was a winery in my town! Or - heck - the ability to purchase wine at the grocery store and not a separate wine store!
