Cindy Sterner doesn't have a basement anymore. She has a winery.
From the ceiling-high racks of wine bottles and a bar on one side of the basement, to the small stove and five-gallon glass carboys full of translucent wines on the other, the little space has all the necessities of a small business.
And after two years of work and countless hours of preparation, the Hanover area's High Rock Winery finally had its opening day.
"We're opening with 34 varieties," Sterner said. "And I think we should have something for everybody."

After a three-year hiatus, the Angove Family Winemakers' Vineyard Select Adelaide Hills Sauvignon Blanc is back in the U.S. marketplace in limited release--and it's been worth the wait. Grape shortages and extensive frost damage meant that the 2006 and 2007 vintages of this vibrant, refreshing Sauvignon Blanc never left the vine. Careful work in the vineyard brought in a small but first-rate crop in 2008, enough for a limited production of 1,000 6-bottle cases.

Founding father preferred the runnings of the noble grape rather than beer
Chicago, IL - January 3, 2007 -- As bookstores make ready for the release of "Beer & Food: An American History" (Jefferson Press, ISBN-10: 0977808610, ISBN-13: 978-0977808618, $24.95) by nationally recognized beer and brewing expert Bob Skilnik, the author thinks it's time to address one of the biggest historical fallacies concerning Ben Franklin. Beer-themed web sites, brewing organizations and even "beer writers" are fond of quoting the Founding Father and his love of beer. A web search of the supposed Franklin quote, "Beer is proof that God loves us and wants us to be happy," yields almost 100,000 hits, all with vague attributions that Franklin did indeed utter the quote or penned it in his long-running pamphlets of sound advice and witticisms known as "Poor Richard's Almanack."
