Just found out from MikeDunne’s SacBee article that BenZeitman/KatieQuin are no longer
at AmadorFootHillWnry. It was sold recently to TomJones, who had recently sold LavaCapWnry
in order to downsize their lives. http://www.ironhubwines.com/
I, of course, followed Ben & Katie from the very start at AmadorFoothill (Ben founded the wnry earlier)
and rather liked his wines. They were made in a more restrained style that was not common in AmadorCnty
in those days. They’re located on SteinerRd just below the Sobons and around the bend from GrandPere vnyd.
I believe Ben was the first to grow Sangio and Primitivo in AmadorCnty.
Not had the Iron Hub wines yet. Anybody tried them??
Wow, I figured you of all people would be up on news like that! I remember reading about Ben & Katie selling their winery but it looks like the news never hit Wine Beserkers.
I’ll be making a quick trip through the area next week but I probably won’t have time to check out Iron Hub…maybe when I’m back that way later this year. I may actually stop in at Lava Cap though, as I’ll most likely stop at Madroña. I haven’t visited either of those places in many years. Hopefully I’ll connect with Matthew Rorick to visit him and see his vineyard as well.
