Wines To FInd, Ep 54: Chankaska Creek Winery
Jan 21, 2021 Season 4 Episode 54
Michelle & Sandy

Guest: Chankaska Creek Winemaker John Taylor. Wines tasted: Chankaska Creek Winery's 2018 Marquette and 2017 Frontenac.

In this episode, hosts Sandy and Michelle venture into one of the lesser known America wine-growing regions to talk with Chankaska Creek Winery, located in Minnesota.
Learn about the efforts of the University of Minnesota to study grapes and wine-making with the specific goal of developing cold weather hearty grapes. Hear about the grapes that are specific to Minnesota as a result of this effort and how your Wines To Find hosts reacted to tasting them.

With California being an expensive area, many CA wine world veterans are interested in exploring wine-making in other regions. Chankaska's wine-maker, John Taylor, made just such a journey - leaving his 15+ year career in California to venture into this new wine-making territory.
For anyone interested in "off the beaten path" journeys/stories and wines, this is a great listen!
