Solar-powered and certified green, with an organically farmed vineyard, Ovid’s winery, located not far from the Colgin IX and Bryant Family estates on Pritchard Hill, combines state-of-the-art technology with more traditional practices, such as gravity-flow distribution of fruit to the fermentation tanks, as well as concrete and wooden tank fermentation. Human talent, not equipment, is the most critical factor to the success of this profound Bordeaux-style red wine: Ovid’s dream team includes winemakers Andy Erickson and Michel Rolland, as well as vineyard manager David Abreu. ($200)
