For this month’s Featured Artist of the Month Series, we are switching gears and featuring photography by Katie Demers!

We asked her some questions to learn a little bit more about what inspires her.Continue Reading

I think about funnel cakes, fried turkey legs, and well, just about anything fried at the State Fair. I dream about the ripest stone fruits – peaches, plums, nectarines and apricots – at their very best and freshest moment at the farmers’ markets.

If you are a Heringer Estates fan, then your wine knowledge and tastes might extend to Aglianico, Petit Verdot and perhaps a nice Teroldego. We’re so fancy!

Join us as we rediscover a wine grape that changed the entire course and history of winemaking in America!Continue Reading
