Knight’s Gambit Vineyard

Our family’s culture and rituals have always included wine. The wine was undoubtedly there on some of our most memorable occasions together. They would smash the year’s produce in a tub with their bare feet. My father would slip down to the basement on holidays and return with a dusty bottle of excellent age and vintage. Now I can see our family’s wine with Alexandra’s artwork on the label in our Tasting Room. Website
