Wine voices: David Hohnen, McHenry Hohnen & The Farm House

“With a third generation of winemakers we’ve got a culture of wine; people who socialize together that are winemakers. I think that’s really positive. I see a younger generation of winemakers turning their backs on what I saw as way too much science in winemaking.  I love what they’re doing. Some are taking it a bit too far: I don’t drink orange wine. But I love the philosophy behind it and those that are getting the balance correct are making wines that really speak of this region.”
