Winery

Tien-Seng & Tara Chiu of Far Easton Shore Winery (Trading as Mesozoic Technologies, LLC), Easton, Talbot County, Maryland, USA.

Website

Far Eastern Shore Winery.

History

This husband and wife team had been making home made wine for many years, with friends and family continually asking for more. So they turned their hobby into a micro-winery, located on the Eastern shore of Maryland, launching it in 2008. They concentrate on the production of lightly sweet (semi-sweet) wines infused with fruit.

Due to local restrictions, the winery cannot accept visitors or provide sampling on site.

Production

They produce less than 200 cases each year and sell through local Maryland retailers. At these quantities, bottles are hand filled and labelled. We understand they are seeking to increase production levels and we eagerly look forward to the day they can sell their wine direct!

Varietal(s)

Chardonnay, with Apricot and Peach.

Alcohol By Volume (ABV)

7% (14 Proof).

Price Range

$$.

Name

Unknown.

Pairing

Best suited to light foods such as non-oily fish, pasta, fruit, salads and mild cheese.

Tasting Notes

Like all their products the base wine is masked, but not unpleasantly so, by the fruit - it is the star of the show. Peach is heavy on the nose but diminishes on the palate. Meanwhile the apricot is light on the nose and comes through strongly on the palate - along with a little citrus from the base wine. A pleasant white wine for sipping in the shade on a hot summers day, this refreshing fruity tipple is a lovely companion for late afternoon/evening as the sun goes down.

Awards & Accolades

Unknown.
