Stonehaus Winery, Crossville TN

Stonehaus Winery, Crossville, TN

Over the last several years my family has had the opportunity to make multiple trips to Knoxvile, TN. One of our regular routes includes Highway 40 from Nashville. Recently the trip had a little flexibility that allowed an impromptu stop at Stonehaus Winery in Crossville.

Stonehaus Winery opened it’s doors in April 1991 offering five wines that were all sold on site. Now they are the only winery with statewide distribution.

2014 Lady Hill Pinot Noir

2014 Lady Hill Pinot Noir

This is a small production wine from the Eola-Amity Hills AVA in Oregon; only sixteen barrels were produced.  Eola Springs Vineyard is a 70-acre vineyard planted in 1972. The terroir from the sedimentary soils including volcanic and marine sediment in the upper terrace lend itself to the noticeable mineratlity in this wine.

The Right Wine Glass

The Right Wine Glass

So, is there really a right glass or way to hold it in order to maximize the wine experience?  Personally, I would answer both “yes” and “no” depending on the circumstances. Stay tuned to the end to find out why I say “no”.

The shape of the glass and whether it is stemmed or stemless can effect the wine experience. Some would say the shape is more important, but I think they equally can influence the presentation of the wine.
