Sherwood House Vineyards was established in 1996. Owners Dr. Charles Smithen and wife Barbara together with its head winemaker, Gilles Martin, have been committed to the production of world class wines using only estate-grown vinifera grapes. For Dr. Smithen, “There’s very little nature and man can do in true harmony. A vineyard is one of those things.”

de gustibus non disputandum est
My first encounter with Sherwood House Vineyards was on the heels of a Louis Latour Tasting in which a 2005 Meursault was offered. I can distinctly remember the nose of the Sherwood House Vineyards 2004 Chardonnay as it evoked magical memories of my honeymoon in Dijon. In retrospect, I have come to two conclusions: Sherwood’s 2004 Chardonnay can stand up to the best of what Burgundy has to offer and my living in Long Island Wine Country is like a second honeymoon for me.
The Sherwood House Vineyards 2004 Chardonnay is indeed everything one could hope for in a Chardonnay. It doesn’t get much better than this.
Oh yes it does. Sherwood’s 2007 and soon to be released 2008 Chardonnay are proving to be a chip off the old 2004 block. Ü
Nice review. Sherwood is a great place to have a glass of wine or three, or just generally enjoy the beautiful country side and laid back atmosphere. From the firepit in winter time, to the picnic tables, to the dusty road you drive up (or walk as we do)…it’s really an enjoyable and unique place to visit.
Can’t wait to go back now!
And now Sherwood has a 2nd tasting room – comfy, cozy and classy. Ü
