Sipping Wine with Wendell

Several years ago, Larkspur Press printed a limited number of these broadsides of Wendell Berry's epic poem, "Manifesto: The Mad Farmer Liberation Front." The broadsides are available exclusively in the tasting room of the Smith-Berry Vineyard and Winery in New Castle KY.

The farm and winery, located in beautiful Henry County, is owned and operated by Chuck Smith and Mary Berry-Smith, daughter of Wendell Berry. They've built up an impressive business over the years and offer everything from CSA shares and cuts of lamb organically raised by Tanya and Wendell to community art exhibits, dinners and concerts at the farm. Unfortunately they've sold out of the broadsides, but be sure to check in with them if you're in the Henry County area (north-central KY). A bunch of great music, food, and entertainment is lined up for the fall.

Here's Chuck talking about his grapes:
