Another bump ....
We did make it to Armida this trip and HIGHLY recommend it. The grounds are lovely and they are getting ready to do a renovation on the main tasting building which will create a separate area for reseve tastings and or club members.
Armida is the winery that gets the most grapes from the Maple Vineyard. They get all of the grapes from Tina's block and from the other large single block. Apparently this is a long-term agreement that isn't slated to change in the near future.
Grapes from the other blocks are sold to various wineries in the county. At this writing, Bella, Lambert Bridge ( 2 bottles), Armida, Dutcher Crossing and Passalaqua were the only places that we heard that had any left. Carol Shelton might.....

Tina told me that they decided that they are wine growers and not wine makers so they will not make any more wine under their label...thus the decision to sell what they made and move on.

Do you think the Maples' will make another vintage? Seems like they put this one on sale quickly.

Hi Hawkeye.
I have not been to Armida yet. It has been recommended by a couple of folks on Trip Advisor whose tastes seem to align with ours, and since the Maples have felt they warrant the task of brokering the remainder of their own label, I am planning to head there on our next trip. Their zins have been described as luscious and divine by people whose opinion I respect and who have steered me well so far, so...that's my story.
Sorry I can't be better help...

Yesilovewine and anyone else who has visited Armida.

Have you tasted at Armida? Have you tasted their Maple zins? What was your opinion. How about their other wine? I am trying to decide whether to taste there in March or not. Thanks for your input.
