Some sad news from Red Hook: the Red Hook Winery was destroyed in the storm surge and they're assuming total devastation. Head winemaker Christopher Nicolson on the loss: "It's just devastating. We have wines in here as old as 2008, some of the '09, all the 2010 vintage and the 2011. Just thinking of all the time and all the work that's gone into each of these barrels?We think of our wines almost as if they're little people. We put so much care and work into raising and developing these little people, these wines, day in and day out over years and years...You just can't get that back, all that time and work. Ugh."
