Drink wine, and you will sleep well. Sleep, and you will not sin. Avoid sin, and you will be saved. Ergo, drink wine and be saved.
Medieval German saying


RockSide Vineyards is Ron and Lynn Rutter’s family-owned vineyard and winery. I’ve been watching them “grow” since 2007 and I must say a very pleasant sight/site as you drive by on Rt. 37.

Our path emerges for a while, then closes

Wine is the most healthful and most hygienic of beverages.
Louis Pasteur


On a personal note; thinking myself a “chemist” I ventured into “winemaking.” Over several years I made a lot of wine for personal use. Some of the wine was good and some was bad but none of it was wasted…LOL.. One summer I made a few gallons of wine using red raspberries and it was excellent. Over the years I developed a severe allergy to wine/alcohol so I no longer can enjoy a good glass of wine, but I can enjoy the beauty of a vineyard and appreciate the love/work involved in making a good wine.

If God forbade drinking, would He have made wine so good?
