About our hosts...
The Stone Gate Vineyard is the brain child of Peter and Jane Ellis. During our evening visit, Peter and Jane treated us to a wide variety of wines and were given a tour of the winery. The got the idea in 2002 while on a sales trip to California and a visit to Napa Valley. Jane calls it a "hobby run amuck." Peter explained that they have one of the northernmost vineyards in New England. They offer 11 varieties of wine - 7 white and 4 red and they have 350 vines on the property. If cared for accordingly, the avergae vine can survive and produce for more than 100 years.

Stirring the grapes really gets Peter's juices flowing.

Remember Then:
While looking through his many buried treasures, Dick Breton found a poster used to promote the Club's first bike raffle. Prior to selling tickets on Harley's , the club initially promoted an Excelsior Henderson motorcycle during 1999 - 2000.
