There’s always time for wine.
Check out Wide River Winery to taste test a variety of wines curated by a family of women proud of their bustling little winery and tasting room. Plus, you can take your tasting glass (and a bottle of your new favorite wine) home. Dorothy O’Brien began growing grapes and making wine for her family in 1997. Dorothy’s daughters, Ann Pelton and Liz Quinn, and her sisters, Martha O’Brien and Ceil O’Brien, focus on sales, marketing and the business side of the winery. Inspiration for many of the wine names come from the family’s law heritage. Dorothy is an employment law attorney and her husband, Charlie Pelton, is a retired Clinton County judge. Lots of other lawyer family members have been known to sample as part of our never-ending quest for top quality wine.
