That’s the description of the North Fork Valley given by Prof. Thomas Huber, who is a geographer and environmental scientist, and the title of his latest book scheduled for release in December. In an article by Thomas Wills in The North Fork Merchant Herald Wills states: “ In Huber’s prologue and first chapter of the book he argues that the North Fork is geographically very similar to the Coulon River Valley of Provence and is rapidly becoming more and more like it agriculturally and culturally. The main difference to Huber is the relatively short history of small organic farms and wineries in the North Fork compared to one centuries old in Provence.”
For ten years Evon at Leroux Creek Vineyards has been telling us this area is like Provence. Isn’t it nice that Hubor coorborates Evon’s assessment? So come try Evon’s wine and that of the other wineries in the North Fork area. Then you can determine whether the wine is similar coming from the two Provences.
The wineries in the North Fork Valley have great locations, wonderful views, gracious hosts/hostesses, and, of course, wine to write home about. And, wine you’ll want to take home. The tasting rooms are open until the end of October. They’re waiting to serve you.
