Recently, I had the opportunity to return to Sinking Valley Winery for the first time since I visited when writing my book. We missed the road and as it happens that was a good thing because they have moved. The new location is just off Highway 461 in a larger building with the name written on the roof. Visitors are much more likely to find it on a drive to the Somerset area.
While missing the charm of the old Plato Post Office building where they were previously located, the new site offers the Burton’s the opportunity to have a wider variety of wine related items on display. One of their most popular wines is Prohibition Repeal Red, a sweet red featuring three collector labels depicting the beginning, enforcement, and repeal of Prohibition. Also popular are their fruit wines such as blueberry and blackberry. For dry wine lovers, they have a Chardonnay and a Cabernet Sauvignon.
Zane and Amy Burton welcome visitors at this new location with tastings, wine sales, and unique gift items.
