Abbe, the budding winemaker, appears on the cover of The WineBuzz Magazine's July/August 2015 issue. As a complement to her cheesemaking, Abbe has been studying enology, the study of wine and winemaking; and viticulture, the study of vine growing and grape harvesting, with Kent State University's two-year winemaking degree programs. Started in 2012, the Kent State program is the first in Ohio to offer college degrees related to winemaking. It is affiliated with the Viticulture Enology Science and Technology Alliance, founded about 11 years ago to serve wineries between the Appalachians and the Rockies.
Recognized as Ohio’s wine, beer, and spirits magazine, WineBuzz informs readers who are interested in wine, food, spirits and craft beers. It includes beverage reviews as well as featured articles on travel, wine, spirits and related topics. Their goal is to educate, in a reader-friendly fashion, and take the intimidation out of wine in order to enhance its enjoyment.
