Default Developing an American Grand Cru from American Grapes

I see that my previous post on the Norton grape has been completely
ignored on this board. Is this due to snobbery, ignorance or . . .
well, same thing, really. The one always results in the other.

Learn something . . .

I have heard good things about Norton wine, but I've never seen it, let alone tasted it. I look forward to trying it when the opportunity arises.

Lots of posts don't get responses, Usenet isn't exactly hopping these days. I can only speak for myself, but for me your post (in the form of an open letter to a winery I've never heard of) didn't leave me feeling a question was being asked nor that I "needed" to respond. The possibility that the post came from someone at Illinois Cellars also came to mind.
This is an international group, and I'd say chances of anyone outside US having tasted Norton is quite slim.
I don't really think we are snobs or ignorant (personally, I've enjoyed the Horton Norton, but not liked most other Nortons I've tried), but you can feel however you wish!

Insulting those with whom you hope to engage is not the best way to
perform. I would mark down heavily any pupil advocate very highly for
such an approach.
