On the record ... with Rick Mamoser
On Saturday, Feb. 2, the Illinois Grape Growers and Vintners Association presented Rick Mamoser of Prairie State Winery with its winemaker of the year award.
Mamoser taught high school science for 13 years in suburban Chicago before he and his wife, Maria, also a teacher, opened Prairie State Winery in Genoa in 1999.
The Mamosers produced 500 gallons of wine that first year; last year’s vintage produced almost 13,000 gallons and the winery has steadily expanded its selection over the years.
