“Howard, your help and advice have saved me tens of thousands of dollars. I look forward to working with you again on this project.”

- Dana Theis, Owner, Black Wolf Vineyards


“We feel very fortunate to have met Howard Bursen in the Spring of 1995. He gave us the confidence to forge ahead into the winemaking world. Under his guidance, we produced three premium wines which were well-received by the public. The high quality of these wines helped to launch our business and establish our reputation. We enjoyed working with Howard, and will always remember the days he spent with us at South Hollow Vineyards.”

- Kathy Gregrow and Judy Wimer,
Owners, South Hollow Vineyards


“During your consulting period, we were impressed not only with your comprehensive knowledge of winemaking and winery management, but with your ability to instruct and guide. This winery’s success has been in large part thanks to your ability as a consultant and teacher.”

- Captain Richard Alexander,
Former Owner, Vinland Wine Cellars


"I have known Howard Bursen for about four years. He was recommended to me as a consultant by Bruce Reisch at the Cornell Experiment Station in Geneva, New York.

I find him to be a reliable and ethical person to work with. He possesses a broad range of experience, and he makes wines that reflect the same standards that he advocates in others. Howard’s abilities and inclination to solve problems with a hands-on approach also make a big difference in his effectiveness, compared to others.

I would enthusiastically recommend Howard as a consultant and encourage anyone to telephone me to discuss the subject further.”

- Kipton C. Kumler
, Owner, Turtle Creek Winery
