AWARDS: 1 Gold, 5 silver, 5 bronze plus 2 People's Choice Awards in spring of 2013! See our AWARDS PAGE for full details.
FIRST TIME PRODUCTION FOR US: Haskaps (June 2013) are coloring up well and producing a good crop. July we will pick our first crop of Carmine Jewel cherries. 50 plants of each were planted 4 years ago.
ALMOST 15000 BOTTLES SOLD SINCE OPENING! We're at 14300 bottles sold since opening through May 2013.
GRAPEVINE CONDITION: Just short of excellent! Although it's very early, we predict a great crop of La Crescent, Frontenac Gris, Frontenac and Marquette, with our first production of Frontenac Blanc this fall. Visit anytime to see our vines as they go from budburst and blossom in late may through veraison (French for the coloring of the grapes) in early August to harvest in late September.
YELLOW CHOKECHERRY PLANTED: This year we received several potted yellow chokecherry plants from a friend, and anticipate our first "White Chokecherry Wine" in about 5 years.
