Harvest Over, Wine finessing in progress!

Posted on November 27, 2017 at 3:10 PM

Our 2017 crop beat our expectations and came in over 12,000 lbs of grapes!  This was 2500 lbs more than our second best crop back in 2013.  We also harvested a half-ton of cherries, plenty of haskaps, apples, pears and plums.  So it was a very good year.

Every day, Josh is clarifying, acid-adjusting, balancing the wines these grapes and other fruit produced.  We're glad we'll have a big batch of our popular La Crescent for sale again soon.  This year we'll be introducing Brianna, a grape that clearly has notes of pineapple and banana, and Cold Front, a lovely barely sweet white wine made from Frontenac blanc.  These wines should be out by late 2017 or very early 2018.

We're open year round.  Drop in and visit anytime you are in the area and we'll do some tasting together!
