Well, its over for another year! We are very excited to say that our wines are in the tank and safe from the weather after a challenging growing season. Our American grapes and Hybrid grapes weathered the storm well. We are fortunate in the fact that we have grapes to harvest and many of our local neighbors were unable to harvest anything. It will be interesting to see what types of wines other grower/producers are able to make out of the fruit which they harvested.
When you stop by next year, expect the new wines to have a crisp taste with high acids and refreshing, fruity styles. We will be using some different yeasts and blending some new combinations to make up for some of the varieties that didn’t fare as well in the cool, wet weather. It will make for a very interesting season next year and we look forward to the changes in our tasting card.
Ultimately, we are just breathing a sigh of relief that now, things are back under our control and we don’t have to count on the weather.
