Just a quick update on what's happening at the Red Trail Vineyard.
the vines have been pruned and they have began to pop their buds. One of the first
things out are the new baby grapes and soon they will bloom and
start their journey to becoming wine.

We finished fertilizing the
north vineyard and will now start our process of burning down the
weeds. Burning the weeds is done with a special solution of organic
ingredients that is sprayed on the weeds which burns off the waxy cuticle
that protects the weeds cells from losing water. Also, as soon as the
ground dries a little more we will began
to plant more Petite Pearl vines and build more trellis.

Friday Nite suppers began with Juicy Lucy's, a favorite for many. Watch the website for upcoming dates for our
suppers. Click here for more info.
New wines for this year include the Red Trail
White and an all-new St. Croix with a little different favor. Our Alpha
Rose, made with King of The North grapes, is back again and continues to be one of the most popular wines. Also, you'll find Marquette and Red Trail Red.
The hops we planted a few years ago now have a 10 foot trellis
system to grow on this year. We are looking forward to a big crop of
Cascade and Willamette varieties and the tasty beer they will help flavor!
