It's beginning to look a lot like a vineyard........Yes! With
all the rain and warm temperatures the grape vines are growing fast and
the grapes are larger than the size of a pea. But the bad news
is we had a hail storm a week ago and it will reduce the size of the
crop by 50% or more. From my experience from the hail storm in 2007
the damage grapes turned brown and became hard and it didn't seem to affect the wine. Our wine in 2007 was very good, but the production
was low. So I guess we will have to wait and see what happens this
Now the BIG NEWS. The Winter Wine is finished and now available at
the Tasting Room at the Vineyard. The production is limited (only
60 bottles) and the cost is the same as last year at $45.00. If you
want us to reserve a bottle for you let me know asap.
