Why Our Wine is Good
August 6, 2018
The unsung heroes of delicious wine: our summer vineyard crew. This hardworking team untangles every last vine on the farm, removing excess growth and letting the sunlight in! You can see the Before/After pics below– if we didn’t do this work, the grapes would never see the sun. It’s direct sunlight that helps ripen the fruit, and ripe fruit that makes delicious wine. Without the crew’s work, our wine wouldn’t be half as good.
These photos are Frontenac Gris, which we use to make Starlight rosé. We’re in the middle of veraison, when the grapes start to turn their final colors. You can see some purple on the shoulder of the Frontenac Gris cluster below. And the beloved Somerset Seedless table grapes are starting to ripen, as well! –Sara
