Now we’re waiting. We’re waiting for the grapes to ripen to just where we want them– sugars up, acid down, flavors delicious– before we begin harvest. But don’t worry– we’re not just drinking wine on the porch.

We’re sampling and testing the different varieties and different blocks. We’re cleaning equipment and scrubbing tanks in preparation. We’re power-washing the harvest lugs. And we’re taking in the beauty of the almost-ripe grapes on the . Read More »

Our wines won eight medals at the 9th annual International Cold Climate Wine Competition this year. Among them was a double gold for our Petite Pearl rosé, which we made for the first time last winter. It sold out last spring, so you’ll just have to wait till this winter to taste the next vintage!

Our soon-to-be-released Summit won a silver medal (we submitted it under the name Ridgeline, but have since . Read More »

Marquette shows the first signs of turning its true color. A few pink berries appear, then a few more; they turn purple and a week later they’re darker still; finally by early September they’re an dark inky blue. Frontenac and our other red varieties are not far behind the Marquette. For the white grapes the change is more subtle: green turns to pale yellow and then gold (in the case of La . Read More »

Vineyard manager Roxanne Smith leads our great crew through the vineyard each summer. For most of July and part of August, they work methodically, vine by vine, to untangle the shoots. They pull the shoots down toward the ground, revealing the grapes near the top, closest to the wire. They pull leaves from around the clusters and makes sure the sun shines on each one.

We call this “shoot positioning,” a bland . Read More »
