Our beloved Somerset Seedless table grapes are ready. These are, hands down, the tastiest table grapes you’ll ever eat. If you’ve only ever had grapes from the grocery store, you’re in for a treat. Sweet and tangy, bursting with flavor, bright and refreshing.

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 . Read More »

Veraison. This is the term given to the phase when grapes begin to change color, soften, accumulate sugars, and metabolize acids. It seems to sneak up on us every year. As these first signs of ripening appear, we begin texting photos to our fellow VT winegrowers to see if they’re seeing the same signs in their vineyards. It has been an uncharacteristically hot and dry summer and we are seeing . Read More »

Grapevine flowers don’t have petals to speak of (at least none that I’ve found) and they don’t look like much, but . Read More »
