Lincoln Peak La Crescent 2018 Gold Medal

Aug 19, 2019

Our 2018 La Crescent has won a Gold Medal at the International Cold Climate Wine Competition in Minnesota! This new vintage– just released– is flinty and a touch drier than previous years. And absolutely delicious. We enjoyed it last evening over supper on the deck of Chris’s special grilled chicken skewers, grilled eggplant, and quinoa salad with a confetti of summer vegetables.

Along with the La Crescent, our Marquette 2014, Marquette Nouveau . Read More »

His Marquette was the first example I ever tasted several years ago…  It was a Lincoln Peak Marquette that intrigued me and opened my eyes to what the cold-climate Minnesota hybrids could be – that being uniquely delicious.

August 8, 2018

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.
